Meet Roxy!

Roxy is our #Arkanine of the week and her human is Chad, who leads our transcription team. She is a 1 1/2-year-old boxer who likes going to the park and riding down the slide with her other human, Colin (pictured with her). Roxy enjoys digging holes and chasing squirrels but mostly loves barking at the neighbors, at shadows of clouds, a stiff breeze, the leaves on the trees, or just barking to break up the boredom of an otherwise peaceful evening. Another favorite activity of Roxy's is chewing on bones, patio furniture, water hoses, umbrellas, shoes, TV remotes, or anything...

Meet Sura!

Meet Sura! 🐱 #Arkanines Sura is 8 months old and belongs to April. Her favorite things are tuna, cuddles, chasing the laser pointer (or her tail, or her siblings), and hanging out with her big sister, Tara. Sura wants to be just like the big cats, but she's not quite there yet. She falls a lot, but she always gets right back up and keeps on playing.

Christmas Tree Decorating Contest

This week, different teams throughout Arkana participated in a Christmas tree decorating contest. The Grinch might have taken a few ornaments & a few balloons may have popped, but we all had a great time and enjoyed seeing everyone’s creativity.   Congrats to the Lab for winning this year!
