We wanted to take a moment to introduce you to the pets of Vivid Image that bring excitement, enthusiasm, the occasional frustration, and continual laughter to our lives!
Charlie is a sleepy cat who is always looking for a good place to nap. He has some weird habits including dunking his whole body into the water bowl to drink and rolling around in dirt when he is outside! He makes up for all his weird quirks by being extremely affectionate and snuggly. Charlie’s human is Katie Schmidt, Graphic Designer
Cooper, Etta, Bonnie & Clyde
We like to joke that Cooper needs a new custody lawyer because Etta, Bonnie, and Clyde are all his offspring. When this crew of Deutsch Drahthaars isn’t out on guided (or unguided) hunting adventures, they can be found wrestling for the best toy in the house or curled up on the slew of dog beds that occupy every room. This crew’s human is Britt Buxcel, Content Marketing Strategist.
Meet Smokey! She loves exploring during the day but is a homebody come night time. She loves to sit in windows and curl up in a lap under the covers. Smokey’s also got a wicked side-eye and always looks like she is judging everyone in the room. Her human is Ciera Cronen, Content Marketing Strategist.
Roxie & Mable
Roxie is the smallest dog you’ll ever meet. It’s nearly impossible to ride a four wheeler, mow the lawn or do anything without her on our lap. Mable is a cat who has no problem interrupting anything we’re doing for a few pets and snuggles. Roxie and Mable’s human is Cegi Wassman, Project Manager
Walter is very good at hiding and makes it obvious that he only loves our daughter, Miya. Walter’s human is Miya
Cegi Wassman, Project Manager
Hazel is afraid of everyone, even if she has met you 100 times before. But, Beware – She is willing to steal anyone’s pillow while they’re asleep. Hazel’s human is Cegi Wassman, Project Manager
Lucy is a German Shorthaired Pointer who is high-energy and constantly on the move! She loves being outside in all kinds of weather. Lucy loves a good game of fetch, going for walks, and is passionate about hunting all sorts of animals; her brother Fozzy the cat, mice, squirrels, snakes, and, most of all, pheasants. Lucy’s human is Kristal Ehrke, Senior Account Director
Milo is a 1 1/2 year old German Shorthaired Pointer with a very big personality. His favorite thing is to go for rides on the side-by-side and can usually be found sitting on the driver’s seat ready to go. Milo loves chasing cats and birds and has an amazing talent for shredding blankets into long thin strips. Milo’s human is Shannon Streich, Graphic Designer
Abe is a 90 pound chocolate lab who thinks he’s a lap dog. He is happiest in a truck, boat, or running around the farm and loves when mom sneaks him food under the table (shh… don’t tell dad). Abe’s human is Lindsey Schwecke, Account Director
Lucy & Flower
Lucy & Flower are siblings who typically spend their day cuddling and destroying the toilet paper rolls in the house. Their favorite toys are hair bands & Q-tips. Flower is a “liquid cat” who is comfortably and easily squeezed into small spaces. Lucy wants to be friends with everyone. Their human is Amanda Caven, Digital Marketing Strategist

Goldie, Whitey, Dude, Kashlee, Big Murray, and too many to name
These goldfish, straight from Walmart, are avid swimmers. While they winter in the warmer temps of the house, fish spend their summers outside in the pond. There were originally only four fish, and there are now 28. Their human is Deanna Schwint, Programmer
Meika is an American Eskimo who loves to chew on everything & prefers cat toys over dog toys. She demands all the attention & loves apples. Her owners love snuggling with her, but the puppy instincts won’t allow her to chill out for very long. Meika’s human is Amanda Caven, Digital Marketing Strategist
Otis & Wilson
Otis, who is lovingly referred to as “shut-up-you-stupid-cat” spends his time meowing and eating. His expertise includes letting himself out the dog door to lounge in the backyard.

Their human is Kori Sanders, Vice President
Runty & Big Guy
Big Guy is such a good cat and has a strong preference for Beth. Runty is a naughty cat who has made a sport of tipping over water glasses and licking people while they sleep. She snores loudly and has a propensity of climbing in the shower with humans when she hears the water running. Her favorite past-time is sitting with her mouth under a facet catching water drops. Runty prefers Steve. Their humans are Steve & Beth Gasser, Owners

Excellent photobomb Emmy! This is Fozzy, an outdoor cat who has a way of showing up in the kitchen on occasion and walking around like he lives there. None of his owners has any idea how he gets in and can testify the door was closed. It has led them to believe Fozzy has the unique ability to turn door knobs. Fozzy’s human is Kristal Ehrke, Senior Account Director
