If I Took My Dogs To Work

One of my bestest internet friends, Ariel, gets to take her Sassy to work, and I think that is about the coolest thing ever. In fact, if I am not mistaken, dogs at work was one of the reasons she ended up a dog owner--she fell in love with a co-worker's Boston Terrier.

Anyway, I was thinking of what it would be like if I took my dogs anywhere to work with me, and I can't do it without laughing. Tootie and Cooper would not be good @work hounds. Here's how the day would go:

Upon arrival Tootie would enter the room at full speed, then proceed to give hearty, I'm-going-to-climb-up-to-your-face love to anyone willing to take the full-on assault. Cooper would run around sniffing and whining.

Day 20: Project 365

Anytime anyone spoke on the telephone, Tootie would come sit in front of them and stare. As if they were talking to her. God forbid anyone have an important discussion while Cooper is sleeping, because he would, if he were at my work, let out a loud, reverberating moo, much like the noise cattle makes. If you've never heard a dog moo in its sleep, well, it can be distracting.

There would have to be outside time, because if not Tootie would stand at the door or window, whichever, and bark. Incessantly. At lunch she would spend the entire half hour on her back two, hopping around with her front paws in the air checking out everyone's spread. If you gave her a bite of sandwich, she would not mind. If you did not, that would be okay, she would find some of your important documents and eat those instead.

If there was a couch or large chair, Cooper would sit on the back of it, like a cat. He would not tear the couch up, as he is light and nimble, but it is still unacceptable office behavior. If I brought a rawhide to keep them occupied, Tootie would stalk around with her chew in her mouth, making guttural growling sounds if Cooper dares near her. She would then wolf the treat down in record time, then lay panting in the floor with an audible belly ache.

They would fight. They would hump at each other unsuccessfully. It wouldn't be that awesome, I don't think.

But Brittney, nobody at your workplace would ever be stressed out again. They'd be too busy laughing (and trying to make it to the bathroom as a result of their laughing).

I just can't see any downside to it. Unless somebody's allergic or has a very very bad fear of dogs. That would be it.

I would give anything to have a dog to moo under the table during particularly soul-sucking meetings.

Hope you all are well and resting and feeling good. We love ya!

But they sure would love being around their mommy all day!

The funny thing? When I show up at work I too give hearty, I'm-going-to-climb-up-to-your-face love to anyone willing to take the full-on assault as well. My lawyers tell me to cut it out but what can I say, I'm all about the climb-up-to-your-face love.

We have two office dogs at my company. Surprisingly, they acclimate VERY quickly. They completely ignore those of us who do as instructed (meaning, we don't give them treats), and basically follow those who cheat around all day.

Depends - some pee on the wall, sniff crotches and leave nuggets for the intern to clean up - parental guidance makes having dogs at work... work!

My dog's a service dog, so for her, every day is take your dog to work day (plus right now I'm pretty much exclusively working from home)- but a day at the office with your dogs sounds like fun! Take your dog to work day is great, but I think most dogs are more than happy to stay home and sleep most days.

This gives me happy thoughts of being able to bring my kitty to work and let him take a nap and purr in my lap as I type at the computer. Unless we're talking Starbucks work, in which case he'd probably be really scared of the steam wands.

Which reminds me to thank you for linking my Starbucks blog and calling the anonymous haters "bitter bitches." I loved you anyway, but it's possible that I just crossed the line into chick-crushdom.

I'm just always so glad to know I don't have the only dog that moos in the world. Whatever Dobie's paternal heritage is (that I have never known) must be the same as some of Cooper's, heh.
