Fenway Goes To Work

I negotiated a new job two weeks ago.  One of the things on my list of must-haves?  Fenway had to be allowed in the office.  Daily.

Fenway - I Take My Dog To WorkFenway likes to go to work.  He is a working breed, after all, and he hates to be left alone.  My sister refers to him as my third child and I don’t necessarily disagree.  Fenway makes new friends everywhere he goes and there’s rarely anyone who doesn’t love him.  I have a co-worker already referring to himself as Uncle-Greg.  Of course, there’s also one referring to Fenway as “that dog”, but I guess not everyone can be puppy crazy like I am.

He spends most of the day laying under my desk or napping in my car (windows down – I would never leave him in a hot car).  If I move around the office, he follows me.  When I sit back down, so does he.  He’s my shadow, a constant companion.

Maybe I’m more of a dog person than a people person.

  1. I must say, I completely agree with you on the dog girl. Call me crazy but I love my dogs as if I gave birth to them. They are my family & my best friends. I never had a dog like your Fenway up until recently. Her name was Ladybug. She was a Border Collie/Kelpie mix. Gorgeous girl & all mine. She was my therapy dog but my buddy. Wherever I would go, so would she. She would snuggle me & take care of me, be by my side after my surgery and be very gentle about it even to make sure I didn’t hurt. And, if I did, she would crawl up to my face, nudge me gently letting me know she was there, & kiss me as if saying it will all be ok. I recently had to put her down due to an untreatable illness. However, all my dogs are my family. I spoil them rotten. Go on being the crazy dog girl…we have a special club, all our own!

    I think you just described me. I don’t have kids yet, but I already refer to our dogs are our kids. I’m definitely more of a dog person than people person 🙂

    I am so with you! I love my dog more than most people! You are so lucky to have your furry BFF with you every day! The people in your office are lucky to. I bet Fenway brightens everyone’s day and relieves stress.
