Yesterday my office hosted its annual Bring Your Dog to Work Day in support of the American Cancer Society Bark For Life event. The day began with a doggie meet-and-greet, and the dogs hung out around the office throughout the day. We wrapped up the afternoon with an ice cream social, complete with ice cream doggie treats! I didn’t have a pup to bring to the event, but I did get to doggie-sit while one coworker was on a call. It definitely made for a lively day at the office!
Sweet Gracie Belle, a good friend’s dog, had major ACL surgery yesterday. Here’s to hoping she has a quick recovery!
My husband’s aunt breeds and shows these dogs, but this weekend was the first time we got to meet a litter of her pups. These sweet girls were only 4 weeks old. I’ll give you 3 guesses on what breed they are, and you may need all 3 – they don’t look anything like the full-grown dogs!
Ok, little Charlie may be the sweetest. dog. ever. If we ever get a dog, I may have to get a rescue Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Just look at those eyes!
For some reason my husband thinks it’s hilarious to call our friend’s adorable puppy Fluffy Spice. Her real name is Maggie, and she is a tiny 3 pound ball of fluff. She gets so excited, that when she jumps in the air she completely flips over!
I’m not a ‘large dog’ person, but I have to admit that the Great Pyrenees is a beautiful creature. You can tell how big this one is by comparing the size of my husband’s hands to her head. This one is only 9 months old…not even full-grown yet.
This is another shot of Ginger from her impromptu photo shoot on Sunday. What does her facial expression say to you?

You read it right – my office hosted Take Your Dog To Work Day on Friday. We had about fifteen dogs in the office, and for a couple of hours they were all in one room for some festivities. It sounds like complete chaos, but the dogs were on their best behavior at all times. Why did we host Take Your Dog To Work Day? I’m so glad you asked. Our staff wanted to promote a fairly new American Cancer Society event called Bark For Life, which is basically a Relay For Life for dogs. There will be two Bark For Life events in Kansas City this April/May. If you have a dog, you should look to see if there’s a Bark For Life in your area!
