Well today's my first day back in this building since the collapse.
Like a little overcome with emotion because.
This is such a huge part of my life and it was this was my dream job was sort care Fox News so.

But they they need so much care -- hates it's it's a huge responsibility having.
3040 dogs in your care we have great staff but.
Didn't the main goal is for all these -- to leave our building see if not harmed and happy so I'm so focused on that every single day that I kind of forgot that it -- at the very clear.
But it that I that I'm thrilled that I said -- yeah I think everyone -- -- talking with our guest earlier about when you look at staffing and payroll issues.
Trying to find that balance between having enough staff so that you're -- losing money managers.
You know spreading yourself -- ended -- not having so many people that.
You're overpaying -- hadn't you guys figure that haven't they said.
That's say you know that's the unknown battle with with the new business and in the what's coming in going out but being hit.
The facility that takes care of animals we can't be understaffed society.
You know if if my payrolls little -- that month that is what it is because those dogs -- being taken care of you can't even dog and intended.
They just doesn't work like that so.
You know for me.
I always have one extra person just in case just in case of -- SE go to the bathroom or so I have to -- cut overstaffed so.
That question is a great question but ditches for my business I always have them you know -- -- hundred.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The plan for emergencies.
It's -- they say that rainy days are probably one of our busiest days.
You gotta put on attended -- -- remained animal letting them come in suddenly on the -- so let's.
-- -- -- to find someone who wants to go in the middle of the grain market does -- how do you find the right people that not only want to do this job.
But skills to do we've gone through our -- and you we've gone through.
A few people that.
Don't realize that it's just -- -- we're gonna have it exactly like that it is hard work here monitoring.
Animals that are unpredictable.
And that when they're home alone in their environment they could be a completely different -- them when they're in a pack setting a date with with.
Not for their owners -- -- -- a -- Because so we've we've gone through some people that.
Realized -- -- wait we're not just playing with little keep your -- all day long where we've got you know people ask me if they got it exactly.
So we've sort of been -- those people out fairly early on and we've we've.
Gotten down to -- course staff of true animal lovers and that tax that is they're so.
I'm mark as the guys out there we we say that the requirements.

Or somebody that volunteered.
An animal shelter not somebody that just had dog growing up somebody that I.
Specifically my that's -- -- that people really I was isn't just like.
I think -- yeah we learned that in the beginning that we needed to.
