Can you guess the animal’s person?
This pupper’s name is Belial. He’s too smart for his own good, loves gnawing on bones, and hates being petted.
Answers can be shared with colleagues and guessed among the office. Next week’s newsletter will have the owner’s name. Last week’s pet was Mary Elizabeth Braun’s pup, Lucy.
