Between long hours of sun bathing and constantly trolling the office for snacks, our office bulldog, Arnold can be pretty hard to chase down. But recently, we were able to lay down with the local office celebrity to hear his picks of the 2018 Fur Fly club. Ranging from his furry friends that spend glorious days on the boat kissing redfish, to fellow expert snack swipers, avid tennis ball chasers, and wave chasers -- read on to meet Arnold's round up of the 2018 Fur Fly club.

And I live for the moments where I can steal ALL of the snacks in the office when our staff naively leaves me alone when they go out for team lunches. (Silly humans...)
