January 28, 2015 will go down in history as the best day EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRR… today, we got puppies.
As many of you know, Uber is infamous for their amazing surprise and delight specials: kittens, ice cream, even Santa & his elves, have been available for office drive by’s in recent history. This morning, Uber announced that in preparation for Animal Planet’s PUPPY BOWL XI, they were teaming up with PAWS (a local companion animal shelter) to bring some of their puppies up for adoption to local offices for a 15 minute cute break. At 11AM PST, our ENTIRE TEAM logged into their Uber and got to work.
At 1:15PM, our puppy dreams came true, and our friends Jen and Adam from Uber arrived with our sweet new puppy loves-Beast Mode, Rustle, and Wilson. (GO HAWKS!) We even offered up “pawicures” but the pups were a little pre-occupied.
A huge thanks to PAWS and Uber for bringing these three little bundles of joy to our office this afternoon, Kacy (our Director of Ecomm) for having the lucky trigger finger, and the biggest thanks of ALL goes to our CFO Michael, who finally let us have dogs in the office for this one time deal!
