Meet Fairmont Pittsburgh’s Canine Ambassador

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — How much is that doggy in the window?

Forget it.

Edie is gainfully employed as canine ambassador at the Pittsburgh Fairmont.

She even has her own line of greeting cards.

The former stray was taken in by a Cincinnati agency that trains service dogs for people with disabilities.

But hotel PR Director Judy Abramovic says Edie was just too sociable.

“She is very sociable,” she said. “That, in fact, is the reason that she didn’t complete the service program – she was a little bit too friendly, but that works for us at a hotel,” she said.

Julie adopted the boxer-lab mix. But Edie’s family consists of every guest at the Fairmont, including her own species.

“She’s really here to welcome our guests and make them feel at home,” Abramovic said.

“Oftentimes we hear our guests miss their pets when they are traveling. We have a lot of business travelers and you can imagine that’s kind of one of the comforts of home that you miss when you’re on the road.”

Edie enjoys the comforts of home and when her 9-5 shift ends, she goes home with Julie.
