Poet of the Unspoken Word | Treat-hunter
Gymmy works like a dog in the office, sprinting in each morning with boundless enthusiasm. He usually settles on his cushioned bed to keep watch before dozing into a deep slumber—if he’s really zen you’ll hear snores from his corner. Gymmy is always there to keep our team morale high, especially around the holidays when he pulls out his seasonal Christmas sweaters and Halloween costumes. In his spare time, he loves trading tricks for treats and chasing his designer-carved fetching stick.
