Tibi Founder & Creative Director Amy Smilovic and her toy poodle, Jack
"Jack loves all of the attention he gets from everyone in the office and we all take turns playing with him—he has so much energy! He loves to sit on Liz’s desk with her while she works and greet any visitors we have."
Buddha and Gypsy from Toms
"Buddha has figured out that my office is a bit of a safe zone and he knows where all the other dogs sit through the office. So, when he's in the office, he'll sneak out, steal bones and toys from the other dogs and stash them in my office in a giant pile! We definitely owe some of the staff new toys for their dogs. Gypsy, on the other hand, will do anything her brother does and is constantly following him around."
Marcello from Jim Villa Showroom
"Marcello's favorite designers are Plein Sud and Delpozo. His nickname is "Muppet" and "Mr. Muppet" when he's in trouble. He's super friendly, especially with the ladies, and slightly OCD with the ball—we all have to hide it sometimes, because he will go from office cubical to cubical waiting for someone to throw it! Or, he will sit there and make funny little noises that actually sound a little a kitten meowing which is weird and cute. I've found him on counter tops, in women's hand bags, on my desk, in my drawer, all in search of this BALL! All over he is the quintessential Italian gigolo as he woes women all over the world... even clients that are NOT dog people have ended up in love with him and they have pictures of him on their screensavers!"
Lolli from Starworks PR
"Lolli was adopted from Animal Haven—a shelter on Centre street—this summer. Even though she's a large dog she thinks she is little and tries to sit on everyone’s lap. Lolli likes to run around and greet everyone by jumping on them and giving kisses."
Duncan from Tibi
"When I bring Duncan to the office it’s like having a shadow all day, he follows me everywhere! He loves to nap under my desk, unless he hears a messenger—then he goes running for the door!—and he harasses everyone for food during lunch time."
Sammy from Costello Tagliapietra
"Sammy loves coming to the office but at twelve years old he spends most of his time now asleep, though for years he was sure that the interns and assistants were only there to be his playmates. When he is up we have to play his favorite music, Vince Guaraldi… so it is always Christmastime at the studio and the one thing Sammy can’t stand is castings! He loves the models and getting the attention but for some strange reason he hates when they walk!"
Lola from Kaelen
"Lola likes to come with me to work mostly because she has an incredibly comfortable dog chaise that sits right next to the radiator. So she gets to be around people without having to interact, and she’s warm on a bed. Her dream. She doesn’t love activity, so this is the best for her because she can take in all the activity without needing to participate."
Robert Verdi and Winky
"When I'm out at meetings, Winky stays busy picking out accessories for my clients."
Mayonnaise from Factory PR, @mayolebulldog
The best way to describe Mayo is with an inter-office email:
"Mayo is on a tear this AM. Please make her terrorization of the office harder by picking up pens and other random supplies off the floor. So far she has been caught with 4 pens, a tape dispenser, a pair of hue tights, a Kipling monkey key chain, highlighter caps and the best… a piece of chewing gum. Oh and a bottle cap. Thanks guys!"
Thatcher at Misha Nonoo
"Thatcher loves being surrounded by all the ladies in the office as she is truly a girly girl at heart and loves all the attention that she gets from the team members. She often lies on her back, legs akimbo, in the middle of the studio waiting for someone to give her a tummy rub, subtlety isn't her strong suit!"
