Our Mascot Freddie's -- & Misty! -- Blog
Blog from the office of: FRED!
As ARP's official Mascot, I am very
pleased to announce my new buddy Misty! Misty was a rescue like I
was, and she's so glad to join our family! She's a lot like me, but
as a girl she has a little girlie whimper, but surprisingly her ears and
her man-sized paws are even bigger than mine! And THAT's saying something!
Enjoy our pictures at work, home, and
most importantly, resting....Now if you'll excuse me, I smell
something yummy in the kitchen and, being a Basset Hound, feel it's my
duty to investigate, beg & devour!
Hello to all my fans out there!
Allow me to introduce myself -- I am
Freddie, also known as Fabulous Fred, Fast Fred, and previously Fat Fred!
I am a 47 lb Basset Hound and I am American Recycled Plastic's new
I say new because I'm replacing my best
friend, Gino -- click here to view Gino's Page
-- Gino went to Rainbow Bridge last fall, and we were all very sad.
But I cherish my memories of my time with Gino, and I'm glad he doesn't
If you're wondering how I came to be a
Mascot, here's my story --
In October of 2006 a bad thing happened
to me and my sister Ethel. We were abandoned in an empty house and
were found by a Realtor, who brought us to the Brevard County South Animal
Shelter. A reporter from the newspaper came to take our picture.
Ethel was adopted that day and I spend the night at the Shelter.
When the shelter opened in the morning, SIX people were waiting to adopt
me! Only one of them, though, knew how the Shelter worked -- and
that was Mike Hazlett.....he went to get me right away, and then he took
me up to the front counter to fill out the paperwork! He saw my
picture in the paper and decided to get me as a surprise gift for Amy, my
Boy was she surprised! I nearly
knocked her over I was so excited and happy! The rest is history...I
am now an official Hazlett family member and I am so loved by both my home
and work families! At home I get to play with Mike, Amy, Mikey,
Marshall and Mandy (and I like to chase our cats Cashew, Cassie and
Chloe!), and at work I love to visit each one of my work family! I
like to sit on the office chairs while people work inside (Marilyn's chair
is my favorite!) and I also like to visit Kevin in the warehouse and run
around the yard!
Here's some pictures of me. I'm
sure you'll see why I'm such a Star -- I'm a very handsome dog, I must
