Meet Lady, assistant party planner and one of our many #DogsOfTrue!
Name: Lady Lou Martin
Person: Taylor M., HR
Job title: Festivities Lead – I help Taylor plan all True’s theme days and parties.
(Working hard from Taylor’s lap, I swear.)
Time at True: 1 year, 6 months
Best Dog Friend: Oakley!
Favorite True moment: My favorite True moment didn’t actually happen at True but with my best friend from True, Oakley. We spent a weekend at my cabin in Shelton, Washington this summer, swimming and sunbathing the entire time. Oakley is terrifically athletic! I’m a little jealous…
(That’s Oakley swimming.)
(I prefer boating myself.)
Favorite activity: Snuggling, sleeping and hanging out with my humans.
(My humans are almost as pretty as I am! That’s Taylor, second from the left.)
Signature trick to get attention: Playing dead – everyone always pulls out their cameras to film me, they’re so impressed by my acting talents.
(How could you not want this face on film?)
Worst trouble I ever got into: One day my brother, Tristan the chocolate lab, knocked a huge unopened bag of pepperoni sticks down from the kitchen counter while my humans were out. When they came home they found me lying on the ground with the very last pepperoni stick in my mouth – I was so full that the most I could do was suck the juices out. My humans thought I was in a pretty pitiful state as is, so I didn’t get any additional punishment – my tummy was in the biggest trouble!
(I’m in the middle – Tristan is in front, oblivious to the camera.)
Fun fact: My fur used to be sleek and shiny but I had a bad reaction when I underwent anesthesia for a surgery, and it caused my fur to poof out like crazy. This (among a few other things) is why my family calls me Crazy Lady or Donna Pazza!

Meet Taiko, product model extraordinaire and one of our many #DogsOfTrue!
Job Title: Product Model
Person: Val, Marketing Design Manager
Best Dog Friend: Shadow
Time at True: 1 year, 8 months
Favorite True Product: Playful Pup Bottle Holder
Favorite True moment: When we moved into our new office, the first time I got to run around the roof with the other dogs. It was the BEST.
(Left to right: Oakley, Rain, Cedar, me and Rasta. You’ll meet them all soon.)
(That’s Erin in my kennel.)
(I’m very popular.)
Signature trick to get attention: Tripping, bumping into walls.
Worst trouble I ever got into: One time Val went into a meeting without me, so I pulled all the papers off her desk and ate her catalog.
Fun Facts: I’m the only known dog to have failed the guide dog test on clumsiness alone. Here’s what my reviewer said about me:
“Early in training, it was noticed that Taiko lacked coordination and general body control, tripping and even falling on a regular basis, especially on stairs. He was thoroughly examined by our vet and an outside neurology specialist. Though nothing definitive was found during medical testing, his coordination was compared to that of a 6 month old puppy. It was decided that Taiko’s lack of coordination could pose safety issues when guiding a blind client. Due to this, Taiko is being career changed. He is a friendly and affectionate dog who will make a nice addition to a loving family home.”
The entire True team was ecstatic when I failed the test – and I got to come back to Val and True for keeps!
