Charlie “Charleston” Jeanneret
office dog, mascot
Here at Lara J Designs, we just LOVE our little office dog, Charlie. His mommy, Lara, brings him to work with her most every day and he enjoys sleeping in her lap, on the couch, and in his dog bed. He also likes to greet visitors as they enter the Lara J Designs office. Charlie has been a member of the Jeanneret and Lara J Designs family since May 2013 when Lara adopted him from Etowah Valley Humane Society. Charlie gave her one of his famous “pick me up” looks and she was toast. He may be a little spoiled, but he sure is sweet!
