I hope he poops on my bosses desk.

I might be able to get him in to the office, but I have to go to court tomorrow, so that's probably not happening.

I, too, bring my pooch to work every day.

I think every busy desk-jockey/phone-monkey/paper-pusher should have a dog in the office. Getting up and going for a walk mid-morning and another mid-afternoon is good for my mind, my body and my productivity.

So, this is common practice nowadays in a lot of offices?

For those of you whose workplaces regularly let them bring their pets in: Are you allowed to bring your human children every day, too? Or just your "kids"?

I would say that it probably is fairly common, in more pgoressive (or, maybe, "less uptight") workplaces. That is, until the whiners take over and remind everyone what the lowest common denominator is.

wee: IMO, it's a bizarre practice, especially if your office says that you can bring your dog in all the time, but you're forced to drop your human kids off at daycare every day.

I don't know if it's whining if other people in the office legitimately have severe pet allergies. Or is it?
 
2006-06-22 12:05:42 PM
My dog was a present from my old boss, so I'd occassionally bring him to work. Nothing like a dog at a law office to lighten things up. It was a small office, and everyone enjoyed the distraction.
 
2006-06-22 12:07:51 PM
it's a bizarre practice especially if your office says that you can bring your dog in all the time, but you're forced to drop your human kids off at daycare every day.

Office dogs sit at their owners' feet all day, needing only a bowl of kibble and/or water. Not allowed to bark or run around. Couple of walks during the day and a lot of being told that "heeza goooboy" is all the maintenance doggy needs.

Kids? Not so lo-maintainance.
 
2006-06-22 12:27:41 PM
Bill_Wick's_Friend: Eh. I think dogs, like kids, vary in their temperament. I have known a few kids that would do just as well with the treatment you described for an office dog :)
 
2006-06-22 12:28:39 PM
Clearly, themnemosyne loathes dogs, as can be evidenced by her untimely comments in yesterday's thread posted by newmoonpuppyhead about his dying dog.

I'll be nice about it, but I think you need to let it go. There really are offices that allow dogs, and there really are people that love animals. I'm with you in one respect though, I'm willing to spend maybe 1-2 thousand dollars if I think it will prolong my dog's life without pain. More then that, I don't think it's appropriate. There IS a line between a pet (which I love, don't get me wrong) and another person.

Finally, there really aren't THAT many people with severe pet allergies.

P.S. I must need more coffee, my post is all over the place.

P.P.S. My (rather large) company allows dogs, ONLY if they are calm and well-mannered. My big newfie comes in, my jack russell stays at home, he's the devil.

Actually, I was trying to be sarcastic. I can see now that I completely and utterly failed. Sorry about that. I was actually trying to agree with your comments in yesterday's thread. People can really, truly love their dogs, and yet not want to go and spend 10 grand to prolong their life.

Additionally, I was trying to disagree with your post in this thread. Yes, people can bring their dogs and not their kids to work. The difference is that a dog is completely happy and content to lay at their owner's feet all day. To address your point that SOME kids would be happy to do the same, I would argue that even those uncommonly docile kids would be much happier spending time with their peers in a daycare center.

Once again, my apologies, my Boobies made no sense. Hopefully this one is a little easier to follow.

If you have allergies then your coworkers should respect your problem and leave their dogs at home if it is going to bother you. However, if the dogs are kept far enough away that they won't bother your allergies, then I say tolerance is prudent. But your health is much more important than bringing Fido to work for a day.

According to the other dog@work link submitted this morning (Thread-2133244):

Millions of Americans believe pets on the job lower absenteeism and encourage workers to get along


If you are an employee who requires bringing a pet to work in order to be motivated, you are a looser. You either like your work environment or you do not. It should be based on the satisfaction of your work and the quality of your coworkers, not if you can have Fluffy or Fido under your desk.

If you are an employee who feels that exposing their coworkers to pet dander is in their best interest, you are a looser. Nobody should ever have to suffer allergies simply because you need a motivational tool. People with severe allergies will never be able to walk near your cubicle or office. In effect, you've prevented them from working in their own work environment.

If you are an employee who thinks that all of your coworkers will appreciate your choice in pet, you are a looser. There are a large number of animals that I love. There are a large number of animals that I really hate. Chances are, you'll most likely bring a pet of the latter category to work. Suddenly, I work in a hostile work environment. My productivity may go down, my absenteeism may go up.

Lastly, if you are an employee who thinks that all of the attention that your coworkers give to your pet is a good thing, you are a looser. I am sure that your coworkers love it when you drag down the group's productivity level each time you bring your pet by and all of the A.D.D. folks must stop and admire your pet. In companies that have team based bonuses, I am sure that your distraction is especially welcome. Good job! Take heart that your team may be forced for work a few hours of overtime to make up for these slackers on the night before release. Missing time with their families because of your productivity destroyer always makes you a team hero.

This will be followed by later postings as the owner of the business and the coworkers that is being sued for allowing an animal to enter the building.

Wow, that must have been written by the Senior Vice President in Charge of Being a Poopydrawers.

What a grouch.... and totally misses the point of the exercise.

Sure, if people are allergic, then it's not good. But otherwise it's a welcome break in monotony. Fark maximising productivity by grinding employees into the ground. Finish early, have a beer, take your dogs to the park.

Funny, it's bring your dog to work day every day at my company. I forget that the rest of the world doesn't have dogs hanging out in their cubes.

The dogs are well behaved, and they are a welcome break. When you work in a cube, you should be getting up every 20-60min, stretching your legs, back, etc. So I get up, go pet the dog, grab a drink and come back.

Plus dogs are great conversation starters. Maybe I'm a "looser" ( Dinjiin needs to go back to 1st grade and learn the difference between loose and lose. Damn, even my coworkers for whom english is their 5th language know that!!) for using the dog as an excuse to start a conversation, but I think it's better than talking about the weather.

