Company names are chosen for all kinds of reasons. When louie inc was started, we wanted a playful name and a unique design. Louie is a wonderful senior dog with a big personality. He provided a great name and is now creating a great marketing brand. You will find louie in the office napping most of the time. He looks forward to meeting you! He also hopes you have soft treats!
