Take your Dog to Work Day

My mom couldn't get it arranged for me to come with her today. Sigh. She says they're having SNAKES instead because it's 'Catch the Reading Bug' month at the public libraries.

So I thought I'd share photos of when she did take one or two of us to work.


This is Pongo Bongo. He visited when the Summer Reading Club theme was BOOKS AHOY! The mascot for the state was a beagle as a swashbuckling pirate. My mom tried really hard to put an eyepatch on Pongo but he refused.

Here he is so bored. My mom is the computer librarian so she has geeky stuff everywhere.

Another year the theme was 'Get spotted at the library' which, of course, had a DALMATIAN as its main character. So Harley went to work, greeting everybody as they came in the door of the library. Five staff members dressed up as dalmatian 'puppies' with stuffed socks for ears and painted black noses and spots. They had a great time. Here she is with my mom in the library parking lot. Isn't she pretty in her red bow? Maybe next year I'll be able to go to work with her at last. Until then I'll keep dragging her robe down the hall to the couch and waiting for her to come back to me.

That's too bad that you didn't get to go to work AGAIN. Sometimes I hang out at the gallery for a bit, but that makes people not come in and look around because we have to make sure the door is closed instead of leaving it open like Mom usually does. Plus I better not pee on any artwork, lol. Guess what?! There is a new dog at the dogpark! She is a nine-month old beagle that came from the pound just 3 weeks ago. She is really really sweet, and she followed me around just like a mini-me. She didn't make a sound though. I gotta get her used to things, I guess!

That looks like so much fun to go to work with Mom. You guys can be lots of characters. Maybe Harry Potter next??

Yeah, my mom did the Harry Potter stuff too but no dogs were allowed. We need a special dispensation to set foot in the place, pretty mean, I think.

love & wags,

Oh what nice pictures of your friends! I hope that you get to go to work next year with your mom! I bet she'd even let you bring her robe!

I celebrated "bring your person to work" day today!

Hey River, maybe Mum will get the hint if you leave lots of slobber on the red robe .... ;-)

Aww, maybe you should just stalk her and hide in her car trunk!
