Henri and Theo
Chief Canine Officers (CCOs)
Agency dog. It’s a highly underrated and hugely important position.
The agency dog must over-enthusiastically greet guests, provide comic relief and lead by example, projecting a calm, cool attitude that emphasizes the importance of long naps on the office couch to clear the mind.
Because our longtime Chief Canine Officer Henri has carried out these responsibilities so flawlessly over the years, we’ve given him a new assignment. He is now taking our CCO-in-training Theo under his wing – or, rather, paw – and turning him into a world-class agency dog in his own right.
