OUR STORY

 

Bringing Joy to Kids and Pets

Not allowed to have a dog as a kid

 
Steve with Ripley
 



Steve’s two best friends had dogs but he was not able to have a Dog as a child because his dad was allergic to pet hair.





Shortly after getting married Steve convinced his wife to get a puppy and they selected a Golden Retriever and they named it “Ripley” after Ellen Ripley the character in the Alien movies.

Their oldest daughter Peyton then grew up loving her best friend Ripley.



Peyton, now our creative director that came up with all our stories and characters, reading a book with Ripley in 1994.

A favorite memory is when I got home from work each day and all 9 puppies would run all the way across the yard to greet me!
