WHO’S THAT LADY? Deanna Solakian, an ad designer here at The Indy, took a few minutes to tell us more about her good friend and housemate Halle. Already known well around here for quietly trotting around the office as she pleases, this weimaraner is all geared up and ready for spring. She travels to her favorite place, the beach, in a bike-led buggy that her lifelong owner Peter, Solakian’s boyfriend, recently got for her-all the glorious sand and surf with none of the walking to get there. The distinctly humanlike Halle enjoys many of life’s luxuries, including a down comforter on her own bed, Buffalo brand treats galore, and sniffing the many other Indy office pups. We say live it up, lovely lady.
