My office is a dog friendly workplace which is great for everyone who has a dog. I have a cat. Nonetheless it's nice to have furry compadres to visit when I need a snuggle break.
When a new member of the brand marketing team moved into the cube across from me she also brought her black lab, Barney. At first I was a bit skeptical- it's one thing to leave your cube to go visit a dog, it's quite another to have one around all day right across the isle. And Barney didn't make the best first impression- barfing, eating garbage, and wandering off while Mom was in meetings.
Of course now I couldn't imagine NOT having Barney around. Sometimes he even comes over for a quick visit!
