On The Job With Duke!

Yesterday morning, we loaded the pups in the truck with us and headed to work. Lucy spent the day with her Daddy, and Duke spent the day with me! I just love having the big guy here to keep me company, and of course, to protect me!

Once a month, my Mom & Dad come down to Pittsburgh. My dad is receiving some kind of injections to help him with the back problems that he's having. While it's a horrible reason to have to come to Pittsburgh, they usually swing by the store to visit me, so I get to spend an hour or so chatting with them which I otherwise wouldn't be able to do. Yesterday was that day! Duke was so happy to see his Grandparents! He was so excited that his enthusiasm was impossible to contain for the first 10 minutes that they were here!

I'm usually the one behind the camera, so I don't have that many pictures of myself with the kids! Yesterday when Duke plopped down on my lap, my mom couldn't resist taking a picture of me with my "lap dog"! I love it! As you can see, he doesn't quite fit on my lap, but that doesn't deter him!

My parents aren't quite used to my wild kids, and my mom told me yesterday that she thinks Duke looks like he wants to eat her.... What this sweet face? He's a big love bug! I'm pretty sure it's just the size of his head that makes her think this way.

Duke settled down shortly after my parents left, he curled up at my feet by the heater and took a nap. Then he helped me eat some carrots at lunch time. We took several walks to take full advantage of the 60 degree weather and sunshine that was here yesterday. By 8:00, he was more than ready for his Daddy and Lucy to come pick us up. He was so ready, that he ran straight to the door, and waited! I can't lie and say that I wasn't ready to go home and see Rob and Lucy too!

I must say that I feel very lucky to be able to bring my boxers on the job with me! It's always great to spend the day hanging out with either one of them!


  1. Sounds like you had a great day with Duke and your parents! That's a great picture of you two!

  4. Really nice picture of you and Duke. Isn't it funny what people who aren't used to dogs say about them? Duke looks like he'd just melt in any one's arms, not eat them!!

  5. I would love a job where I could bring my chi's to work with me. The building I work in, there's a guy who brings his dog every day. I think s/he must be some kind of service dog but I don't ever see her/him wearing a vest so maybe not. I used to see the dog regularly last semester but haven't seen him at all this semester.

  6. Yes, that is the coolest thing ever, doggies at work and Boxers are so friendly. Love your pic with should get more of them..just ask unsuspecting peeps to usually works. Duke is a sweetheart just look at that face. Cheers!
