In The Studio | You didn't think we'd forget about Sloane did you?! For our final team introduction, we're sharing our interview with a vital member of our crew here at Ron Brenner Architects — Sloane! Scroll down for the official interview.
Name? Sloane Doggie Schuettpelz Role at RBA? Studio dog, morale booster, client greeter.
Where did you grow up?
Denver, Colorado. I spent the first six years of my life as a mountain doggo chasing my humans on skis in the winter and up mountains in the summer. I even wore my own backpack!
What was your first job?
I was a Shop Dog at an outdoor retailer in Denver where I acquired belly rubs, sniffed other mountain doggos, and napped in display tents.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Beating cancer three years ago. My mom and dad said I had something called squamous cell carcinoma. I had surgery to remove the icky bump in my mouth. I may have lost a few teeth and some of my jaw but it hasn’t stopped me from eating all the food.
What is your favorite place in the world?
Wherever my little boy is. He feeds me cereal and leaves a trail of cracker crumbs.
What is at the top of your bucket list?
Eating an entire jar of peanut butter.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Peanut butter, obviously. And rummaging through Ron’s garbage can for Wendy’s wrappers.
Do you have a hidden talent?
Lots of them! I am really good at shredding paper — junk mail, wrapping paper, magazines. They don’t stand a chance. I can walk R-E-A-L-L-Y slow. I’m able to take up my humans’ entire bed but also sleep in ridiculously small spaces. I’m an expert at cleaning out empty peanut butter jars. They’re spotless when they go in the recycling can. And, my mom says she could stuff a pillow with my hair every time she brushes me.
If you had to give your vehicle a name, what would it be?
“Ms. Molasses.” I’m pretty slow these days.
What would the title of your autobiography be?
“Eat. Sleep. Repeat.”
What single thing could you simply not live without?
My humans. Sometimes I’m irritated that we’re off on an adventure but being left behind is so much worse.
Which celebrity would you most like to have dinner with?
Garfield. He may be a cat but I understand him.
What’s one family tradition you have passed down to your kids or would like to?
Being a friend to everyone!
What is the best concert you have ever been to?
I’ve never been to an actual concert but my humans play a lot of music. It didn’t bother me when I was young but I’m no longer a fan of loud noises.
What has been the best day of your life so far?
The first snowfall of the year gets me moving at a quicker-than-usual pace. I was thrilled when I got a fenced backyard. It’s always a good day when my little boy finds me a big stick, gets into the treat cupboard, or drops me a wedge of waffle. I love my daily neighborhood walks, snoozing by the campfire, and car rides (okay not so much car rides). I even get to go to work everyday though I’m not sure why they call it 'work'. All I do is nap. I guess every day is the best day of my life as long as I’m with my humans.
