Fun Fact:

I was named after Batman’s butler Alfred! 

Atlanta → San Diego

I was born and raised in Atlanta and lived there until I was about 6 months old. Boy that summer was a hot one! My mom had a crazy idea of packing up and moving to sunny San Diego. I got to ride shotgun with my Auntie Jessica as we made that long drive, and I even hiked the rim of the Grand Canyon on the way (I’m small but that’s me in mom’s arms)! 

Office dogs do a lot more than sit around the office.

As soon as I got to my new home and felt that cool ocean breeze on my whiskers I decided my mom wasn’t quite so crazy. I got a little excited our first trip to the beach and ended up getting so much sand in my eyes! I’m still not so sure about swimming in those ocean waves... maybe if mom buys me a wetsuit for my birthday (hint hint).

Finding My Way

After enjoying my first year and a half in San Diego as a stay at home dog, I decided it was time to bring home the bacon and get myself a job.

Pets from PetDesk don't always need a desk.

I submitted lots of applications, but unfortunately I was missing some credentials and didn’t get too many offers. Luckily my mom had a great idea! She found a company that would let her bring me to work with her. I am so thankful to get to come to PetDesk everyday and help motivate everyone (or provide the much needed pet breaks).

Life at PetDesk

We work really hard at PetDesk; but we play hard too! I like to greet my fellow canine co-workers with my loud bark and make sure everyone is awake in the office. I don’t mean to scare anyone... but I get so excited!!

My mom dressed me up as a grumpy old man for Halloween, but there’s nothing grumpy about me!!

Costumes for office dogs are always encouraged.

Check out some of my awesome co-workers!

Double trouble on the PetDesk sales team

Luna and I love to play with my gerbil toy!

Sit, stay, play - PetDesk!

Abigail isn’t sure about sharing a chair with me... but she does like eating my food!

Working at PetDesk sure is fun!

I love coming to work everyday. But there is one thing I love even more than that -- getting home, taking my collar off, and snoozing on my pillow. Speaking of going home it’s about that time; hope you guys enjoyed reading about me!
