Years before I got Toby, my company tried the whole "bring your dog to the office with you" thing for a while. I don't know specifically where it all went wrong, but I do know that it didn't last long.
Fortunately, my pets are so pampered that they didn't even notice. Take, for instance, yesterday morning when I tucked in the dog and Dr. Jones before I left for work.
Then there's the Italian Greyhound playdate I took Toby on a couple of weekends ago. He's not great with the socializing, but I did coax him into the yard a few times.
Eventually he went full wallflower and removed himself from the proceedings until I took him home. The dog above him on the stairs was similarly over it.
At home, he's spoiled rotten, though. Here he is chilling on the bathroom rug after a long walk.
Inspired by Noodleroux's example, I will now seal my status as crazy pet lady by listing for you the various nicknames that I call Toby.
- Toby Toadstools
- Doggeree, Doggerrah, Doggeree, Doggera-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha (more his theme song than an actual nickname)
- Little Dog Man
And that's just the dog. Imagine what it's like when the five cats get involved! I'm going to go sit down now.
Oh hey, it's not too late to enter to win a Logitech mouse!
