We are pretty lucky here at Honey Stinger, along with our sister companies- Big Agnes, and BAP!, as we get to take our dogs to the office with us every day. In honor of Take Your Dog to Work Day, we decided to ask our canine companions a little bit about themselves. They’re all normally pretty shy, so we were lucky they squeezed us in for a little interview. With some help from their owners, these pups gave us some pretty great bios.
