Who is Fang?

You might be wondering about our name, Fang Consulting. When I started this company back in 1999, I knew I had to get a URL on the web. All of the good names were taken, as this was near the peak of the web bubble. Finally, in desperation, I typed in my cockapoo Polly’s nickname and sure enough, Fang Consulting was available. Fang.com was taken and I foolishly skipped fang.net, only to have it taken soon after. So, the company was named after my pet cockapoo. Polly passed away in 2013 after a full life, but her nickname lives on.

Today we have Madeline (Maddie), a 15-pound cockapoo. Maddie enjoys coming to work in our office in Northeast Minneapolis. She loves to walk on everyone’s desks and see what they are doing. She is always ready for a walk, so the staff takes turn walking her. If you stop by the office, Maddie will usually be there to greet you.
