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.
Meet Gladys Karina, a program manager at X, Alphabet's moonshot factory. Originally from Ecuador, Gladys Karina is pictured wearing a toquilla woven straw hat, a traditional Ecuadorian art. “Knowing where I come from is a key part of knowing who I am and what I stand for. No matter how difficult the obstacle, I know that I do not stand alone. Supported by the strength of our forefathers and inspired by the potential of our descendants, our cultural heritage is a beautiful ode to our history and a lighthouse for our future. We all are living legacies." #HispanicHeritageMonth

We're feeling on top of the world! #StreetView is celebrating a major milestone today by traveling the furthest north we’ve ever been, to Quttinirpaaq National Park in Nunavut, Canada—about 500 miles south of the North Pole.
Originally from Mexico City, Alberto is now an industrial design creative lead for Hardware at our Mountain View headquarters. Above he’s holding an original molcajete from his grandma, a tool used to make salsa from scratch. On his work, he says, “Growing up in a vibrant city with a mix of cultures (the hyper-modern and the ancient traditions co-existing), shaped my method of problem-solving and tackling challenges. One of the most interesting challenges of my job is translating Google’s brand values—being “approachable,” for example—into physical objects.” #HispanicHeritageMonth
The story of the Agoraphobic Traveller, known on Instagram as @streetview.portraits, is even more amazing than her photos. Though her condition prevents her from travelling, she uses #StreetView to visit and capture photos of remote places in parts of the world that have always fascinated her. #SearchOn