In addition, university offices are very public places. With 17,000 students, we have more than a few who are not only allergic, but also have cultural aversions and major fear of dogs.

Just seems innappropriate to me to make your clientele/coworkers suffer through.

Until you can bring any pet you want to work, why should dogs get special exception? It is not like anyone has a working-dog these days. They're not for anything other than emotional support... so until you let another co-worker bring in his Iguana or Cat or Snake you shouldnt play favourites.

I'm hot and cold about the bring your dog to work (the office) issue. If it's well behaved and clean, sure, as long as none of your co-workers mind. My dog would be pretty chill at an office. You give him a pillow and he's set for hours. One of my clients is a lady who works at some sort of warehouse/garage type place, and takes her French Bulldog to work all the time. I used to work with a lady who had a yorkie, the stupid thing was so small you could put it in a purse. She takes her yorkie to work at a furniture store.
I dunno. Taking my dog to work in an office would keep me sane. Its nice to have something warm and fuzzy to pet if you get upset or tired. If that makes me a loser (hopefully not looser. i can't imagine a dog would make me looser.), i guess i am.

If my prairie dog was still alive, I'd bring her to work. Now, seeing it'd require some digging, probably not as likely.

I live in San Francisco, the world's capital of dog ownership.

SOME dogs lie quietly at their owners' feet. They need to be taken out a couple of times during the day to pee, eat, what have you. So do I. When half the floor is spending half the day petting mr snookywookums, it becomes a problem. Another way it becomes a problem is the same way that people raise children - with convenience food and the internet, they practically raise themselves. The owners are used to the whining, the chewing, the pawing at people, the barking, the pissing everywhere. 'All dogs do that.', the same way all kids run around restaurants punching waiters in the crotch because they think it's funny. Get two dogs in there and it's sniff-and-bark-a-thon.

I understand people who have pets and I understand that these animals provide a great deal of much needed warmth and compassion, but the workplace ain't the place for it.
 
2006-06-22 02:14:14 PM
The dogs will be surprised to learn that humans lead lives that are more humiliating and inhumane than that of their pets. Except for the bosses dog, who will want to make the employees roll over in a submissive jesture the same way his human owner does...

any other doberman owners in here? best dogs ever.

My first "baby" was a Doby...he stood about 6 feet tall on his hind legs and was between 100 and 125 lbs...He was the best... Not a mean bone in his body, unless he thought someone was trying to hurt me. I got a fawn female and she was a sweetie too. Different than he was, but a great companion nonetheless. They had one litter together...11 puppies...all black and tan. They were all so cute together. I still miss them both to this day and it has been a while since they have been gone. I hope to get another Doberman or two someday. Your Doggins McGee looks like she is happy and loved.

I am horribly allergic to cats. My face swells, my lungs start itching, my eyes swell almost shut, I sneeze green goo, my back throbs in pain, my neck throbs in pain and my throat itches uncontrollably.

Dogs, I'm cool with. My housemate has a gorgeous mix of Boxer and Rotweiler. She was a rescue dog and is very skittish around new people. She has a mean bark but will back away from you if you walk forward. Once she gets to know you and show her some love, you'll never get her away from you.

He's actually a rat terrier. A big rat terrier. About 17" at the withers, 27" docked tail to nose, 26lbs (he should be about 20). He supposedly has papers that say he's a rat terrier, but here in Texas, the land of flea market puppies, papers mean very little. He's 4, we adopted him about christmas time.

I think Basenjis are infinitely cute. Max does has a very basenji face. I've also developed a severe crush on Shiba Inus (miniature Akitas... like the DO NOT WANT fellow up top lol) and Akitas.
Is your pup really vocal? I have read that they are barkless, but by no means noiseless! Yodeling, whining, meowing, etc.

Since everyone else seems to be posting pics of their doggies...

I'd like to take him in to work sometime, but I have a feeling he'd be bored to death if I did. He knows how to behave indoors (lived in an apartment for the first year and a half of his life), but if he has the choice between being inside or outside, he'll choose outside every time.

My office has always had a fairly liberal policy about pets and work. On any given day, there are at least 3 dogs in here. More on Fridays. I think it's a great policy; sorta blurs the line between work and home.

I have 2 Italian Greyhounds. Small, easy to carry, hypoallergenic, and they like to sleep in my lap while I type. Perfect dogs to take to work.

Sorry for the time delay, this "work" thing keeps getting in the way ;)

Yup, Elmo (my daughter named him after the first stuffed animal he killed) is a yodeler - strangest noise you'll ever hear coming from a dog. There isn't any real way to describe it, you have to hear it. For being a "barkless dog", he's quite vocal...growls, whines, grumbles, screams and that wonderful "baroo". But he doesn't bark, ever. He does this jumping up-and-down thing to show he's happy to see you, bounces like Tigger, and that little curled-up tail wagging is like a waving donut ;)

He's a great dog, despite his pathological hatred of pillows (and socks, and toilet paper). We adopted him from BRAT about two months ago, 10 lbs underweight and scared of his own shadow...he was rescued from a bad situation (overcrowded backyard breeder, he had to fight for his food) but he's warming up and fattening up and feeling secure finally with our Aussie mix, Tesla (she just thinks she's a 60lb Basenji).

I love dogs. I really want to get one.

I worked in an office once where my boss brought her dog in every day. Trouble was, she also had a great big persian cat so the dog had cat hair all over him and every time he came near me, I broke out in hives and couldn't breathe until I downed some benadryl.

Otherwise, the dog was great.

hey dumbass... many people have that right. just because you don't like it doesn't make it wrong. a lot of people probably feel the same way about you and your s.o.
