Where in the world is Carmen the #Doogler? We found her at our Pittsburgh office! Rescued in 2009, this sweet pup loves playing fetch (with cat toys), and commuting to the office with her Googler Dad, only to later sleep on his desk.
Meet Marine Veteran Elizabeth Jones, another amazing Google Student Veterans of America scholar. After leaving the corps in 2007, she became an electrical engineer. Today she works as a systems engineer on anti-submarine warfare systems to protect American soldiers at sea. On the scholarship program she says, “Google’s done a lot more for me than just giving me a scholarship. I feel like it really showed me that there are people like me doing great things with their degrees.” #honoringvets
Meet Army Veteran James Matthew Landis. A computer engineer working on healthcare applications for robotics, James is a recipient of the Google Student Veterans of America scholarship—a program to help veterans on their path to attaining a computer science or IT-related degree. He also works at No One Left Behind in Pittsburgh, PA, a national organization dedicated to helping America’s wartime allies and their families resettle safely in the U.S. “We’ve brought in 8 families in our first two months and I’m incredibly proud of our work,” he says. #honoringvets

In case you hadn’t herd, last summer some friendly sheep helped capture imagery of the Faroe Islands for #StreetView. Today, the #SheepView imagery is officially on Google Maps! To this we say, “where there’s a wool, there’s a way.”
Trick-or-treat yourself all the way to Westeros with #Dooglers Gustave and Mieka! Ruling from the Iron Throne in our LA office, these pups dressed as Cersei and Jaime Lannister always know where to find the best snacks in all the Seven Kingdoms.
We can haz your timeline? Taking over Instagram fur #NationalCatDay, we're Mosey and Thunder, two purrfect rescue kittens from the Bay Area. To make room for all our toys, we've sent the #Dooglers on a nice, looong walk.
