Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday; Jan. 27, 2010 13B J Fur, fishing and fun go together at Indian Valley Pet SupplyI BUSINESS INDIAN VALLEY PET SUPPLY Alicia Knadler Indian Valley Editor Jan and Nancy Francine opened Indian Valley Pet Sup: ply in Greenville right in the midst of a crashed economy, but thanks to those who shop locally, they have made it through their first 18 months. That is a good thing, because Jan sure loves being able to go out fly-fishing when he's not holding down the shop. Those who ask about the feathered little wooly worm dangling.from his bulletin board will be regaled by a story about the granddaddy of all trout--the one that was two to three times the size of any his professional fishing friend has ever caught--and caught in a local body of water. He's caught m~ny other trout since then, and since the fly was amazingly intact after all those fish, he decided it needed to hang in a place of honor. The Francines moved to In: dian Valley from northern Santa Barbara, where they both worked on Vandenberg Air Force Base. They sent r6sum6s out all over, to places where they could buy a horse property. They found a perfect fit in Indian Valley, where they now live with their three Morgan horses, two Great Pyrenees, a Lab-border collie mix trail dog and six rescue cats--two of which they adopted when an neighbor abandoned them. Their oldest Great Pyrenees is 14, a great age for such a large dog, and the Francines credit the quality foods they've fed him his whole life. Educating others about the importance of quality ingredi- ents is one of the things Jan likes most about working in the pet supply business. Jon Francin.e's oldest Great Pyrenees is 14, thanks, he says, to a diet of good quality dog food. He enjoys sharing his dog and fishing stories and his knowledge about how to read the labels on pet food to determine if its the right food for his four- legged companions. Photo by Valorie Chisholm "People are surprised by the ingredients after I show them how to read the labels," he said. "There are not nearly so many vet visits if pets are raised on good quality foods." Their other Great Pyrenees is two. "He's a hairy beast," Jan said of Bjorn. From onebrushing of his coat, Jan saved so much fluff, he was able to have a warm winter scarf made for his wife. Local textile artisan Cheryl Flint spun the fluff in- to luxuriously soft yarn and then knitted it. There's a little ball of it left, and Jan keeps it on the counter at the shop. Those who haven't met the Francines yet might like to stop by and visit. Nancy works most days for the Forest Service, while Jan holds down the shop and partic- ipates in the business commu- nity as treasurer of the Indian Valley Chamberof Commel:ce. He will be the bartender at the annual Crab Crack and Auctior~ Saturday, Feb. 27, an annual event hosted by the chamber.
