Boss Dog

Excited to meet the original office dog Guinness, I brought bowser beer to share with him. 
We sniffed each other and our noses touched. We sniffed a little more. With formalities taken care of, we slurped our bowls of lager.


Karma at the Fig Tree Cafe

Image
Big dogs lounged under tables; little dogs vied for laps. We walked into the Fig Tree Cafe on a sunny morning, and were surrounded by canine cousins.
Someone was really speaking their mind on the back patio chalkboards, such as 'karma is only a bitch if you are.' I'm not sure how calling someone a female dog became an insult, and can assure you that it's an awesome creature to be.  

Pura Vida

I supervised my person as she assembled the tiny chair.

It was missing something.

We dug through the paper cushioning the parts during their five week journey from Costa Rica, but to no avail. Would the shop send a replacement? Trying not to lose hope, we dug through another box.

Just as it was emptied of the final family members' souvenir, we discovered the final piece of the child-sized seat!

A Tail of Two Hammocks

Image
We lounged in our family-sized hammock, cuddling drowsily in the gentle breeze. 
It started with an ancient hammock with no where to hang from. One day a long box arrived on our porch, and out came a sturdy, inexpensive hammock stand. 


Only one of our people and lil ol me fit in the original one. We needed a bigger hammock!

Caffeinated Boa Constrictor

What's this? A new bed, leash, and toy? A short car ride later, and we were at my human's engineering office for my Office Dog in Training interview.  It was perhaps my first elevator ride and then I was ushered in. 
My mom thought I would nap all day, but I was too excited. I charmed her office mates, but would only lay still if her foot touched me at all times. My true tactic was to keep her chained to her work so that I would be allowed back!  
I shrieked when she left me during a quick bathroom break. Kindly, I did not hackingly try to swallow my chews with the enthusiasm of a caffeinated boa constrictor as I do at home.

Apparently I made the cut, as I was asked back and get to meet my boss, Guinness the OG Office Dog, next week!
