Today I went to the office with my female human to help supervise her work. I like to make sure that she always gives people treats and good feedback when they do what she asks of them.
The office is an interesting place with lots of colours and many rooms to explore. It is strange to make the rounds to each person’s desk, though, because they sit so quietly all in one room and I have to rely upon my super-strength sense of smell to know there is a person there. They don’t even make noise except strange repetitive clacking sounds with the fingers.
I really liked visiting the department where they have lots of power cords and bits of computers lying around. The people sitting in that area give really good scratches behind the ear and have yummy smelling crisp packets (potato chip bags) in their trash.
I visited the Director of Finance and conducted a thorough sniffing of his office, but it only smelled of discarded numbers. Humans can’t smell this, but dogs have lots and lots of sniffing power.
One group of people that I really enjoy saying hello to is the type of people who don’t like dogs. I like to throw extra enthusiasm into my greetings for them!
After our social visits, I escorted my human back to her office where I curled up under her desk with my chin resting helpfully on her foot while she conducted a video call with one of her employees.
Next on the agenda is going around and giving everyone Werther’s Originals. They smell yummy! I like to unwrap them completely before eating them, but that only gets to happen when she has disappeared and forgets that the candies are on her desk. I always enjoy watching her face get a confused frown when trying to figure out where the neat candy wrappers came from.
I wonder if she gives the people in her office treats because they’re always sitting down. Maybe I should tell them the trick of getting up and waiting for her to say ‘sit’ before sitting back down. She gives me a treat every time! Hours of fun!
