Meet the Dogs of DLC
DLC technically stands for Dotted Line Communications – but with this group, it also stands for Dog Lovers Club. One of the biggest perks of working from home is having (wo)man’s best friend in the PR trenches.
Sure, other workplaces have bring your dog to work days or doggy daycare, but the DLC gals have their dogs as PR sidekicks, all day everyday. As the sole dog lover who doesn’t actually own a dog, I live vicariously through my colleagues’ puppy pics and stories. And now you can too!
Whether you’re a fellow dog lover, couldn’t get enough of #NationalDogDay posts, or just plain curious, meet the dogs of DLC:

Role at DLC: “Monk and Murdoch are great listeners and are always there when I need to bounce ideas off them or read a release or other content I’m writing out loud. They also ensure I get out of the house on a daily basis – there is a lot in the world to sniff, and they make sure I know it.”

Role at DLC: “Dakota has a pretty easy going life. He gets a long walk each morning before work and then spends the day moving from room to room in a series of long naps. Some of this time is spent asleep on the floor of my office, providing moral support in the form of the noises he makes while dreaming of chasing squirrels.”
Owner: Stephanie Cooley
Favorite Food: My breakfast. Sometimes I put my plate of breakfast on my desk and leave the room for a second to get something and when I come back, it’s mysteriously gone!
Favorite Activity: Typical dog stuff – belly rubs, walks, treats and licking the food off the floor that the baby “drops.”
Favorite Animal Celeb/Social Media Sensation: Denver the Guilty Dog!
Go-to Media Outlet: Rabbits USA is like porn to my dog.

Owner: Erin Fisher

Favorite Activity: Sleeping in the sun
Favorite Animal Celeb/Social Media Sensation: TOAST!!!
Go-to Media Outlet: The Ruffington Post 😉
Role at DLC: “My dog Walter, named for Breaking Bad kingpin Walter White, is the exact opposite of the one who knocks. He’s the one who naps. He is equal parts lazy and loving and is my complete obsession. Walt can usually be found snoozing throughout the house, depending on where the sun shines brightest. When he’s in my office, he loves to listen to pitches and client calls from his perch on my chair or ottoman.”
