Frida is thought to have been born in Querétaro, Mexico even though her birth certificate has never been found. She was homeschooled and has certifications as a helper dog and as a runner of obstacle courses. Through years of campaigning, she has transformed Live Lingua’s offices into animal-friendly environments.

She was found on the street at 3 months of age just a few blocks from Live Lingua’s headquarters in Querétaro. After winning a battle with parvo virus, she took her place as a full-time staff member of Live Lingua in 2012. She is one of the hardest workers on the Live Lingua staff. Her responsibilities include greeting all visitors to the office, cleaning any pieces of food that may have "accidentally" fallen off the staff's desks, and making sure the couches in the staff rec room are kept warm.

In her free time, Frida likes to chase tennis balls and frisbees – the dirtier the better She can be seen playing with children in local park or at charity functions where she keeps kids with disabilities company. When not hard at "work" she can be found sleeping with the remains of her favorite toy, Mr. Rope.

Having Fun.

What else is there to life? I wake up every morning ready to play and have fun with those around me. My primary job here at Live Lingua is to make sure the staff feels like they are having fun, after all, life is too short to do something all day that is not fun. My tasks vary, but generally, involve bringing balls to people at their desks so they can throw them, or bringing a rope so they can play tug a war with me.

Having fun also means being healthy. I like to think I help the staff with this as well. Not only do they burn calories by chasing me around the office, I also "help" them by sneaking into their lunch bags and stealing the unhealthy food they have in there (whether they ask me to or not)! I love my job and am inspired every day to come to the office ready to give my all.

Super Fast Tail Wag. All dogs wag their tails, but I can do it so fast it pretty much disappears. And if you happen to get in the way of my tail while it is wagging you may end up with a bruised leg!

Acrobatic Ball Catching. I have photos to prove it. I can catch a ball that somebody throws me from far away. Sometimes I have to do acrobatic jumps and flips to catch it... but for me that is no problem.

Ability To Sleep Anywhere. Comfort is secondary. I can sleep in any position in almost any place. It does not even matter if somebody else is in that spot when I get there. I just sleep on top of them.

Can't Smell. I know what you are thinking. "You're a dog, all dogs can smell!". Well, for me it is not true. Ask Ray and Laura. I can run right by a ball I am looking for in the park and not smell it. I like to look with my eyes... but I also have awful eyesight.

I hate fireworks. But not the kind that fly in the sky and explode. Those don't bother me. I hate the ones that kids light and they make a loud exploding noise. I always start trembling when I hear those.

I never clean up after myself. I know I should, but I just can't be bothered. After spending an afternoon destroying a new box, I just leave the pieces where they fall. When I get bored with a ball I just let it drop. Sorry, I can't help it.

I hate vegetables.

Now this may come as a surprise to people who know me since it seems like I eat everything... and I mean everything. I eat dirt, cardboard boxes, stones and pretty much anything I can get in my mouth. But vegetables is where I draw the line. Those are just awful.

Especially broccoli!
