Our #WaggingAtWork campaign was a blast thanks to a rat, a cat and the majestic pooches that gave us massive heart-feels! (Cockapoo is the best breed name ever.) An incredible 26 animal-loving offices entered 32 different business-like beasts into the competition. Together, they received 1,346 votes!
And the Winner is…
Watson – Catch Digital
Give This Dog a Bone!
The handsomest Boxer ever from @CatchDigital in London left competitors in the dust with 220 votes! This 4-year-old deaf rescue boy is a big fan of the ladies and runs half marathons with his dad to raise money for cancer and kids charities in his spare time. Just look at him. You can’t beat that. Well done Watson!

#WaggingAtWork Special Mentions!
A few entries that deserve a special mention!
1. ‘Unrequited Dog Love’ Award
Our very own Cape Town office monster, Luna Baboon, came in second with 146 votes! She did it to impress Milo Skywalker in the London office – but he only has eyes for people with treats.

2. ‘Most Hipster Dog’ Award
American Apparel wearing, olive eating, journalist-wooing Otto Von Zigmeister. With an effortlessly cool entry picture and a social life busier than ours, he’s the top hipster dog from Stir PR.

3. The ‘Don’t You Know Who I Am?’ Award
Max the gorgeous rescue boy has been on the Jonathan Ross Show and is so cool he even turned down an offer to be in Downton Abbey! His goal is to encourage everyone to visit their local shelter to find someone just like him!
Max – Big Group
4. The ‘Breaking the Stereotypes’ Award
When it comes to fluffy butts, wagging tails and boundless joy it’s tough to beat a dog, so this joint award goes to Ashton Cat from The Tetrad Consultancy and our beloved rat Sparkles Stone for busting out of the mould and giving the canines some stiff competition!
Ashton Cat – Tetrad Consultancy Sparkles – MediaVision Cape Town
5. The ‘Next Top Dog Model’ Award
This goes to Bauer from Market Reactive – She’s a model on her company’s website and also the head of ‘Morale Control’ around the agency – very important stuff for such a little dog.

6. Freelance Bestie Award
Sasha from All Dogs Matter is currently being fostered. She’s the perfect PA and helps to relieve stress at work by providing cuddles and delightful company when she sits on the chair next to you. She deserves a forever home!
