Who let the dogs out?

We did! BTR is going to the dogs today, and we’ve got the inside scoop on some of our employees’ furry friends. These canines have sent their favorite people to the doghouse, and they’ve taken over their positions. What do they have to say for themselves?

lucy  Lucy, Miniature Australian Shepherd, Senior Director of Creative and Production

Age: 5 months old, today! Happy 5 month birthday to me!

Nickname: The Stuffed Toy Destroyer

My favorite past times include chasing my tail and decapitating any stuffed toy in sight (it’s how I earned my nickname). But don’t judge me on that; I’m really just a smart, fun-loving and kind little puppy. I even wake up my mini humans with lots of kisses every morning. I recently enjoyed my first (and probably only) trip to Florida for Spring Break, where I experienced a couple of firsts: grass (awesome), and the ocean’s waves (not so awesome – they were scary!).

Age: 8 years old

Nickname: The Lady

If I had been born human, I would have been born a princess. I know this for a fact because my humans treat me like one, even though I was most certainly born a canine. I enjoy the finer things in life like the smell of coffee, and having free reign of my favorite sofa. My guilty pleasure is that I absolutely adore toilet paper and paper towel rolls. They’re so much fun to play with, despite their origins.

Age: 3 years old

Nickname: The Vacuum Knight

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love all things furry, and if they’re purple, so much the better! I’m definitely a lover not a fighter, and my fur-less buddy knows this. He gives me all the cuddles I could ever want. That being said, the cuddles will end the moment the vacuum comes out. That is my cue to run away as fast as my little legs can take me.

Age: 3 years old

Nickname: The Ladies’ Man

Don’t tell my girlfriend about my nickname. She’s an 80lbs Rottweiler named Nesta. You don’t want to get on her bad side. Part of the reason she likes me is because of my cool fashion sense. That hoodie I’m wearing? It is a total belly rub magnet. If you’re willing to rub my belly, I’ll be on my back in two seconds flat, waiting patiently. If you have some cheddar popcorn, even better!

baxter  Baxter, Yorkie, Content Manager

Age: 1 year old, as of 2 days ago

Nickname: The Little Gentleman

Don’t let my small stature fool you: I’m a little dog with a big dog’s heart. In fact, the small pup stereotype doesn’t apply to me at all. I don’t make a lot of noise, which works out to my advantage when I stalk my prey. My favorite victims are toys the size of field mice. After a hard day of being a ninja blur, I like to be the perfect lap dog. My humans give me lots of cuddles, and my favorite: peanut butter!

bella Bella, Shih Tzu and Yorkie Mix, Assistant Luxury Buyer

Age: 1 year old

Nickname: The 2-Wheel Wonder

If I could choose any song to describe me, it would have to be Queen’s “Bicycle Race”. There is nothing quite like sitting in a bike’s basket with my fur blowing in the wind. I’m not a big fan of the snow; it gets in the way of the tires. My bicycle trips usually end up at the best place in the world: the dog park. My best friend, a cat named Blacky, is completely jealous.

When asked if they would give up their new positions, we were met with a chorus of howls that could only be interpreted as “NO!” Looks like these dogs are here to stay! Shop our Popular Pets event now to see doggie-approved products!
