If you are a fan of ours on Facebook, then you most certainly have seen LOTS of Winston pics! All but his first couple months of life, have been spent in our flower shop! He was born June 21, 2003 and we adopted him in August 2003 from Pets Inc. His full name is – “Winston Jefferson Ishmael Abignale Pryor”. We found that we really liked the name “Winston” after visiting “Winston Flowers” in Boston during a trip there to see my brother in early 2000. So, when it came to figuring out his name, that one seemed to fit, especially given the fact that he would be a flower shop dog! As for his other names, they are a combination of character names from different movies. He is a “shop dog” but technically he is only allowed in the shop after hours. He gets a little too excited around other people and isn’t quite calm and relaxed enough to be around customers. As you can see in one of the pictures below, he likes to sneak into the shop sometimes and pretend like he is invisible so we won’t send him back to his cage (especially during storms)! He occasionally gets to go on deliveries, as you will see in this video. He is not fond of the flower barn for some reason (maybe he thinks we will put him to work) but he will stop by to say hello sometimes, as long as it’s a brief visit! During business hours, he spends his days napping and relaxing in his roomy crate behind closed doors and usually stays very quiet. He has quite the personality and has gained several fans over the years! Some very nice people have even brought him gifts. How nice! We sure are glad to have him around and glad that he is part of our family! It might be hard to tell, but he is very camera shy and it usually takes several attempts to get good pictures. We hope you have enjoyed getting to know a little more about Winston. I’m sure he would love for you to leave a comment and say hello!
