Every day is take your dog to work day…

Today is the official “take your dog to work day.” But, every day is take your dog to work day…when you work from home.

 Every day is take your dog to work day...

Maddie and Izzie – on “their” sofa in my home office.
They tell me possession is nine tenths of the law.

For good or bad, when you work from home, your dogs are right there, helping you through your work load each and every day.

Pros:

  • Dogs aren’t alone all day.
  • No expensive doggy day care.
  • Cute fuzzy faces to look at while working.
  • Taking a mid-day play break with the dog is better than any coffee break I ever took in an office.

Cons:

  • In their minds, ANY time is the right time for playing ball.
  • Why wouldn’t you give them snacks every time you walk past the kitchen?
  • If I’m working away from my desk they don’t understand why my laptop sometimes gets priority over them on my lap.
  • Dogs snoring in unison is conducive to really focusing on what you are doing.

All kidding aside, I’m glad I can be home and around my dogs more than if I worked in an office 40 hours per week. As I’ve said before, my two dogs can be bottomless pits of need, but I love ’em.

Do you work from home? Or if you work in an office, are you allowed to bring your dog in to work on occasion?

    I wish I could work from home; that’s my goal. Until then, I take the day off to work on my blog from home with the dogs all around me 🙂

    Great post!

      Thanks! Could you do your regular job from home on occasion? Or does your work not allow that?

        I wish, but nope.

    Mom works from home most of the time and we all love it. The only issue is that when she is on the phone I always seem to find something to bark at but that is not all that bad she says. She has had a few jobs where she was gone all day. We survived better than she did I think! Working from home is the best!

      Yes! My dogs used to have issues when I was on the phone too. Sometimes it was almost like they got jealous that I was talking to someone else they couldn’t see. Now they don’t care. When they were little I worked in an office, but now I love being a freelancer so I can be home with them.
