The nation celebrated annual "Take Your Dog to Work Day," today and, undoubtedly, countless employees of stuffy, strict and un-fun companies were forced to leave their pooches at home despite this official designation. As for who designated this particular day (Hallmark?), we hain’t a clue, but we think it’s a great way to kick off the summer.
However, we Muttropolitans are fortunate to designate every day as Take Your Dog to Work Day, as each and every desk here at the Muttropolis World Headquarters has a bed with a dog under it….a dog under the desk that is, not under the bed.
Given that our offices are housed in a building that was built back in the dark ages, we do not have air conditioning, and instead we must hover around small desk fans for relief from the heat. Or, we wait for one of the office dogs to aggressively shake his head after taking a long drink of water, which provides a nice refreshing spritz for bystanders. The office dogs tend to hog the fans and are also quite partial to our Muttropolis Water Filled Cooling Mat.
The office pooches are not always satisfied with simply laying on the floor and lately some have been fighting over the "good beds" and roosting upon desks and our reception chairs. Often, during photo shoots, they argue about who gets to be in the photo, because photo shoot = lots of treats.
Lola, our resident alpha Chihuahua mix, is a veritable Where’s Waldo of all photo shoots. See if you can spot her sneaking into the photo above.
