You may have seen Replacements, Ltd.'s
print ads in the back of PARADE magazine (of Howard Huge
fame). Replacements, both a seller and a resource
for china and glassware owners, was one of the few North Carolina businesses to publicly take a stand
[NYT] against the state's vote to ban gay marriage.
As an employer, Replacements is one of only nine companies in the country to receive a perfect score
for ten years straight in the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index. But the company is also known for another surprisingly liberal policy: encouraging its 450 employees to bring their pets to work amidst millions of pieces of china and glassware. How many? A whole lot. [more inside]

Dog vs. Rattlesnake
. Dog loses. But there is hope
for other dogs. "At home, I lit candles in prayer, pleading to the universe that she would make it. I slept fitfully, realizing that this was her battle. I couldn’t will her to survive. Even so, I offered a psychic bargaining chip, promising her a trip to the ocean, which she had never seen, if she pulled through this." And, she did.
