Celebrating Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day 2019

We set a resolution for them, they ditch it. We all laugh about it.

We aren’t exactly sure how or when Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day came about but it is a legit day of the year – January 17th, every year – as a simple Google search will confirm.

Since we love silly holidays around here, I asked around the office to see if anyone set any New Year’s Resolutions for their co-woofers/co-meowers and as a matter of fact they did!

Have fun with these and be sure to leave a comment at the end of the post with your dog or cat’s resolution (and their justification for ditching it!)

Co-woofer to Jordan Seto, Marketing Specialist

Jordan’s resolution for Bean: Don’t take so much time sniffing around on the walk from the car to the office.

Bean’s justification to ditch resolution: “I have more p-mail than any other dog and I like to start my day with a cleared inbox so I can focus on other things.”

Zero: Co-woofer to Nicole George, Controller

Nicole’s resolution for Zero: Stop intruding on meetings you haven’t been invited to.

Zero’s justification to ditch resolution: “I have an open invitation to all meetings and even if I wasn’t invited to one, my contributions would more than make up for any momentary distractions.”

Taro: Co-woofer to Lucy Postins, Founder & Chief Integrity Officer

Lucy’s resolution for Taro: Don’t steal people’s unattended lunches from their desk

Taro’s justification to ditch resolution: “Well, for one thing, no one should take so much time eating their lunch that they have to take a break and leave their desk for any reason. I am just teaching them a lesson about food eating efficiency.”

Abba: Co-woofer to Carmen Velasquez, Marketing Director

Carmen’s resolution for Abba: Shed less

Abba’s justification to ditch resolution: “Then what will you name your Instagram?!”

Edgar Allan Paw: Co-meower to Caity Chutuk, Customer Service Representative

Caity’s resolutions for Edgar Allan Paw: Do not scream and howl in the middle of the night and do not puke on my bed.

Edgar Allan Paw’s justification to ditch resolutions: “My human gave me some resolutions to work on this year. At the time I said I would do them because she was holding my dinner, but I will not actually be participating. You see, I only do these things because I love her, and if I didn’t, she may think she wants another cat, which could prove detrimental to the amount of pets and kisses I demand per day. Don’t tell her, or she’ll withhold my Wishes, but I am planning to thwart her at all costs. The screaming and howling in the night resolution: this is really to help her out, so she doesn’t waste my food. All beings outside need to know I’m the sheriff in these parts, so no other cats think they can show up here for a free meal. All of that food is mine. I also sprint back and forth across the length of the house so it sounds like there are 100 of me. I’m helping her in the end. Regarding puking in her bed: how will she know I missed her and I pine for her to come home all day if I don’t leave proof? This way there is no question how much I appreciate her, so she surely won’t need another cat. Again, I’m just looking out for her best interest.”

Dahlia: Co-woofer to Mike Mager, Concierge

Mike’s resolution for Dahlia: Sleep in.

Dahlia’s justification to ditch resolution: “My dad is always saying he wants to sleep in past 6:30am, but why?? There is so much to smell, and see, and explore. And squirrels! Oh, the squirrels. So, I tried on the 1st of January, but it was lame and I can’t let the world pass me by”.
