Working in the family pet supply shop

advertisement | advertise on newsday

My mom and dad own a pet supply store in Medford, Pet Care Depot. We have had the store for seven years. I have a fun time when I go there to help out. My mom does grooming at the store, and she has an assistant named Ashley.

On weekends when I have some free time, I like to go to the store. I have the best time giving dogs baths and cutting their nails. When it is really busy, it is hard for me to help out, but that is the fun of a family business. I also know how to work the register. My mom said I am a natural salesperson. Maybe it is in my blood because my dad and brother are salesmen. We also have cats and tortoises, and one of the tortoises is more than 50 pounds.
