Office Staff

Toby, Chief Nap Officer

Toby, Chief Nap Office

Taking leadership lessons from Brendan, his owner and TMF president, to the extreme, Toby delegates almost every typical dog job such as office security, recycling, and squirrel patrol to the other office staff. In between his numerous daily luxurious naps, he lays with contemplative expressions, walks stubbornly while waiting for strangers to pay him affection, and practices being an ottoman. After charging up for the day he has a burst of energy for about 15 minutes before settling down for the night.

Rollo, Director of the Humans

Returned to Planned Pethood several times before finding his forever home, this unique character took on the role of Director of the Humans when it became clear that they were doing an abominable job of managing themselves. He has one human in particular, Kristin, wrapped around his little paw. He spends his day ensuring she leaves her desk as often as possible to get in the recommended daily 10,000 steps — by procuring him treats and walking him around the neighborhood.

Reuben, Director of the Squeaky Toys

A volunteer from Planned Pethood spotted this young pup being sold for a couple of bucks outside a market in Indiana. Given his clear aptitude for accounting and management, she quickly took him (and his tiny abacus) back to Ohio, where he had a short stay in a foster home before being adopted ... er, hired by The Modern Firm. These days, Reuben is a regular K9 to 5’er keeping the sales team happy, entertained, and efficient. He works hard but plays harder!

Hiro and Piper, Graphic Design Support and GDPR Compliance

Of Japanese ancestry, Hiro and Piper live in Washington state and support TMF’s Seattle graphic design hub. Avid hikers, in their off-hours they enjoy the Pacific Northwest’s natural beauty, expressing a particular interest in its small, soft native inhabitants such as rabbits, squirrels, and socks. They also love to play fetch and, thanks to their international background, they are TMF’s primary GDPR compliance experts.

Piper, Head of Catvertising


Piper started her career early on when she had to convince a team of firefighters to save her from a drainpipe at just four weeks old, but she didn't have to work too hard to get rescued and brought onto the TMF team. From then on, she knew she was destined to eat, nap, and use her cuteness to pay her way and help catvertise for the company. 


Moose, Scheduling Manager and Official Morale Booster

The majority of Moose's day is spent as scheduling manager, where he keeps Michele on task. His tactics include laying his head on her keyboard if projects are taking too long - moving only after cuddles and loads of duck jerky. The rest of the day he does his best at keeping morale can you take one look at that face and not be happy?! Off the clock, he enjoys losing tennis balls under the furniture, Frisbee catching, dock jumping, lake swimming, and boat captaining.

Chewie, Toy Durability Officer & Yeti, Chief of Tail Wagging

Chewy and Yeti

Chewie and Yeti are a rescue brother duo team who dabble in sitting, shaking, and rolling over for treats, but who really thrive in the business department. They believe in growing a business through building relationships, chewing on only the most durable toys, licking all the faces they can, and keeping customers happy and wagging their tails.


Juno, Squirrel and UPS Driver Surveillance Unit


Juno joined The Modern Firm after escaping from a secret government detention center in Greensboro, North Carolina, where she was being held as a political prisoner (her cover story was that she was "abandoned" at an "animal shelter"). With a background in espionage, Juno heads up TMF's Squirrel and UPS Driver Surveillance Unit. When not apprehending suspects, Juno focuses on maintaining an appropriate creative environment for the company's writing staff: brief periods of peaceful silence punctuated with encouraging vocalizations in one of the many languages in which she is fluent, including Labrador, Terrier, and French. Inspired by her coworkers' writings, in her spare time Juno is working on her next project, a motivational volume with the working title: "WHO'S a Good Girl? YOU Are!"

Arlo & Aurora, Head of Technical Support and Packaging 

Typically focused on catnapping, Arlo and Aurora have taken a break to work on their technical and packaging teamwork skills. Although they don’t have thumbs, they are able to get a lot accomplished. Keyboard troubles? Aurora will sprawl across your computer. No keyboard - no problem! Battery issues? That is because Arlo decided that your computer cord looks better in two pieces rather than one (he has the same theory about phone chargers as well). They also realize that the attention shifts towards them when technology is out of the way. However, despite disliking the strange people at the door, their favorite task is handling all of the incoming packages. They will even open them for you (and then inhabit the box too)!

Obie and Rolo, Digital Marketing Assistants and Community Bark Brigade Leaders

This dynamic-duo use their humor to distract, have quick feet to get away and practice their strong analytical skills to take down any enemy, like squirrels and rabbits. They hung up their collars on bounty hunting and joined the team as digital marketing assistants. They spend the day making sure Erin is staying on task, reminding her to stretch her legs, providing cuddles when needed, but most importantly leading the neighborhood bark brigade when necessary. 

Rufus (Chief Fetching Officer) & Leo (Director of Smells and Barketing)

This dynamic duo helps to maintain sanity in the Henry household. When not chasing each other up and down the stairs, they can be found cuddled at their human’s feet or sunbathing on the balcony. These two are definitely your stereotypical dogs. Rufus loves nothing more than an extended game of fetch with his special ball and Leo longs to spend his time tracking scents in the forest all day. These fellas love what they do especially with their bonus structure built around belly rubs and treats.
