    Sure wish I could take my dog(s) to work, but prohibited by law. Sigh.

  2. Victoria says:

    i love your office staff!!! Eko is so cute.

  3. That is so cool, In the UK they don’t really like accommodating the dog. If I owned a company I would have a doggy day care center there 🙂

    Lol. What an amazing office and workers you have:) Your posts are always the best.

  5. Hey Eko, Jet here. Hi Mr. Will.

    If only … says Mom! When the boss’s wife brings her K9s in occasionally, Mom tries to get some fur time, however, they frown on it. 🙁

    Eko looks pretty smart in those glasses!

    Will, sort of off-topic but how do you feel about introducing the wrong people to the breed? I have RR’s and when they’re in public… well, I’m sure you know the constant stream of people asking what breed, etc. I always feel guilty when someone who clearly is a terrible fit for the breed asks about them. They just see the happy, intelligent, well behaved “working” side, and not the countless hours of training, patience, and occasional calamity required to raise and live with one. It bugs me to think consumer types might go obtain one, get frustrated, and tie it up in their backyard or something. I’m probably sounding really condescending, just can’t think of a better way to word it. Have any tips for handling questions from the public?

  8. Very cool! I’d like to see photos of the winning entries!

  9. We nominated you for an Inspiring Blog Award. http://bit.ly/VPAHiw If you don’t do awards, just consider it our way of showing appreciation for your blog and introducing other bloggers to you! 🙂

  10. I’ll bet Eko is the best photograph of the world ;o) Sadly my mom is a (desperated?) Housewife and my dad has his own office, so we can’t participate, I think. But I try to get my own office ;o)

  11. this dog is amazing! 😀

    Love the video and the pics…right up mom and my alley! We used to be in the office but that was in Germany, now we are at work with mom most of the time but it is her home office or the car, so those don’t count. She loves working from home and we love hanging out with her all the time. Just me, I have to work on my blog and social media but she is always nearby! Great post!
