Meet the Office Canines: Aria and Poco

Aria and PocoAria & Poco are yellow Labrador Retrievers. They are cousins, born just a few days apart in August 2013. Aria is redder and darker than Poco. Aria is the ‘office dog’ and Poco spends his days with Dr. Ellie’s husband on the "Caron Brothers" job site. Once in a while he comes to visit. Aria is relatively quiet and spends a lot of time in her crate but comes out to say ‘hi’ to her favorite dog loving humans. She is very cautious and may greet you with a bark if you arrive with crutches or a cane. Poco, on the other hand, will usually greet you with a very waggy tail and slobbery kisses. They are both very smart and very affectionate.

We ask that you not feed them any treats. They are both on specialized diets and Poco especially is very allergic to many things. Labrador Retrievers are known to gain weight just looking at food!
