Take Your Dog to Work Day

Take Your Dog to Work Day

Today is take your dog to work day. For me, it’s just a normal day, because every day in my life is “take your dog to work day”. So today I thought it would be fun to share with you what a typical day at work in my family’s custom frame shop looks like for me.

After the car is parked I make the grueling trek from the parking lot to the shop – and in the winter this means through the snow, and it’s slightly up hill too! I keep telling mom I need a shuttle, I mean seriously, these conditions are terrible!

Once inside I do my morning stretches to get ready for the day. 8 hours of work does it’s tole on you!

Before the shop opens for the day I find the optimal position to greet customers (belly side up for maximum belly rubs).

Sometimes I get bored of waiting by the front door so I have to move around a bit in order to get enough belly rubs to keep me going throughout the day.

By mid-morning I usually get a burst of energy so I sometimes shred things, or bark at mom until she gives me something to chew on.

Then it’s back to the shop door to watch for any dogs walking by that I can bark at.

If it’s a good day, then there will be a good stream of people stopping by that I can wag my tail at, and beg for food.

On slow days I just turn into a sloth and sleep the day away in the backroom.

Well, that is unless mom puts me to work filing paperwork. Sigh.

Then before I know it, it’s time to pack it all up and head home for the day.

I always look forward to the car ride home because when I get home…..

    Oh Ammo, you definitely have a tough job what with barking at digs, begging for treats or belly rubs and protecting your mom. Good job.

    Have you complained to the Doxie union about your working conditions?

      Call Schnitzel the Wonder Wiener and file a grievance…

    Ammo…. are you training Baby P yet?? Maybe you can make her do all the tedious tasks like filing…. and I definitely think mom and dad should get you a shuttle. Or maybe you could Uber from your car to the shop
