We all know you can’t keep a good dog down, and Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard’s tiny mascot is no exception. We also know that every good dog has its day, and for Bella, the diminutive toy poodle mix, that’s everyday.
She shows up for work at the boatyard Monday through Friday — freezing cold, rain or snow — with her favorite human, Mike Sandfry, the boatyard’s go-to handyman. She dogs his every step, happily trotting behind him all day as he completes his tasks all over the boatyard.
You might think Bella would get dog-tired and relish the cushy life in the office out of the cold. But she has her sweater and she’s eager for any task outside, as long as it’s with Mike. She watches the door waiting for her best friend to come into the office and scoop her up for more chores on the yard. She is pictured above with Boatyard Manager Mark Lindeman, who, along with office staff Jenn Brown and Cheryl Jones, convinced her to pose for photos.
Watch this space for more on Bella and her best friend, Mike, who is away from work this week.
