Official Personhood Status

I was putting Lomax’s puppy jacket on him outside the building this morning when a co-worker breezed past. He was talking on his cell phone, but nodded in acknowledgment and shot out a quick morning greeting:

“Hi guys.”

Would it have been the plural if I’d been accompanied by a cat? A parrot? A monkey? A hamster? Or is it just Lomax’s job that makes him seem more like another person?
