Hermes, after the Greek god, not the fancy scarves

Nickname: Hermie, Herman, Hermie-Wormie, Wiggle-Butt

Species/breed: Boxer-lab cross

Age: 10

Fave food: If it is food, or if it touched food once, he will eat it.

Special tricks: Finding the tiniest bit of space to fit on the couch when you tell him there is no more room.

Best quality: Pure love and snuggles

Social media platform or handle, if available: He has a hashtag, #itwasHermes, for his many adventures.


Name: Loki, after the Norse god, not the Marvel character (she came first!)

Nickname: Loki-Lou, Lou-Lou, Wiggle-Nubbin

Species/breed: we joke she was put together by committee. She’s a super mutt

Age: 12.5

Fave food: Mushrooms. She will do anything for a mushroom.

Special tricks:  She can give high five- and ten, shake paws, sit pretty, spin in a circle, and hold a treat on her nose until given permission to eat it.

Best quality: Calm sweetness

Social media platform or handle, if available: Her hashtag is #LokiToo because even though she’s older, Hermes is the bigger goofball and she tags along.
