We’ve got another round of AgencySpy Dog of the Year Award winners for you to unwind with this afternoon. This round features everything from an agency PR pup to an especially patient good girl and a dog that helped inspire a musical compilation. Please don’t get concerned if you haven’t seen your favorite agency dog yet, we received an overwhelming number of submissions we we still have a lot of dogs to get through.
Lola is an independent agency’s best friend. This diligent doggo is always hard at work digging up stories for independent agencies, with some occasional breaks for fetch, walks on the beach and treats. For her canine communications contributions, we’ve awarded her the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Roy Elvove Award for Achievement in PR.

When it comes to inspiring creatives, Rosie is a Riveter. While she’s stuck at home for now, she’s looking forward to once again walking the halls of SRG Boulder in a joint role as security and creative muse. Here’s hoping that’s not too far off. We’ve awarded Rosie the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Creative Companion Award.

Speaking of creative inspiration, St. Louis agency Moosylvania is home to a musical muse of a dog named Doc. Doc inspired co-workers a fundraiser called JustFurrFunn in which the agency commissioned 17 musicians to write an original album of dog-inspired songs in support of animal shelters nationwide. For this act of musical inspiration and because this dog kind of looks a bit like Jerry Garcia, we’ve awarded Doc the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Jerry Garcia Award for Musical Inspiration. Keep on truckin’ Doc.

Like people, some dogs just seem to have smiles that leave it impossible not to smile back. Oh wait, dogs are people. Anyway, Charlie over at Huge is a golden retriever with a big, gregarious smile that’s impossible not to love. If you’re having a tough day take a look at this guy and you can’t help but feel a little better. We can’t imagine a more worthy recipient award for the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Most Contagious Smile Award. We understand he’s also quite good at fetch.

Charlie isn’t the only top dog at Huge. Described as “the best networker in all of Brooklyn” for her practice of stopping dogs and humans alike to display her belly, she’s the winner of the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Bellyrub Networker award.

As evidenced by the previous round of winners, we are quite fond of our rescue pups. On the opposite coast, Sophie calls Los Angeles agency Reach home and has forged a special bond with her team. Acting as Paw-risedent of the agency, she has been the heart of Reach since Gabe Gordon first adopted her. We’ve named Sophie the winner of the AgencySpy Dog of the Year Heart and Soul Award for her deep connection to the agency.
Heart and Soul Award:
Meet Sophie, the heart of @reachagencyla.
After signing our first client @purina, our co-founder @gabegordon adopted Sophie. She has a special bond with our team, so now she’s technically Paw-resident of the company! (See what we did there?) @agencyspy #AgencySpyDOTY pic.twitter.com/bjQYIbU7LX
