Mascot

About Our Mascot

As black and fuzzy as he is loving and mischievous, our MC Mascot is a gracefully aging Vizslador. Half Labrador, half Vizsla, this “velcro pup” is known throughout the office to reduce stress, notify us of when the mail comes and of course, keep the carpet under mom’s desk nice and warm.

  • Client Greeter
  • Garbage Can Management
  • Employee Lunch Monitor
  • Security Guard
  • Morale Booster

A Little About Me:
My mom was a Labrador and dad, well, we think he was a Vizsla. As one of 11 boys – yep, you heard me, 11 – I was the quiet little runt in the corner. I was only 8 weeks old when mom and dad took me home in 2007, but I still remember those first few months well – sitting on mom’s lap helping her finish her master’s thesis. Ah, those were great times.

What I most enjoy about MC:
Well, my mom used to travel a lot for work. I missed her immensely. I think the best part of working at MC now is that I get to spend 100% of my time with her! At home, at work, in the car, I even follow her around in the kitchen, to the bathroom, in the garage, to bed. She says I’m always underfoot, and it’s pretty spectacular if you ask me!

When I’m not at work:
Boy, a little squirrel chasing is always on the agenda. I hear Kelsey has this bunny Simon, wouldn’t mind meeting him. Not sure how she caught him, but I commend her speed and agility!

I’m afraid of:
The vacuum cleaner.

Something most people don’t know about me:
How to spell my name.

Things that make me happy:
Mom. Dad. Brendon. Anna. Brock. Kelsey. Steve. Kris. Brian. Grandma M. Grandpa M . Angela. Mike. Liam. Baby N. Dean. Janet. Adam. Chris. Emily. Krista. Andrew. Todd. Josh. Greg. Sharon. Brian. Paige. Jonny. Grandma R. Grandpa R. Ben. Grandma D. Grandpa D. Allison. Sam. Sally. Terry. Lisa. Becky. Violet. Quentin. Jaime. Uma.

Favorite foods:
I’m partial to anything I can pick out of the garbage.

Hobbies:
Sleeping. Laying the sun. Having my head scratched, ears scratched, belly scratched, back scratched.
