For National Pet Day we wanted to highlight some of Altvia’s furry friends. They help us get our work done and stay motivated.
Name: Lucca and Baily
Favorite activity: Having a catch with their favorite tennis ball and tug of rope
Bio: Hello. This is Lucca and Baily. We are the best and there is no doubting that. If you do, we have a problem. Just kidding but please give us both many pets, treats, and all the attention. That makes us happy
Favorite activity: Digging an elaborate tunnel system under the back yard.
Bio: I’m an old man now. I still enjoy chasing after a ball and deciding not to give it back to Carter to throw again, but these days I equally enjoy a long nap on a stack of freshly laundered blankets. Carter and I have been through a lot and we are definitely each others’ best friend. I wish he’d stop hiding joint vitamins in my food though.
Name: Beckham (his mom’s name was Spice and we love soccer…you get the connection)
Favorite activity: Sleeping and walks
Bio: I’m a total prima donna who likes soft blankets, fluffy pillows, pillow top beds and hard-boiled eggs. In the mornings, I protect our backyard from the coyotes in the area but other than that, it’s sleep and eat until my family takes me on a walk.
Favorite activity: Sleeping
Bio: I grew up on a farm in Golden, and life has been good. I enjoy eating carrots, radishes, and peppermints. Most of my days are spent sleeping and eating the wood from the fence like a beaver.
Favorite activity: Hiking – a true colorado pup
Bio: I’m Lego, and I just turned 1! I’m happiest when I’m with my friends at the dog park, hiking in the mountains, or playing in the snow. Like any covid pup, I prefer my humans to be with me 24/7 and am a huge proponent of WFH.
Favorite activity: Watching his Southern Charm namesake — Shep Rose
Bio: My name is Shep after Shep Rose on Southern Charm. I love watching Bravo with my mom, chewing toys to oblivion, and eating as much people food as my family will give me.
Favorite activity: Eating (though she has no teeth so licking food sums it up better.)
Bio: Greeting tall ones. I am an old lady Chiweenie. Everything freaks me out except the fireplace, my bed, and the giant human that feeds me. The grey-haired lady (who loved the cat best and I know it) I could take or leave, though she does feed me sometimes too. Maybe if we added a few more kittens to the household we would all be happier… WAIT I DID NOT SAY THAT! WHO’S TYPING THIS!
Favorite activity: Going to the dog park
Bio: Hi! My name is Jafa Zarkovic and I am a 1.5 years old. I’m quite the mixed dog- pit bull terrier, husky, akita and a couple more. What you may not know about me is that my name comes from my parent’s favorite Serbian cake, it was even their wedding cake! I like to spend my days running around with friends at daycare, going on walks with my family, and getting to know my new little human brother, Luka. You can usually find me watching the backyard or cuddling up with my humans.
Favorite activity: Visiting the neighbors
Bio: Eight years ago I was found in Bakersfield, CA. Luckily, my mom adopted me and I got to grow up going to work with her in big building in San Francisco. Everyone at the big building loved me! I was the boss! Now I live in Colorado. It’s a lot colder here but I’ve gotten used to the snow. I prefer to lay on the couch by the fire though. I get to go into the office at Altvia and I think I’m the boss there too.
Favorite activity: Giving Mouse “gifts” to my mom
Bio: I’m Nathan. I was rescued from Oklahoma where a nice lady found me out in the rain. I like to roam around the neighborhood and all the neighbors like me. They call me Gangsta-Nate… I “take care” of all the mice in the neighborhood. I’m a friendly boy and I like playing with all the foster puppies that visit our house. I try to play with my doggie sister but she seems annoyed. I like cuddling with my mom.
Name: Breck & Cooper Pearson
Favorite activity: Playing fetch and sneaking treats
Bio: Breck (right) and Cooper (left) are a great pair. The retriever bros are a nice balance between sweet and salty. Breck has an abundance of energy while Cooper prefers a nap and cuddles all day. The boys enjoy quarantine and spending quality time with mom, but they really miss going to the office and seeing all their Altvia friends.
Favorite activity: Playing/Sleeping
Bio: My name is Jagger and I am a 1 year old Frenchie who’s looking for love. I help protect the neighborhood and love to eat chicken and play all day!
Favorite activity: Making Zoom meeting appearances
Bio: Hey Friends, do you have anything I could chew on and/or destroy? Don’t listen to Tyler, I’m not as “chonky” as he claims.
Name: Stanley Cup and Silky Mitts
Favorite activity: Sleeping
Bio: My name is Stan. I had a good life spending most of my days asleep. And then my people brought this little demon named Mittsy home.
