Following up on our wildly successful post introducing Clover, Effie, Lexy, Riley, and Tanner a week and a half ago, we’re now introducing the next batch of Rightside dogs including another talented writer (this time a golden retriever), another fan of Natalya at the front desk, and a bulldog who claims to dance on yoga balls.
Breed: Queensland Heeler
Hobbies: Playing fetch is my favorite thing, ever. Beyond that, I love belly rubs and smelling new people.
How long have you been visiting the office: I have been coming to the office for almost two years, my favorite thing here in Kirkland is all the Bacon. No, not money. Bacon. This place seems to smell like bacon every morning and the folks next door (not sure if I should mention Kidd Valley) know it’s my favorite.
Favorite nTLD: .NINJA
Story of how you rescued/found your human: I was young, cold, tired, and alone in the mountains of New Mexico. Many people tried to help me, and I’m grateful; he was special though. It wasn’t love at first sight, but would become the longest relationship for either of us.
Rightside human and Rightside human’s title: Randy is my human, and he works in Technical Support.
Hobbies: Sleeping. That’s all, just sleeping.
How long have you been visiting the office: I’ve been visiting the office since October when my parents rescued me.
Favorite nTLD: .VET–duh!
Story of how you rescued/found your human: My humans found me through the American Bullmastiff Association Rescue Services (ABARS). They were looking specifically for a Bullmastiff because we are gentle with children. They called the Association on a Monday night and by Saturday night I was home with them–and made my first visit to the office two days later!
Rightside human and Rightside human’s title: Melisah Burke, VP, Human Resources
Breed: Australian Labradoodle
Hobbies: Playing ball and napping. Repeat.
How long have you been visiting the office and what are your favorite office pastimes: I have been visiting Rightside for the past nine months. I play catch in the accounting hallways, lay in the hallway, and steal kisses from Sahar.
Favorite: nTLD: .ACCOUNTANT … DUH!
Story of how you rescued/found your human: It was puppy love at first sight!
Rightside human and Rightside human’s title: Heather Buser, VP, Controller
Name: Josie McRae
Breed: Golden Retriever
Hobbies: Swimming after the tennis ball is my favorite! And taking my human for a walk when she takes me for a walk (I think she calls it pulling?). I have to be first in line, you know, and she needs to strengthen her arm muscles. It’s a win-win for both. Chasing ducks is top on my list, too. Someday I will be able to say hello to one–for some reason they always fly away from me. OK, umm … what else? OH! Sticking my head out the window of the car, sleeping in weird positions, and last BUT NOT LEAST, eating popcorn. I prefer when it’s buttered and has white cheddar seasoning on it. Yes, I’ve mastered the beg face, muwahahaha! Wait, did I mention I’m a dog with a blog? Oh yes, I am one of the authors of the enom.com blog. So you better read my stuff … or I will give you slobbery kisses!
How long have you been visiting the office and what are your favorite office pastimes: My favorite part of the day is when we first arrive at the Rightside office. I sprint off the elevator and directly to Natalya, the receptionist, who gives me like 5 treats and love. Other people gather around and they all seem to know my name. Then I’m ready for an 8 hour nap in the marketing corner of the building. My human brought in a giant dog bed for me–this prevents Kimberly (my favorite human in the office besides Natalya) from being able to easily sneak by me. It’s my office rule: you must rub my belly before you can walk by. And you must acknowledge that I have a toy in my mouth, too.
There’s this other human, Sean, who comes over a lot, and when he does, I always get this sudden urge to gobble my food up as fast as I can. Whenever my human wants me to eat, she calls him over. She may have outsmarted me here …
Sometimes my human leaves me off the leash. I love those days, because I like to sneak off and say hi to as many people as I can before she catches me.
Favorite nTLD: .SOCIAL, of course! (A) because I own one, duh: www.josiemcrae.social. I think I’m going to sign up for Twitter and redirect it there. And (B) because I’m social. Everyone wants to meet me whether they like it or not. And I will lick them and sometimes burp at them if I’m feeling frisky.
Story of how you rescued/found your human: There was just me and my sister left out of the litter, so I charmed her with my butt wiggle, kisses, and snuggles! The best part? My human’s Mom and Dad adopted my sister just days after I found my home! Her name is Mylee, and she is my best dog friend in the whole wide world. Well, besides Riley, Kimberly’s dog. He’s my boyfriend.
Rightside human and Rightside human’s title: My human, Nicole, works in the marketing department, and I think she writes and designs stuff because she’s constantly asking me to come up with content. As if I can take time out of my nap for that! I’m just happy I get to be with her during the day.

Favorite: nTLD: .ROCKS of course because Sophie.rocks!
Story of how you rescued/found your human: My human was visiting the Human Society with a friend because he wanted a dog. She wasn’t even looking. I was just 12 weeks old and she fell in love with me.
