Always getting in trouble with the boss for: Stealing Mom’s hair ties (they taste good) and sneaking in the guest room and jumping in the middle of the pillows to make myself a new bed. 

You'd be surprised to know: I get my name from a ghost shape on my back. I'm scared of thunder, tree frogs and fluffy animals.

Luna

Age: 2 (ish) years 

Human Companion: Laura 

Always getting in trouble with the boss for: Wanting to play while boss is on Skype calls.

Funny story: I was afraid to swim so "boss" encouraged me until my fear was overcome. Now I LOVE to "swim" but, um, can't really swim much. There are lots of cases of "boss" jumping in water to retrieve me. 

Lesson: If dog is reluctant to swim, don't teach them.

Work Schedule: On call 24/7 (but never returns calls)

Favorite thing about coming to work: Belly rubs from my Daddy. 

You'd be surprised to know: I have learned to slow down at mealtime since I was surprised with a puzzle bowl. I have been adapting well to this change, and it has been interesting to see me gain efficiencies in food retrieval techniques such as knocking a full cup of food to the floor and out of server’s hand before it reaches the bowl! #puppystrategy101

Funny story: When we first arrived to Jerry's home as kittens, we found a tiny hole under the lower kitchen cabinets that Jerry was unaware of, and we climbed in. Jerry thought he was going to have to cut a hole in the cabinets to get us out. Even a fresh can of cat food wouldn't entice us to come out. Jerry finally persuaded us out with a can of tuna.
