Brittony

The second contribution to our new feature on LBM yard pets is Brittony, a 700-pound, 1 1/2-year-old Yorkshire pig who lives at the Britton's lumberyard in Taftsville, Vt. She's pictured here with, from left, yardman/driver Tom Beloin, store owner Lenny Britton, inside salesman/purchasing manager Duncan Brettell, and HR/finance director Lori Rogers. "People love to see Brittony and feed her treats, especially kids," Lenny told ProSales. "As a customer said to us one day, 'That's something you don't see at Home Depot!'" Before Brittony, the dealership had a Rhode Island Red rooster who was so territorial he'd chase customers off the yard. Brittony takes umbrage only when you fail to say hello to her and/or scratch her ears when you pass by.
