I’m a dog’s dog. You know, a ball-chasing, pretty-boy, shoe-chewer who craves constant attention. Yep, that’s me.
My name : Ollie Foppa Dunn. Don’t start with the middle name. The dork that named me had some unhealthy obsession with a former Colorado Avalanche star and wanted to live out his failed hockey dreams through me. Doesn’t he know dogs can’t skate? I am one world-class belly-sliding snow dog, however. Give me a hilly Boulder snow run and I’ll out-glissade any Newton clad biped. I’m fast (downhill at least).
While I’m honored to be featured here, truth is I almost never get invited to the Newton offices. Seems my fancy-pants dad thinks monitoring my trash can obsession all day may disrupt his productivity. I call that an inflated sense of self-importance. It’s a good thing he’s in the shoe business. Where’s that bright-orange one? Woof.
My name is Ella. I’m from the streets of Phoenix, where I spent my puppy-hood homeless, begging on the corner with a cardboard sign. My life has greatly improved since being hired by Newton Running where I work at the Lab in Boulder. Selling running shoes is a challenge due to my phobia of people and because I have paws.
My Father says I’m a Stink Hound, but I believe I’m an exotic Pharoah Hound of noble blood line.
My hobbies include hunting small, cute creatures such as rabbits, squirrels, and prairie dogs and sleeping. In summer I love going on high mountain runs where I play on glaciers and swim in lakes. In moments of great joy, I am compelled to run figure-eights.
I’m not fond of puppies, babies, or dry dog food and believe that cats are not to be trusted.
Thanks for reading a little about me and may you enjoy your summer!
Likes: Getting belly rubs, chewing on shoes (have only destroyed a few Newtons), going for car rides and sticking my head out the window!
Dislikes: Don’t let my size and big paws fool you- anything unfamiliar scares me: strangers, loud noises, new places! But once I get to know you we’ll become best buds! I also dislike running; my owners try and take me but I protest by stopping to lay down!
Favorite hangouts: My backyard and anywhere my owners are!
Plays with: Any dog I can get to play with me! Especially my litter-mate sister Mabel- we found each other again at a doggie camp when we were a few months old and have been inseparable ever since!
Summary: I’m a 1 ½ year old Lab/Shar-Pei mix (this is my owner’s best guess). I was a scared little puppy when my owners adopted me but I’ve grown up to become a handsome confident man. I still have some fears to get over but hopefully I’m done growing at about 75lbs. I’m a pretty laid back guy and love coming into the Newton headquarters where I get lots of lovin’!
