Working For a Company That Fully Supports Being a CDP
Welcome to our “Team Series.” A big part of working with WhatArmy is your relationship with your account manager. Aside from being WordPress & Shopify experts, our team is made up of some amazing and kooky individuals. This month we’d like you to meet Nicole Cormier & her sidekick Bitterman!
You may have clicked this post because you’re wondering, what does CDP stand for? Is it a disease? Is it something serious? Do I have it? These are all fair questions. I’m here to tell you my story.
“I am Nicole, and I am a Crazy Dog Person (CDP)”.
It all started at a very young age. Growing up, my family has always had a canine companion by our side, whom I had called my brother/sister on numerous occasions, without batting an eye. My mom (the original CDP) was and continues to be the “craziest” dog person I personally know. When I say crazy, I say this in the best and most loving way possible. She has shown me how to properly house train a dog, how to cook up a gourmet doggie meal and what to give for an upset belly (spoiler alert: it’s pureed organic pumpkin). I am happy to say that after bringing home my dog Bitterman I have wholeheartedly accepted my title as a CDP.
Luckily for Bitterman and I, WhatArmy has always fully supported me as a crazy dog person. One of the best perks of working here is that I am able to work from home. This allows me to properly “helicopter-mom” Bitterman on a daily basis. I am able to spend more time focusing on my work, rather than worry about what mischief my pup is up to throughout the day. I feel very grateful WhatArmy is able to provide this type of work environment for Bitterman and me.
Now you may be asking yourself, how do I know if I too am a CDP? Well, you are in luck, because I have provided 5 warning signs below:
- You thank strangers who compliment your dog on their cuteness.
Even though it’s biologically impossible to give birth to a dog, you immediately say thank you, because clearly, your dog is the purest reflection of you.
- You celebrate your dog’s birthday every year with hats, doggie cake and presents.
You may have even had to shamelessly bribe them with treats until you got the perfect birthday photo. But in the end, it was all worth it.
- You set up Facetime calls with your dog and their friends.
Your dog has friends too. And sometimes they want to chat…via Facetime.
- You immediately created an emoticon of your dog upon finding out Slack allows custom emoticons. Because you know your dog’s emoticon will be timeless and work for any occasion.
- You can’t imagine your life without them.
Bitterman may destroy my socks, constantly beg for my food, and kick me in the face while I sleep, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. People who love dogs value loyalty, love and companionship. We understand that dogs bring out the best in us and we would do anything for our furry family members.
