Copeland’s pig/dog/goat thing

18 Apr

The question I get asked most often about Copeland is not who our clients are, or what we look for in an employee.

It’s: What’s with the sheep on the bike in your website? Or is it a pig?

The critter is actually Tom Hammarberg’s updating of the old Copeland dog, cross-bred with several farm animals.

He’s…it’s…riding a bike (downhill) because we think working with an agency should be an easy, exhilarating experience.

Tom recently gave the pig/dog/goat another reason to be riding like mad on his bike. As you can see here.

Nice when the cherry blossoms are back in bloom. Even when you are being hounded by zombies.

    Calgary, Schmalgary (re: snow / e-mail) — it was snowing all over So. Ont. yesterday! Help! (Why did I leave Hong Kong again?)
    P.S., thanks for clearing up the critter mystery.

    PS – and I know it was all over because I had to drive 3 hours in a blizzard from bloomin’ grandma’s house 😛

    Isn’t that a zombie goat? or a zombie dog?
    Must me a zombie dog as he rides away from the fire hydrant.

    Technically it will be neither until the zombie catches it and eat parts of it, which you’ll note Tom has made very unlikely. In that case it would be a Zombie pig/dog/goat. Well, that’s just more technical stuff Mike.

    Pedal faster doggie!
    (I still submit that it is a dog due to the lack of cloven hooves. Maybe it’s a sheepdog?)

    Amy only Tom knows for sure and he isn’t telling. It looks most like one of Lola’s stuffies. Don’t know when Tom stole it though.

    you’re too funny….my opinion..your pig/dog/goat…looks like a bear.

    Well that’s intentional Petra, because when you put a pig, a dog and a goat in a blender, you end up with a bear, everyone knows that.

    Perhaps the pig/dog/goat/bear should ride toward the blue bridge then quickly dart onto the vehicle section. Considering the zombie’s slow reaction time, he’s likely to fall into the harbour now that the pedestrian bridge has been raised.

    Excellent point. Do we want to clog the Inner Harbour with zombie corpses however? This is the real question.

    Even though your goal with social media is to drive
    more traffic to your business, you must earn the right to promote your products and services by building rapport and once people perceive that you are trustworthy, they are
    much more likely to be interested in what you
    have to offer. First I learned about which is a great FREE Twitter software tool that allows you to post not only to Twitter but you
    can add Facebook, Linked – In and Ping. Look into ways you
    can satisfy your fan’s needs by creating a real buzz about the event you’re throwing or
    product you’re unveiling. * I promise you that you have never seen anything like this before in your life.

    These articles, if well-written, can get you much needed traffic to your website.
    Are you buying a new couch or writing a report on the effects of social media marketing.

    This caused me to investigate automated Twitter Software that
    would take care of many of my Twitter tasks. * I promise you that you have never
    seen anything like this before in your life.
