Sunday Black and White - Dogs at Work

But why can't I go to "work" with you?

I can eat all the food that everyone forgets in the back of the lunchroom fridge

I can bark at people from the guard shack that I don't recognize

I can sniff the packages that come through the x-ray machine in the lobby

I can help the attorney's in the building and then bill in dog hours

I can do undercover investigations.
I can work in tech support and delete your cookies and carefully check the SPAM

Save on janitor costs:  No more crumbs on the floor

Need that report, another coffee pod or a pen?  Can you say "fetch"
I can "think outside the box"

Meetings won't last too long because I have to go "out!"

then "in". . . . then "out"

I can be part of trials and hearings.

When the boss says "you really dropped the ball here" I can go find it!

You can get rid of the shredder

You need more work space?  I can re-negotiate your leash

You already have a "lab" at work, what's one more
and finally:

Squirrel interrogatories!


  1. Hari OM
    All fair and valid arguments, Abby. I'd rule in favour!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. We think Abby has clearly made an excellent case for going to work with mom!

  3. OMD those are all such valid points Abby...wonder why we don't all gets to go to work wif our pawrents??

    Matt & Matilda

  4. Abby, you win the judgement!!! Off to work you go!!!

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  5. that are super good reason to go to work with your mom... and I'm sure a payment in greenies would be pawsome too

  6. Some of the many reasons Choppy likes to go to work! Unfortunately, we moved offices so now she only gets to go to work on days when I work at home.

  7. Let me know if this works! I've been trying to convince Momma to let me go to the work place with her for YEARS!

  8. What! You mean you aren't allowed to go to work with your Mom, Abby Lab? Heresy (I don't know what that is but it sounded good.) ~Xena
