The years have passed by so quickly and we now have many new customers who wonder “Who was Holly and why is she such a big part of Four Seasons and the web site?”
From the day that we bought the store in December of 1995 when Holly was a puppy, she “worked” at the store Tuesday through Friday until the very end. When she heard the buzzer of our door ring, she would go and greet our customers. She would work the room and be with our customers while they were shopping.
She became quite famous and parents would bring their kids in to meet her. She had a great and very gentle disposition that drew customers and their families in from all over the state. There were many sales promotions and events where we ran “Holly-Days” advertisements that were very successful and drew large crowds. Holly t-shirts have become somewhat of a collector’s item!
However, on February 5, 2008 we let our beloved 13 year old Holly go to a better place..
She enjoyed “working the room” when customers would visit and always made everyone smile. She was a great friend and companion.
There will never be another Holly, but “Bella” (a French Bulldog aka “Frenchie”) became a member of our family in October of 2008.
Holly will remain as our store mascot for as long as we own the shop and her images will remain a big part of our web site as well as her Friends of Holly page, which is extremely popular. Please send us a photo of your pet and we’ll add it. (Please send 400×400 pixel images)
Please, see some of the photos of friends that Holly made all over the world!
Thank you again,
Carl and Susie Ingrao

In Memory of Bob Wright
On February 20th we lost our dear friend and co-worker Bob Wright to cancer.
For most of her life, Bob and “Holly” were best buddies. Bob and Bella were getting close but he and Holly had a very special friendship. You could always see them together taking walks outside or hanging out together in Bob’s work area as Holly watched him work.
There is a big void at the shop not seeing Bob every morning.
From all your friends and customers….We all miss you very much Bob.
