Texas Lowe's Hires Air Force Vet and His Service Dog



    It's "Bring Your Pet Day," every day at a Texas Lowe's, who hired Air Force veteran Clay Luthy, as well as his service dog, Charlotte, for a job at the home improvement giant. Charlotte, Luthy said, has become a customer favorite just two months into the job. (Published Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016)

    Some customers at a Lowe's store in Texas are getting tag-team assistance from a military veteran and his service dog after both were hired to work at the store.

    The Abilene Reporter-News says U.S. Air Force vet Clay Luthy and his golden retriever, Charlotte, both wear red and blue Lowe's vests to work at the home improvement retailer.

    Luthy has had five surgeries on his knees and can't bend his left leg. Charlotte is trained to help Luthy up, if he can't get off the floor.

    Charlotte has become a customer favorite in her two months on the job.

    While Luthy tells the Reporter-News everyone loves the pooch, he adds, "this definitely was not part of the job description."
