True Tales: Bentley (the Dog) Acts Badly

Published

on

I always bring my Shih-Tzu, Bentley, to work with me. My clients love him. He is always so friendly and makes them feel welcome. Well, one day this couple brought their son, who looked to be about 6 years old, into the store. We are sitting there and I’m trying to sell them wedding bands and my darling dog Bentley hops up on their son’s leg and starts humping away! The little boy doesn’t know what he’s doing and just bursts into laughter. My face was bright red! The couple was trying to keep a straight face because I’m sure they didn’t want to get into a discussion of the birds and the bees. After a struggle, the mother managed to get Bentley off his leg and well, he just jumped up again and kept going at it. The fiancé finally said, “Well, we might as well let him finish.” They still bought the wedding bands from me.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
