Pucci is our CMO, Chief Morale Officer and all around mascot. Even without opposable thumbs she does double duty around the office keeping our legs warm and spirits high. Her wedding day experience is limited to her stint as the Flower Dog at a friend’s wedding in Rome but she is always out in the field with us in spirit.
