Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

I have a black Lab named Gunnar

Do you have a favorite story you want to share about your pet(s)?

What I like about working at Trupanion:  

Unique atmosphere. People are encouraged to be themselves, almost to a fault. Instead of forcing people into a mold, Trupanion embraces each person as an individual and doesn’t try to force them to fit a corporate-defined personality.
