Take your dog to work day is today, June 22, but we at Dynadot have to ask, "why bring your dog to work just one day a year?" According to a Virginia Commonwealth University study, bringing your dog to work reduces the stress of the owner and increases the job satisfaction of all employees. It is a win-win situation for everyone and Dynadot is proud to be a dog friendly office.
We are lucky enough to have three awesome "dynadogs" that frequent our office. Now, meet the lovely ladies of Dynadot!
Hi I'm Gracie and I'm a 5-year-old Yorkie Pomeranian mix who loves jerky bites. I am the guard dog here at Dynadot HQ. My daily duties include taking attendance, announcing the mail, and scaring the water delivery man. On my days off I love laying in sunbeams, going to the beach, and snuggling with my humans. Follow me on twitter for my latest Dynadot HQ updates: @Gracie_Dynadog.
Hi I'm Leela and I'm a pit bull mix that ended up at the Contra Costa County Animal Shelter. I came in as a stray at about 2 years old and I used to be named Pepper. When my fur-dad met me, we hit if off instantly and I was already willing to do commands for him such as sit and lay down. After I settled into my new home, I quickly learned new commands including stay, high five, touch, and dead dog. I love eating, sleeping, going for walks, chew toys, and cardboard boxes. One of my favorite activities is coming to the Dynadot office. The first thing I do is run around at full speed greeting everyone!
Hi I'm Foxy Brown and I'm a furry Chihuahua, maybe Papillion "ninja." I'm four years old and I like people and food and belly rubs! I especially like people who rub my belly while giving me food. If you have food, then you are my new favorite person and I want to meet you! I love coming in to the Dynadot office because I get tons of belly rubs from all the employees.
