Introducing Critter Corner!

This week, we’re introducing a new feature of our blog: “Critter Corner!” Those of you who receive our weekly newsletters will already be familiar with the voices of our many critters at the Farr Law Firm, and we decided to share them on the blog as well. (If you aren’t receiving the newsletter and would like to, please make sure to sign up here. The Farr Law Firm newsletter goes out every Friday morning and features an informative article on estate planning or elder care, information about upcoming seminars, Critter Corner and more.)

The idea for “Critter Corner” came about between Sporty Sport (the resident kitty) lounging around on the front desk welcoming clients to the office, and Chancellor (the office dog) sitting at the feet of his faithful friend Evan during phone calls. The Farr Law Firm has always been pet friendly, and as any other pet owners  know, these little four-legged creatures are full of personality! Starting next week, one of our four office pets will chime in with their two cents on a number of issues in the “Critter Corner” of our blog.

Without further ado, allow me to introduce the “fur, feathers and four-legged things” of the Farr Law Firm!

Our first commentator is Chancellor. Chancellor, as his name suggests, is a dignified West Highland White Terrier (a “Westie”) and the beloved pet of Evan Farr. Chancellor provides the primary entertainment at the Firm with his daily antics of “Crazy Dog”:  running wildly up and down the hall, begging someone to stop drafting documents for a moment and play tag with him, and eventually collapsing in a heap next to Evan’s desk for a well-earned nap. He does his due duty by protecting the Firm from the mailman, but is really just a soft, cuddly, smiley little furball.

Also belonging to Evan is our next commentator, Tiger Lilly. The exotic and beautiful Tiger Lilly is an Australian Bearded Dragon, and the newest resident of the Farr Law Firm.  She is a calm, peaceful, and very docile young lady with beautiful tan patterned skin.  Despite being a reptile, and therefore cold-blooded, Tiger Lilly is “oddly cuddly” – when placed on one’s chest, she likes to climb up and press her face against one’s warm neck.  She loves to lie on her branch and bask in the warming glow of her sunlamp.  Life is good for Tiger Lilly. In fact, she is so lazy that she typically won’t eat unless you take her off her branch and plunk her down directly in front of her food bowl!

Next up we have our fantastic feline – Sporty Sport – a tuxedoed kitty of the finest variety, always in the Christmas spirit (he has one red eye and one green eye!) belonging to our Director of Client Services, Jeannie Caldwell. He was quite literally born in a barn but now thinks of himself as practically human. He eats with his hands, sits propped up on the couch like a human, and enjoys showers, baths and swimming.

Lastly (although probably not for long–the Farr Law Firm is continually growing!) we have our token member of the aviary community – Gidget – the beloved feathered friend of Grace Everitt-Benz , one of our Asset Protection Paralegals. The lovely Gidget is an extremely vocal parakeet in shocking tones of turquoise, black and white. He (yes, Gidget is a boy) enjoys watching “Friends” on television and has learned to mimic the sounds of the laugh track. His favorite thing in the world is the small mirror in his cage, where he spends hours looking at and talking to the other bird that he is so confident is there.

Stay tuned for the first installment of the Critter Corner!
