Dear LINGUIST List subscribers,
A brief paws from our regular postings for a special announcement: You’ve seen her coyly hiding in blog posts before, but I would like to officially introduce you to the LINGUIST List Office Puppy, Blondie!
Though Gosia and Damir own Blondie, I’m sure the rest of the crew here would agree with me that Blondie has become a beloved member of the larger LINGUIST List family. Who knew coming to work at LINGUIST List could be even more fun?
Here are some fun facts about Blondie to help you get to know her better:
Blondie is a White Shepherd — a breed that is a descendant of German Shepherds, but is most commonly found in Canada and the United States.
Right now, Blondie excitedly plods around with feet that are a little too big for the rest of her body and is still small enough to be picked up (though not without a bit of effort!) but eventually, she will grow to be 60-70 pounds, and two feet tall at her shoulders.
This little cutie loves to be where everyone else does. She is quite the social butterfly and greets everyone, making sure they feel welcome. In her free time she likes to chew on things (like sticks and her toys), and generally look adorable.
She has taken it upon herself to oversee staff meetings. Here is a picture of her in one of our more recent meetings.
Blondie has had a doggone good time hanging out around our office, and has learned a lot about our yearly Fund Drive, which is still going on! All of us here at LINGUIST List would really appreciate you considering donating to help keep LINGUIST List up and running; able to help connect linguists around the world and foster academic growth in the linguistic community.
Blondie repping some LINGUIST List swag!
Please support Blondie’s friends at The LINGUIST List! We need as much help as we can get during Fund Drive 2015. LINGUIST List really needs your support!
Thank you all!
Your LINGUIST Crew
