four-legged staff

Here are BCM, we love our pet companions! They all help us do our best work. Meet them below.


Ember was bred to be a sled dog in northern Minnesota but an insatiable appetite for belly rubs and an imperfect gait forced her into early retirement. Nowadays she spends her free time tearing up the Duluth trails.




Weighing in at 16 pounds, Pawsgraf is the resident CHONK of BCM’s feline crew. He spends most of his days sleeping in sunbeams or wandering off into alternate dimensions- you know, normal cat things. When he isn’t sleeping or time traveling, he can be found zooming around the house (usually between the hours of 2am and 4am), playing with his dog sister, or silently judging you from his chair in the living room. An avid gardener, Pawsgraf takes great pride in the patio garden his Moms have and will often go out to do some pruning (mostly unauthorized) to “help out.”

Stella & Nixta

Prepare for trouble, and make it double! This daring duo yearns for adventure and exploration. From sand to snow, they make the best adventure buddies! Stella’s favorite activity is running through snow and playing brain games while Nixta loves begging for snacks and forgetting what she just learned. They love to play and socialize with everyone they meet but can also cuddle the day away on the couch. Still young and with many years ahead, these two have many more adventures to come!
