Take Your Dog to Work Day

How ironic. There’s a whole day devoted to what I get to do all the time. Frankly, I think there should be a take your human to work day though I’m not exactly sure what that would look like. I guess it’s just a reminder of how lucky I am because every day I pretty much go to work with Gretchen and she comes to work with me. Okay, not all of our time is spent together — she’s at the hydrotherapy pool and though I’m more than welcome to come and hang out in the office, I prefer to rest at home especially since I’ve spent the day walking dogs.

Still I have to admit I have a pretty sweet little life.

And today was no exception. We had quite a day yesterday so today’s schedule was a nice reprieve. Just 6 dogs and 4 walks, which was a perfect way to end a busy week.

The first walk was with my buddy Monty. Since we both got coiffed yesterday, Gretchen tried to keep us looking pretty. Therefore as much as we wanted to swim at the lake, she wouldn’t give in.

She walked Rosie and Tyson after that and let me tell you, these are two dogs that would love to go to work with their parents. Lucky for them their parents often work from home so they don’t suffer too much.

Gretchen swung by and picked up Gemma after that and her parents often work from home so she’s not too lonely either. The plan was to pick up Oshi and Perrito so the three of them could hang out, but when Gretchen got to the boys’ house a surprise was waiting for her…well, a surprise written Spanish. Gretchen’s not so good at reading Spanish, but I am so I helped her out. Yep, Oshi and Perrito are the proud uncles (siblings?) of Micah, a baby boy born to their mom early this morning. Congratulations!

Gemma was even happy to celebrate with a group table dance!

After the boys got dropped off, Gemma and Gretchen came by to pick Monty and me up and off we went to play fetch first at the tennis courts…

I thought we’d pick up Saber but he got to go to work with his parents today. Sure hope they raised all their valuables and breakables above his wagging, powerful tail line!

And then we dropped Gemma off while Monty and I played more fetch at the little field!

Whew that was fun and though the sky was gray and kind of cloudy, it was warm. We heated up fast so we got to come back home and rest while Gretchen ate some lunch and got herself ready for her work at the hydrotherapy pool. She asked if I wanted to go along, but frankly staying at home feels like just the kind of change of pace I need!

Hope you all had fun taking your dogs to work! Happy Friday,
