SELKIRK, Canada — At least one Canadian CU has really begun to go to the dogs, according to the Winnipeg Sun.
The paper has reported that the South Interlake Credit Union has employed Takoda, a 13 week old St. Bernard as a Director of Greetings, or DOG.
Takoda has already been a fixture in CUs main branch for about a month on a probationary period while she is trained, according to the CU’s staff. She goes home every night and on weekends with a different member of the staff, the CU said.
“We thought a dog would bring a unique and fun aspect to the branch,” Vanessa Foster, SICU’s marketing and communications director is quoted as saying.
