And we’re back for Round 3 of the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Awards. Nevada is probably going to be awhile so why not take a few minutes and check out our latest round of winning pups?
First up, we have the majestic Selassie Rex Haynes, ecd of R/GA New Jersey. Known for his impeccable timing of squeaky toy play during Zoom calls (something we can definitely relate to here at AgencySpy), he also has his own personal “Bark Down Babylon” ethos by which he lives. There’s a lot to love about Selassie but we were most struck by his deep thinking, including his rejection of the binary of “good vs. bad.” For this reason, he is a worthy recipient of the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Most Philosophical Award. We hope he’ll take a moment to ponder the significance of this distinct honor.
Most Philosophical Award:
Selassie Rex Haynes, ECD of @RGA New Jersey. With a personal ethos of ‘Bark Down Babylon’ he rejects the binary of “good vs bad.” He simply IS.

RPA’s Max cares little for human endeavors. Sure, he’ll lounge around while you’re on Zoom calls and he’s happy to be your constant companion, but beyond that it seems he really can’t be bothered with people stuff. One look at his photo will show that he has easily earned the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Disinterested Doggy Award. And he didn’t even have to try.
Disinterested Doggy Award:
My constant @RPA_advertising colleague, Max. Fav place M-F, perched behind me on teams zooms. Often disinterested. #AgencySpyDOTY @AgencySpy pic.twitter.com/FDYBO5JdEW

Receptionists don’t get much better than Ollie at The Buntin Group. In addition to greeting all kinds of guests, he’s always there for you when you’re having a “ruff” day. It was an easy choice to award Ollie the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Award for Most Welcoming Receptionist.
Most Welcoming Receptionist Award:
Ollie is the best dog receptionist at The Buntin Group. He loves to welcome old and new guests with his friendly manner and nice behavior. When one of our staff members are having a “ruff” day, he’s there for their petting needs. We love Ollie and Ollie loves us. #AgencySpyDOTY pic.twitter.com/sZHtMXE0LO

We’re not sure we should be awarding our next winner at all. Nail Communications’ Gator (great name!) isn’t much for chasing fame or awards. According to his entry, he’d be mortified to learn he’d even be entered into this process. We should be okay for awhile, though, since Gator is currently on a social media cleanse until after the election is over. Gator couldn’t be a more worthy recipient of the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Most Humble Award. He has certainly earned some bragging rights (which he’ll never use).
Most Humble Award:
Gator is not a dog driven by fame or awards. Frankly he’d be mortified to learn we’re nominating him for “Agency Dog of the Year.”
Fortunately he’ll never see this tweet since he’s doing a social media cleanse until the election is over. #AgencySpyDOTY pic.twitter.com/YECFe2qtvf

Chloe over at McGuffin Creative Group is a very different kind of dog. She clearly loves the limelight, and the camera, as attested to with her penchant for glamour shots. She also loves pets, of course, and is well aware that you’re lucky that she’s running the show. For her camera friendly personality, Chloe has been awarded the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Picture Perfect Award.
Picture Perfect Award:
We’re nominating Chloe for #AgencySpyDOTY! Chloe is the resident diva of McGuffin. She holds many titles, including Queen of Glamour Shots, Princess of Pets and Head Lady in Charge of the team (and her brother Ace). She does it all, and doesn’t look a day over 10. @AgencySpy 🐶 pic.twitter.com/HLh2mbVeQH

Stampede’s Lola may not have quite the same flair for the dramatic, but don’t be fooled. While she might go unnoticed while sleeping during Zoom calls, she knows that she’s the one who is truly in charge. Due to that undisputed dynamic, the diminutive Lola has earned AgencySpy Dog of the Year’s Littlest Boss Award.
Littlest Boss Award:
This is Lola. What makes Lola a good girl is her ability to sleep on my lap during calls, going unnoticed most of the time!
Oh, and she’s the boss!
