We’ve said our goodbyes to the Fairmont’s canine ambassador, now she presents her final message to us.

Edie, the beloved canine ambassador at the Fairmont Pittsburgh Hotel, left work for the last time on Thursday.

Our cover dog from our July Best of the Burgh issue (she won our Best Office Dog designation) was well loved in Pittsburgh, and she seems to have loved us right back:

“When I arrived in Pittsburgh back in 2011, I was a little unsure of my new home … But despite those buses and crazy Steelers fans, it didn’t take long for me to realize that I had found my way to a very special place,” she said in a farewell post on her own Facebook page on Thursday. 

“My coworkers, hotel guests, visitors, and just about every Pittsburgher I encounter welcomed me with open paws from the very beginning. I will carry that same Pittsburgh spirit with me to the West Coast,” she posted.

Edie is moving to California with her owner, Fairmont public relations manager Julie Abramovic Kunes, who has accepted a position with a Fairmont hotel in Berkeley.
