Lucas James (Doodle) Ledbetter
The Self Care Network LLC has promoted Lucas James as the "Head of Mess Development". Lucas is a 1 year old goldendoodle whose favorite job task is pulling every toy out of the toy bin to find the perfect one to play with. After work, he can be found in the kitchen monitoring the floor as his quest to become known as the World’s Hungriest Goldendoodle.
In his free time, Lucas loves to explore the world with his mouth, give kisses, and playing with his friends. As an avid foodie he definitely lives up to his title “Head of Mess Development” even if he is often redirected to drop it, or leave it. When asked how he felt about the promotion, Lucas said " I am excited for the opportunity to tackle any mess that falls on the floor, I have my nose ready to sniff out any spills and I guarentee it will be cleaned up in under 1 minute."
While some applicants require hours of training in order to learn and master the skills it takes to get a job done right, others are born with it. As the head of our cleaning services, every bone on the floor, every spilled glass of water, Lucas will lick it up.
We’re proud to be a group of movers and shakers.
