Take Your Dog to Work Day (Unofficial)

I'm one of those people who are lucky enough to be able to come home for lunch.  This is nice for several reasons. 
  1. It's a short commute to the office. 
  2. I actually get to eat the leftovers we always say we're going to but never do. 
  3. I don't actually need to decide what I'm going to eat until I open the frig door and look inside. 
  4. I get to see my pretty pup. 
Today, I came home for lunch and after I had eaten it was time to head back to the office.  I put on my shoes and grabbed my bag and Winnie looked so sad that I was leaving I couldn't stand myself.  So, I took her to work for the afternoon.  When she saw me get her leash she was all smiles!

So am I an intern now?

She gets to take this dogie field trip about once a month.  I make sure it's a slow day without too much foot traffic or hard deadlines so if there's a problem I can manage it but so far so good. 

What do you mean I'm not getting paid?
Her favorite place to plop was in the hall between my office and my co-workers.  She keeps an eye out this way so she doesn't miss anything. 

Hey!  Don't you have work to do?

And no one could help getting/giving a good scratch.

What can I say?  They love me!
All in all, I love days like today.  :-)

AWWW! She looks like a good office mascot! Technically now Whiskey "comes" to work with me everyday now too. lol Since I work at home. :-) Great pictures! Love her expressions

Dogs need jobs, too. :-) Sometimes I think if they don't have their own they should help with ours... maybe theirs is to help boost the serotonin levels. Which leads to better health and fewer sick days. What do you think? Will anyone buy that?
