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….
David Stoltenberg, Web Designer
This is Lulu! She’s a chihuahua mix, and is 6 years old.
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.
Pronoy Banerjee, Support Engineer
Maffy is a rescued mixed breed dalmatian. She’s 6 and a half years old now.
Katrina Azucena, Events Manager
Roscoe, a, French Bulldog – Boston Terrier mix, is 6 years old.
Sarah Beaudoin, Media and Analyst Relations Manager
Here’s Rocky, 6 years old, and a thoroughbred. Trivia: he was a racehorse and he’s Canadian. His real name is Rockport Missile but that’s only for “official” purposes!
Alexandra Call, Technology Consultant
Wolfe is a 13-year-old Wolfesable Pomeranian.
Piyush Lal, Technical Support Engineer
Piyush is pictured here with his three German Shepherds: (left to right) Dexter, 1 year old; Max, 1.5 years; and Oblix, 11 months.
Ellis Luk, Social Marketing Manager
Moosie is a French Bulldog who’s 4 years old. She dislikes taking photos, enjoys chasing reflections, and farts a lot.
Jennifer Schneider, Staff Accountant
Jac Daniels, who turned 11 in June, is a Scottish Fold, but did not get the folded ears. She used to play catch, but now she just catches and doesn’t return because she’s lazy. She drools a lot when she’s happy.
Gautam Khadse, Customer Account Manager
Gautam is shown here with dachshunds Coco (1.5 years old) , Mojo (1.5), and Bongo (the black one, 6 months old).
Esther Schindler, Blog Editor
Esther Schindler is at the beck and call of Meriwether, a Selkirk Rex cat (a relatively new breed that’s long-haired and curly… like his owner). His cousin Shaka is hiding out, as usual.
Karen Ambrose Hickey, senior marketing manager
Karen’s doing her best to keep Socks and Cinnamon — sister and brother — from knowing where the tuna fish is kept.
Leo, the destroyer. No toy has ever lasted him more than an hour. He’s a 4-year old, retriever-hound-pit mix.
Vishal A. Ekhe, QA Lead
