I am a pointer/pitbull mix and I boss around Tako founder, Z! I live a fucking lavish life. Coming from the streets to a king size bed and a lot of treats, I have zero complaints. I made it. I only get pissed when my parents leave me alone for more than 15 mins...I rage. Otherwise all is good in the neighborhood.

I am a husky/Malamute/sheepdog mix and I boss around Tako CEO + Creative Director, Grace. Mom and I became a team a little later in life -- she found me in a Florida shelter when I was 8 years old! I’m in pretty good shape for an old dude though, not gonna lie *buffs nails*. Mom says I am the most gentle, charming dog on the planet...and it’s true that I have a long history of winning over “I don’t like dogs” people. I like sleeping, getting pets on the head, napping outside, chicken, and yelling at ravens who fly too close to my yard.

I am a white German shepherd and I boss around CEO + Creative Director, Grace. Mommy and Daddy found me at the shelter and fell in love with me immediately (who wouldn’t?). Even though it was love at first sight, once we got to our new home it was hard for me to adapt after living on the streets for two years. I didn’t know how to do anything. Mom says I didn’t know how to be a dog. There were lots of tears in the beginning (I’m sorry about the couch, Mom...and the blinds...and the walls...and the doors…..), but we love each other too much to quit. My anxiety is much better now and I’m more confident and secure. I love talking, yogurt, snuggles in bed, yelling, bones to gnaw, yelling some more, and walkies.

Age: 3
I am a tuxedo domestic shorthair and I boss around Ops Wizard + Content Manager, Emma. The mean streets of Dallas, TX raised me for my first month of life. Maybe due to consequent trauma, I regularly see ghosts. I try to alert my mother to their presence, but she calls me crazy and ignores me. Aside from the constant cuddles (only when I want them, thank you), organic food (shredded chicken in gravy and some gravely nonsense mom says is good for my teeth), and regular distribution of treats, I live a truly tortured life.

I am a 5 year old banana ball python and I boss around Tech Lead, Jackie. I spent the first six weeks of my life with my mom and siblings in a modest storage bin in Miami. Determined to move up in the world, I traded that bin in for a spacious 20 gallon home, and then a 40 gallon mansion. In the years since, I’ve become an accomplished interior decorator. I firmly believe all the decor in my tank looks best pushed over on its side. On occasion, I try slipping out of my elegant estate to work my creative genius on my mom’s office, but she doesn’t share my sense of style. What can I say? It’s hard being an innovator.

I am a Dutch Warmblood Gelding and I boss around Tech Lead, Jackie. My leisure time is very important to me - I never cared much for the grind of working. I wanted to live a life full of massages, long vacations, tasty treats, and those sweet drugs the vet brings me. After a long year of hard work and perseverance, I finally made that dream come true and retired early in Kentucky. It’s the land of bourbon - but I’ve always preferred a good scotch.

I boss around Project Manager, Nicole. I am a shepherd hound/German shepherd mix hailing from Zimbabwe and adopted by my furever family in South Africa. My favorite thing to do during the day is sunbathe outside, chase squirrels, and play with my human brother and sister in the yard. You can find me on most days running around on hiking trails and splashing in the water. Inside the house I have commandeered the couch as my own. My mom and siblings love singing with me around the house.

Boss of: Cindy
Age: 9
I’m an oversized Pomeranian and I boss around Admin Assistant, Cindy. Other important things to know:

 1. I was a Mother’s Day gift to Cindy in 2012. I was 2 1/2 months old. I came in a giant box with a bow. Mom says I should have come with a warning label and a new carpet. Dad says I’m perfect. Mom says Dad should have come with a warning label, too. 2. Unfamiliar humans freak me out. Also see: cars, trucks, bicycles, skateboards, motorcycles, animals on television, and smoke detectors. 3. Circles are important. Circle your food. Turn round many times before lying down. Turn a lot when someone is going to throw your toy. I don’t know why, but you aren’t descended from wolves, so.

I think I’m part rat terrier and part Chihuahua, and I boss around Cindy (Admin Assistant). I'm a rescued Cali girl! Other important things to know: 1. Mom and Dad adopted me. They thought I might like playing with The Other One, but they were wrong. He’s uncivilized. 2. I like down. Leaving the floor is dumb. 3. I’m very, very nerv – YOU AREN’T LEAVING ARE YOU WHY ARE YOU LEAVING please stay I want to go take me no I hate cars OH MY GOD WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE. 4. I solemnly swear you did not give me breakfast. And that I did not eat The Other One’s breakfast. Both of those things.

I boss around Web Developer, Gary. Some people think I’m a pit bull/boxer/vizsla - but who knows! The only thing that is certain is I’m 100% cute and 110% the best boy. Life is simple when you follow the three P’s: play, peanut butter, and pouting (to get more peanut butter, of course).

I am a white/gray/black tabby cat and I boss around graphic designer, Hazal. My parents adopted me when I was 1 month old. When they came in the house and they saw me climbing the curtain… that was the moment they wanted to take good care of me. My favorite toys are aluminum folio balls, any kind of rope that reminds me of those snakes (!), and paper grocery bags to dive in! My mom loves me so much. I sometimes end up biting her in the face so, she would stop kissing me. I do secretly enjoy it but you humans are huge, man… it gets scary. After all, I do enjoy my lifestyle and doing parkour around the house, sleeping while sun hits me in the face, eating special cat treats after play sessions. I simply define life with a famous cat saying: ‘’Meow, purr mırr marr, purr ma’’.
