Pets are Family

At Wondercide, we believe that pets are family. And that's one reason it's so great thatyou're allowed to bring your dog to work. While you may be familiar with some of the Wondercide team from calling customer service, you may not have met their furry family members, as we've yet to figure out how to get our four-legged friends to answer the phone! So, without further ado, let us introduce to you our wild pack of Wonderpups.

Have any funny stories about her?

We went camping out on a friend's land and went night exploring in the back of a truck with a light. We didn't see or hear anything, but Luna jumped out of the back of the moving truck and chased down...a SKUNK! The skunk sprayed her right in the face and we had to forgo our Bloody Mary's the next day to bathe her in tomato juice. She still stunk the rest of the trip, even with multiple dips in the river. Every time she would walk by somebody, we would just laugh because she smelled SOOO BAD!

Do you have a funny story about him?

I only had Mac for a week or at the time, and I got home one day and couldn't find him. I looked all over the house & in the backyard. I was sure that he'd gotten out and run away. I was so worried and mad at myself, then I went into my room to lie down when, suddenly, I heard something under the bed. It was my little Mac! He'd wedged himself into the box spring and was chilling there. The noise I heard was his little tail giving his position away. He wasn't stuck or anything and he still likes to go hang out under there when he needs some Mac time _ _ __ _ __ _ _ _ _ __ _ __ _ __ _ __ _ __ _ __ _ __ _ _

DETOX Any funny stories about her?

My cousin and I were casually walking with her in an off-leash area by Austin's Town Lake, where the grass led up to a ledge over the water and taking in the view. Bodies of water make Kiley particularly hyper and impulsive, though, so she took the opportunity to do a few zoomies then dive bomb over the edge and into the murkiest part of the water. I think she thought the line of buoys in the lake were a solid platform, so when she tried to climb up on them and realized they weren't stable, she began flailing around and covering all her limbs in gunky moss. My cousin quickly grabbed a lawn chair and lowered it over the ledge for her to climb onto, and when he got her back onto land she looked – and smelled – like the Swamp Thing!
