|Iberia is staying in town, but they closed their|
branch near us, a majestic building with little traffic.
Sassy had two favorite tellers at the Iberia Bank drive-through. She learned that a sharp bark into the speaker reminded her staff to include treats for her. I thought one new person would get angry, but he smiled and gave her three different treats, saying, "She is a smart dog."
Her favorite was a lady we knew from the day we moved in. She was also good for three treats for each stop, every time. She spoke to Sassy and got an enthusiastic response.
Mary was there when I walked in for the last visit today. The branch closed at 6 PM. We were both sorry to see this happen. I said, "I didn't bring Sassy along because she had the last treat on Saturday."
Mary said, "Let me check." She grabbed a bank envelope and stuffed it with dog treats.
Sassy will be glad to hear Iberia thought of her. Everyone wants to give her treats. When we see her favorite Army veteran, he says, "Sassy, you must be out of treats. I will buy you some more." She sings, "Ah woo woo woo," as he pets and praises her.
