Disabled Vet Couldn’t Find Work Because of His Service Dog So Lowe’s Hired Them Both

(CNN) Getting a job these days is tough enough. Getting a job for you and your service animal? It’s as hard as it sounds. But Clay Luthy did it. Luthy, a disabled Air Force vet, had been struggling to find work since he needed his service animal, a dog named Charlotte, to be with him. But he got hired for a part-time job at a Lowe’s in Abilene, Texas. Hiring Luthy meant Lowe’s was also hiring Charlotte. “We were interviewing people for his position. And he was one of the applicants. And so he showed up for the interview and he had Charlotte with him,” Jay Fellers, a human resource manager at Lowes, told CNN affiliate KRBC. Fellers said Charlotte — who wears her own Lowe’s vest while on duty — has been a hit with customers.

Charlotte’s a hit with customers? Ya think? She is a dog, you know. And Lowe’s clearly understands a couple things those other idiot businesses that wouldn’t hire Clay and Charlotte don’t understand. #1, dogs make everything better and can only help business, and #2, always hire somebody who has a dog over somebody who doesn’t. That’s just science, man.

Kudos to Lowe’s!


Gimme a holler.
