Growing up on a ranch in Montana, I learned early on that you get back from the earth what you put into it and if you treat it well you'll get great yield. I always wanted to live in a mountain town like Bozeman. It's an amazing place to raise a family and I think what Bozeman brings is this sense of community and a work ethic and a pride in what we do here that isn't found everywhere in our country. And I'm so grateful to work in a place where people really care. They care about how we make a product. They care about the materials that go into a product. They care about the sustainability of the manufacturing facility. They care that it's right in their hometown and that is a great place to have a company. I think I remember clearly when I first walked into the doors, you could here the sewing machines and they weren't like your little singer sewing machines, they were the industrial sewing machines, they've got this rattle and hum. And 18 years later if you walk out of my office onto the production floor you're going to hear that same rattle and hum and what's amazing is that some of those people are still running them today. You know you look at the hand craftsmanship of these stuffed toys and you're spooning a little cat nip into them or putting the squeaker inside and hand sewing them closed. That is still happening just as it was back in the day and I think that's what sets our company apart. We have this great legacy but we've developed this incredible business know how to continue to compete globally with a very highly regarded product that's made in the United States. I think all great things come from a great culture. I've seen in those unleashed stores, the community corner and I've seen them providing a space for people who love their pets to congregate and to learn and to share and to laugh. That's a great environment that they've created. Each employee at West Paw Design gets paid time to volunteer and when our employees can really rally around a cause it just unleashes their passions and their potential even more. It's not just one person who works here, it's a team of 70 hard working people that really care.
