The Pets of Druva

The Pets of Druva
2

Is there any better way for a team to bond than to share our experiences with our pets? While we don’t have a “bring your dog to work” day — at least not yet — many Druva employees are cheerfully owned by cats, dogs, and other critters.

Herewith we share just a few of the pets that inspire us to create great software. We think this will start out your day with an Awwwww….

This is Lulu! She’s a chihuahua mix, and is 6 years old.

Dave-and-rudy

This is her brother Rudy; he’s a 3-year-old miniature pinscher mix. Their hobbies include sleeping, barking, and pooping where they aren’t supposed to.

Amruta Phansalkar, Technical Writer

The first photo features Tasha — Amruta’s first canine companion, now 8 years old. Tasha is a crossbreed, with a Cocker Spaniel mother and a Pomeranian daddy. “Tasha is my friend, companion, and the love of my life. It is just amazing to know that you can understand someone without having to express yourself in words.”

Five months ago, Tasha became a mother to Ted, an absolute bundle of joy.

    Don’t tell Meriweather, but Shaka is every bit as cute. On second thought, never mind, because Meriweather won’t care.
