Meet the Interns
Here are our bios so you can get to know us a little better and to see how it all started!
A Refresher | The O.G. of Canine Interns
My name is Coby. I’m a three-year-old Rottweiler mix. I’m a rescue from Texas. I love playing with my bestie, Jerry, I love all my park and beach friends, my family and a good cannoli. My nickname is Cobinoli because I love cannolis so much! I’m 80lbs (probably should lay off the cannolis), hate bugs, love a good butt scratch and I want to cure cancer in pets and people.
My name is Jerry. I’m a two-year-old boxer. I love playing with my bestie, Coby, I love all my other friends, my family, bananas and watermelon. I’m just shy of 60lbs, have an extreme vertical jump and if blowing spit bubbles was an Olympic sport, I’d take home the gold. I also love to give excessive kisses! My nickname is J-Bomb because I have so much playful energy! Like Coby, I want to cure cancer in pets and people.
Staff Update | The New Interns Have Arrived
Jerry and I met several times and decided that we needed to focus on inclusion in the workplace. We didn’t want to be known for age or gender discrimination. So lucky for us, two outstanding women raised their paws to come on board. As elated as we are to be able to hire, it got us thinking that this is going to create an entirely new workstream for us. We have quickly gone from individual contributors to managers in a little over a month!
But despite the extra work that being a manager may bring our way, we are overjoyed to introduce everyone to Jackie and Winnie. Their first assignment was to write a brief bio to add to our blog…
My name is Jackie. I am a smooth dachshund. I traded in rescue/foster life earlier this year for my furever home! What I lack in height I certainly make up in happy energy and personality. From the moment I wake up until the minute I go to sleep, my tail is happily wagging. I love pizza crust (uh, who wouldn’t?)… thin, NY style, Chicago style and even Detroit style… you give it to me and I will gleefully eat it! I’m representing all the seniors who want to come out of retirement for a good cause. Look out Golden Girls… here I come! Like Coby and Jerry, I want to cure cancer in pets and people.
My name in Winona, but you can call me, Winnie! If you’re out at the beach or park, you’ll hear lots of people screaming my name as I suffer from the not so rare condition of selective hearing. I’m a 1 year old, Coonhound mix and really like to get my smell on. I’m sassy like my new intern friend, Jackie. I dabble in the culinary arts as an uninvited taste tester and I’m a highly trained counter-surfer! Like Coby, Jerry and Jackie, I want to cure cancer in pets and people.
