Paw Partners

We have a long-held practice of bringing our dogs to work, and on any given day you may see a well-behaved "Paw Partner" greeting clients, playing, or napping. Lucy Belle, the Small Munsterlander is our present Paw Partner. Her interests include bird watching, meeting new clients, and taste-testing various foods.

Our previous Paw Partner, Rudy the Pug, retired in September of 2017, and presently lives with John C. Norton and his family.

We remember fondly Rudy's siblings including his Boston terrier brother Duncan, his brother and sister Cairn terriers Kopell and Kachina, as well as another Boston terrier brother Dexter, all of whom crossed the rainbow bridge after over a combined 16 years of faithful service to the firm. After coming in every day, even when their human was on vacation, we know they are still with us in spirit.
