She loves writing about marketing, new innovations and anything culture related, and is happy to do so with a little dog sitting beside her. (like our office’s Joy for instance.) When she’s not busy writing you can find her practising her yoga poses, as well as singing professionally and dubbing.

D’ya like Ranky’s dags?

Lana is the resident canine feminist. She doesn't let her two X chromosomes get her down — she plays in the dirt, runs the fastest and jumps the highest. Her one floppy ear is her trademark look; she isn't named after Lana Del Rey for nothing.
When he's not busy looking after Gotham City, Batman enjoys fetching sticks, rolling over, and swimming in water fountains. He is the biggest softie around, bringing goodness and cheer to everyone with his winning smile and doggie breath. He puts even the most loyal human to shame, and his love of red meat is his Achilles heel.
Diego is the studliest Shihtzu around. He loves jumping up and down and fetching his squeezy tennis ball. Ladies love Diego for his suave and too-cool-for-school manner. At home though, he's more soft and cuddly with his favorite two-legged creatures, the Margolis family.
Joy's obsession with biscottino’s is real. She has a strong fashion sense and loves warm cuddles. Just because she weighs less than your iPhone 6 doesn’t mean she’s not sassy! When she's not prancing past the most handsome teacup-size terriers, she barks at leaves and plastic bags in the wind.
