Here at the WeaveUp headquarters, we have a team member who comes to work every day on 4 short legs. Rescued by our CMO, Steve DeSantis, Sophie is our resident pet. Sophie is a 9-year old Basset Hound who loves to go on walks to the tennis courts behind our building and find stray tennis balls. She has a whole collection in our office!

Sophie is one of many of our WeaveUp Pets, and this post is to honor them. Because, let’s face it – they make our lives happier!


This is Eddie: the sweet, loving menace who’s always always knocking knick knacks over, stealing food, or sleeping sprawled in the middle of the hallway. He belongs to our developer, Ben’s parter’s mom, and is one of Ben’s favorite fur babies.


Cookie is the adorable baby that belongs to our designer, Rana. One of Cookie’s quirks: she sits next to Rana and puts one paw on her leg. This is known as “the paw of ownership” (because she’s claiming her human). She’s 9 pounds of love and fun; her favorite things are wrestling with toys and getting belly rubs!


This is Goose, he belongs to Zach, our Lead Developer, this kitty is part Maine Coon {look at his cute ears!}, and weights 20lbs. His favorite relaxing spot is inside the kitchen cabinets where Zach keep his pots and pans, he loves quiet, cool places, but he also seems to love to hang out with Zach near his laptop, we bet he can develop websites a little bit too!


Snuggles, Curly, Lucy, Apollo and Mattie; these doggies are part of an 8-dog pack that belong to Eloisa, our Web Content Manager. Eloisa also has 2 bunnies and hens; and they all live on a couple of acres, so they have plenty of room to roam! – Did we mention our team loves animals?


This is Dinah: our developer, Damien’s 6 lb. full grown cat. She goes by “Princess Baby Cat” and “Tiny Cat,” because of her size. She’s also know as “Miss Persnickety,” because even though she is very proper and polite, she is incredibly particular and ridiculously spoiled; which leads to some occasional sassiness.


Buddy belongs to our developer, Jared. He’s 10 years old and is the sweetest dog there is! When Jared and his new family decided to hit the road for new adventures, Buddy adopted Jared’s parents. But don’t worry! They get to see each other very often; and this makes the relationship even more special. He’s so lucky to have so many humans that care for him!

It looks like we aren’t alone in the love of animals! Check out these really cool designs inspired by pets from our wonderful independent designers:
