Welcome Painted Dog’s Newest Team Member!

June 30, 2015

It is with sadness and regret that we were forced to say goodbye to our long and faithful companion Ms Saeco earlier this week.

It was 7 years ago that she first entered our lives, and on arrival immediately brought joy and a new buzz to the Painted Dog office.   During her time here, she made a huge impact – loved by staff, admired by clients and enjoyed by all.  Those who worked with her will know she was very switched-on and had a very strong work ethic – one of the first to arrive and the last to leave each day.   Sure she had her ups and downs – bitter moments, sweet moments, and her steamy personality was quick to scald if not handled with care.  But the liquid gold she delivered every day was unmistakable genius.

While her health started to suffer in the later years, constantly thirsty and needing to be changed regularly, she rarely failed in her duties.  But early on Monday it all took a turn for the worse.  After losing consciousness, she was rushed to the Segafreddo emergency room, but despite their best efforts, it was lights out for Ms Saeco.

While Ms Saeco is by no means replaceable, and will certainly hold a special place in our hearts forever, the reality is that her role at PDR must be filled.  As such, we would like you to warmly welcome her replacement which joined our team on Friday – Mr Saeco.   This is his very first job, and while unproven at this stage, has all the hallmarks of a future valuable team member.  He will never need water filling, can hold one kilo of coffee,  has the capability of carrying forty used coffee biscuits before needing to be emptied, and comes with his own fridge allowing him to store up to 4 litres of milk.

We wish Mr Saeco a long and healthy future at Painted Dog!
