The Dogs of Freres Lumber Company

June 19, 2017

Ever since our business began nearly a hundred years ago, our canine pals have been a constant presence at Freres Lumber Company. In honor of National Bring Your Pet to Work Day on June 23rd, we want to share our canine family with you with a few photos.

Kyle Freres, Vice President, with his two dogs, Chase, age 3, and Lewis, age 10. Both are rescue dogs of mixed breeds.

Ron Borish, a Freres forester, and his Australian Shepard Rosie, love spending time outside together. She believes she’s the luckiest dog in the world when she joins him on hikes together and on the job at our logging camps, as shed did in this photo taken at our Camp 6 timber sale.
