One of the best things about working at Nix Hydra is our office dogs! There are so many great dogs in our office and they’ve taken time out of their very busy day to say hi!
“Hi I daisy - I dog - I love treats - I love friendship - I love Rhea"
“Hi, I'm Cora! I love coming to work with my dad. Every morning, he puts me in his backpack and we ride the train together. A lot of people see this and tell my dad how behaved I am.
When we get to the office, I immediately squirm out of my polyester prison and drift on the concrete floors as I chase my boyfriend Bagel in circles. He likes to steal my toys and hide them from me, but it's ok because he's always willing to wrestle me over them until his mom takes him away. My dad says I'm "allergic" to other dog's drool but I don't care! I love to get rowdy with all the other dogs, especially Rhea because she likes to hug my neck with her teeth.
My favorite things are cat food, water, and metal bowls. I like helping the other dogs finish their water even though it makes me puke because I drink too fast! After all the bowls are empty, I like to grind my teeth on them because it feels good and I like the taste of steel. My dad says I'm a gremlin but I prefer when Rhea's mom calls me a special dog because it makes me feel beautiful.
At the end of the day I fall asleep in my dad's chair and make funny snoring noises. I get farty when I sleep but it's ok because I'm sleeping so I never have to worry about about smelling it. After my nap, I wake up and look for new toys to break into tiny pieces before I go back into the bag to go home!"
“I hope no one is mad at me. I want to be the best dog. I love friends”
"Hi there! My mom calls me Bagel or whatever but I pretty much respond to anything you say as long as you also have a treat! I love going to work with my mom because a lot of my favorite things are here like all the good good toys laying on the floor that are ALL MINE!!! Sometimes when I'm playing with toys my mom takes it away and makes me sit in my chair because "I don't know how to share"...but why do I have to when its mine??
If all the toys are put away I play with my best friend / girlfriend Cora! She's super strong and we both like to chew on each others feet~. When I start to get sleepy from all the good times I'm having I like to sleep on my own very business chair next to my mom's desk. Whenever she gets up to leave the room I HAVE to follow her to make sure she's not leaving me FOREVER!! I'd like to think I'm a good protector around here because whenever I smell someone unfamiliar to me stepping foot into this place I bark at them to let them know I see/smell their suspicious smell, but if you give me a treat and pet me I MIGHT stop...for a while."
Every morning I am pulled out of my bed at home and transported to my bed at work. There are countless friends here but my best friend is Rhea, who shares my love of solitude and violence. The best part of my day is when I get to poop with all my friends. The worst part of my day is when my puny human goes too far down the hall and out of my range of sight. Why does he do this, knowing I can't go down the hall because it is too long and too spooky?
"Please don't look at me"
"My name is Volta
I am small
scraps and crumbs
I find them all
my shiny eye
is filled with tears
from all my joy
and all my fears
don’t clap. dOn’t cLAP!!"
