Happy Friday, everypawdy! Know what else there is to be happy about?? It's National Puppy Day!
We celebrate puppies every day here at Dogster, but to make today extra special, let's take a walk down memory lane and check out some of SAY Media's office dogs when they were jusssttt pups.
Recognize this little gal? You might have seen her cameo on The Dog Show,
or maybe you've spotted her zooming around Fort Funston. This is Top Dog Ted Rheingold's pooch! She likes giving kisses, chicken livers, and giving kisses.
You may also recognize this dashing fellow. He was made famous by this beautiful video
, and has found more work as head treat taster in the first episode of The Dog Show
. Moxie enjoys chasing around flying monkey toys, peeing in his litter box (no SRSLY), and stealing Janine's panties. BAD MOXIE!
No need to reminisce -- Moxie is still this big! Noticing a weird trend with names here? These pups were all named Moxie independently of one another. Kooky, huh? Moxie is 110 percent puppy from her tiny little bark to her pointy little razor teeth. She enjoys being ridiculously adorable and dropping office productivity to an all-time low.
Do you die? Contrary to popular belief, Boogaloo is NOT part micropig, although he does now somewhat resemble a pot roast. Boogs is probably the most beautiful Frenchie you'll ever see. He enjoys eating, eating, and snuggling. Probably in that order.
Is that a bowl of Cookies & Cream? Wait a tic -- that's Miss Bailey, the queen of naps. D'aww! Look at this adorable speckled ball of perfection!
Don't let his size fool you -- this pup has a whole lot of attitude! Unlike most of the office pooches (no offense, dawgs), Rudy won't sell out for a mere milkbone. This feisty little dude is loyal to his main man, Steve, so he makes the rest of us work for his affection.
This pooch is just like a super adorable Yorkie that you want to smuggle home in your laptop case (wait, that is exactly what she is), except she has ginormous bat ears that make her even cuter! Zoe enjoys taking meticulous care of her silky coat, a nice glass of red, and socializing with her friends. She can be spotted at the hottest SF clubs with her BFF and confidant, GiGi.
Ever wonder what our resident Love & Relationship Guru (check out her column here
) looked like as a puppy? GiGi likes to remain very mysterious about her past, but we were able to scrounge this photo up from the Ellis Island database. Every office has its queen bee and folks, you're looking at it. GiGi rules this office with an iron paw. She enjoys treats, popping the eyes out of anything stuffed, and riding the elevator by herself in our three-story office building.
I hope we inspired you to dig out your own pup's cute baby pictures! Tell us how you're celebrating National Puppy Day in the comments. Stay tuned for the Where Are They Now addition of Dogs in SAY Media's office!
