The Dog Days of Summer
Here we are, halfway through 2021, in the dog days of summer. While many of us are still adjusting to the changes and realities of the past year and a half, there are some things that may have seemed strange a couple years ago, but are now so commonplace, we may not even stop to think about them anymore. And if there is a silver lining to this cloud, not all of those changes have been bad.
Virtual work, Zoom meetings, conference calls, and the hundred other ways we found to keep working, stay in touch, and move through pandemic life, introduced a new dynamic to a lot of work days. Morning meetings at the breakfast table, interviews in the guest room hoping the kids can stay quiet, and of course, the curious noses, whiskers, and snouts that love to peak their way into the corner of our screens.
Many of us had an opportunity to see into the everyday lives of our colleagues, clients, coworkers, and supervisors in ways we might not have before. We got to see children, spouses, and pets roaming through the backgrounds of our meetings and in some cases, suddenly appearing point blank in our webcams. ”Sorry about that,” and “Please excuse the noise,” became common refrains and often refreshing moments of humanity in an isolating time. So in honor of those moments, the crew here at Marketicity wanted to give a proper introduction to the pets that have made themselves a regular part of our workday.
Khaleesi and Apollo Antor love eating snacks, chasing squirrels, and taking naps. Khaleesi likes to be on standby for Zoom calls while Apollo likes to watch for squirrels. Calvin and Olive Antor are actually cats and may look sweet, but they run the house (and the dogs).
Macy Most is the official Head of Security for Marketicity, though to be honest, she isn’t great at her job. However, she loves sitting on laps and giving kisses.
Coco Jacobs is cute, but loose items and flies better beware, she will attack them both. Trixie Jacobs is the diva. She will only lay on the softest surfaces and is an escape artist in training.
