SCOTTeVEST Loves Dogs
At SCOTTeVEST, our love of dogs permeates everything we do. We think you can tell a lot about a person by the way they treat animals, which is one reason why co-founders Laura and Scott Jordan have integrated their love of dogs into our company culture. We have a dog-friendly workplace that includes professional dog walkers who take our employee’s canines outside for exercise; we name multiple garments after our dogs and pay the fees for any employee who wants to adopt a dog. We also take pride in supporting various animal and dog-related charities.
Scott’s love of dogs stems from his childhood, when ongoing family issues left him no one to confide in other than Kelly, his Toy Poodle. Additionally, Laura feels a stronger connection to dogs than most people due to dogs' logical and rational personalities.
Together, the Jordans have had six standard poodles in their lives since starting the company, but the office dogs don’t stop there! Get to know the SCOTTeVEST dogs below:
Susie is a Standard Poodle born in 2011 and is the middle child of the Jordan Poodle Gang. According to Scott, Susie has a severe case of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) and always wants to be involved with every activity. After work and on the weekends you can find Susie hiking with the Jordan family or lounging around their house.
Chloe is a Standard Poodle born in 2004 and is the alpha dog of the Jordan Poodle Gang. Although Chloe is in charge, she is a huge prankster and enjoys playing tricks on her sisters as well as Laura and Scott. When not keeping her sisters in line, Chloe enjoys hiking with the Jordan family and hanging out on the sundeck.
Margaux is a Standard Poodle born in 2004, who recently became blind and deaf due to an autoimmune disease she’s battled for the last 3 years. Her nickname is The Awesome and Amazing Margaux thanks to her inspiring nature and persistent attitude to learn something new every day. She loves to dance to Stevie Wonder’s “Sir Duke” (even though she can’t hear it) and going on hikes with the Jordan family. You can follow her progress learning how to adapt to being blind and deaf here. #RootForMargaux
Rhonda! is a Standard Poodle born in 2015 and is the baby of the Jordan Poodle Gang. She’s the only poodle of the bunch likes to swim and is learning to be an expert frisbee catcher. Lovingly referred to as “Imitation Chloe,” you can find Rhonda! on hikes with the Jordan family or playing with her friend Karlie on the third floor.
Karlie Kloss (the dog) is a sweet Australian Shepherd mix adopted from the Wood River Valley Animal Shelter by Executive Marketing Coordinator Kate Westerhout. She was born in 2015 and is the troublemaker of the third floor. Some of her hobbies include playing with her best friend Rhonda, playing fetch, listening to Taylor Swift music and chewing on her own arms and feet.
Spencer is a Border Collie who was born in 2013. He was rescued from the street and adopted by Customer Service Director Maggie Cummings on Christmas Day in 2014. He loves to splash around and get wet - whether it’s in lakes, rivers, the pool, puddles, or his own water bowl. According to Maggie, he’s the fastest dog alive with very strong herding instincts. During the afternoons, he can be found dancing with Maggie on the first floor.
Penny is a Pit Bull mix born in 2010 who loves to play tug of war with Customer Service Agent Jim Doolittle. On the weekends Jim and Penny go on adventures where she attempts to eat woodland creatures (unsuccessfully) and continue her strange fascination with cows.
Mayhem is a St. Bernard-Border Collie mix born in 2011 who was adopted from the West Valley Human Society by COO Marshall Rule and his wife Kelsey Bates. He is addicted to toys and can't sleep without one next to him. When not slobbering all over his precious toys, Mayhem can be found playing fetch, going for walks, or dreaming of his next toy.
Maddie is a Lab-Border Collie mix born in 2010 who was adopted at 16 weeks old by COO Marshall Rule and his wife Kelsey Bates. She was given a new chance at life after Marshall and Kelsey found her abandoned in a Walmart shopping cart in the middle of the night. Maddie loves barking at skunks, catching flies, and snuggling with her family.
Hemi is a Australian Shepard- Border Collie mix. He was adopted in 2014 by Customer Service Representative Kendra from the Central Oregon Humane Society. It is a guessing game at how old he is, but we are currently going with 7. He loves to run outside and frolicking around showing off his toys, but most of all he loves to be pet! While indoors, Hemi spends his time pulling every toy out of his box, right after you pick all of them up or laying in the sun, staring outside longingly!
Maebe is Marshall's and Kelsey's third dog. She is a Husky/Lab Mix and was born in January of 2017. Named as a reference to the TV Show "Arrested Development", she follows Marshall to the freezer every time he grabs a drink so that she can get her favorite treat - an ice cube. Maebe is desperately trying to assert her dominance over her much bigger brother and sister (something that is working a little too well).
After going blind and deaf from an autoimmune disease on August 4, 2016, Margaux continues to push forward everyday with the help of her three sisters, who protect her and serve as her seeing eye companions, allowing her to continue to hike the Idaho trails that she loves so much.
