PetMeds® Welcomes Chief Barketing Officer

Pawsitively Groundbreaking: PetMeds® Welcomes New Canine Chief Barketing Officer Bagel the Corgi Snags Coveted Role, Becomes Official Top Dog at PetMeds®, Earning a Plush Bed on the Org Chart.

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — PetMed Express, Inc. (NASDAQ: PETS), Your Trusted Pet Health Expert®, today announced the hire of their Chief Barketing Officer, marking a paw-some milestone at PetMeds® as a canine joins the company’s prestigious C-suite!

Bagel, a charming 3-year-old Corgi hailing from Wisconsin, paw-sitively impressed everyone with his stunning application. Dressed to the nines, Bagel showcased his professionalism, creativity, and undeniable cuteness, proving he's not just a pretty face.

Bagel, named after his human's carb obsession (he's got a little sis named Pita, too!), is ready to sniff out quality and fetch some serious inspiration for pets and their devoted paw-rents. He's drooling with anticipation overeating into PetMeds profits and can't wait to strut his paws in Florida for a face-to-tail meeting with the PetMeds® team.

"Securing this gig has been a wild roller coaster! Bagel is beyond thrilled to be the Chief Barking Officer at PetMeds®, " says Bagel's ecstatic paw-rents. "It's an experience of a lifetime, and Bagel gives it two paws up!"

As part of an epic contest hosted by PetMeds® that had tails wagging from coast-to-coast, dogs from all over had a chance to win the ultimate prize: $10,000, the coveted title of Chief Barketing Officer, a fully funded trip to sunny Delray Beach, Fla., and a year's worth of VIP gift boxes and televet appointments.

"If I am going to be replaced by a dog, I couldn’t imagine a more qualified canine than Bagel,” says Dan Pingree, Chief Marketing Officer at PetMed Express, Inc. “Bagel has already proposed major improvements to the team including replacing line graphs with bone charts and hosting a game of “Pin the Tail on the Corgi” as our first team morale event!”

In his new role, Bagel will put his talents and insatiable appetite to good use, helping unleash creative campaigns, try out the latest toys and indulge in various taste tests.
