If you were just thinking how there aren’t enough places where you can get bargain-priced furniture AND give a dog some ear scratches, then you are in luck.

Estes Park Community Thrift Shop in Estes Park, Colorado, offers low prices on new and used items as well as an opportunity to hang out with the store’s mascot, Wafer the dog.

Wafer is a 2-year-old Labrador Retriever mix who enjoys sleeping in a laundry basket and receiving each scratches from customers. He was adopted from the Denver Dumb Friends League in March of 2016 after being rescued from another shelter in Texas, according to the store’s website.

While he mainly lounges around on the job…

Despite his lack of retail skills, he must be a big hit with customers because his owners had to put a “Not for Sale” sign on his basket awhile back.

If you can’t make it to Colorado to say hi to Wafer, you can follow him on social media. He has his own hashtag: #waferthedog.
