We all love our furry friends. Their antics, love and companionship can entirely make your day. It makes my day when I walk into our office and first thing in the door - a cute dog runs up to me to say hello! Here at House Party we're lucky to work in a very pet-friendly environment.

As such, I want to introduce you to four of our beloved pet friends that often call the House Party offices home. We've asked their owners to provide some fun facts about their pets as well as the requisite cuuuuute photos that really tell you the adorably furry story.
