Puppy vs. lemon

Advertisement

I saw via our company Slack channel that there was a puppy in the office today, which made me (a remote employee) nearly weep with jealousy. Then I remembered that I work from home, and there is a dog here every day. Before this dawned on me, I consoled myself by watching my favorite genre of doggo Instagram videos: #puppyvslemon. Just look at these adorable scamps. [Kate Bernot]


Doggy trust falls

In that same Slack network that Kate references here at the office, I have to say there are a lot of fun animal pictures that get tossed around. This week I was charmed to learn about a golden retriever named Watson with his own Instagram (#wat.ki); friends including another dog, a cat, and a hedgehog; who is able to perform trust falls on command. Watson is obviously the best. I don’t have a dog at home like Kate does, but I keep thinking that’s something I should remedy eventually. [Gwen Ihnat]

DISCUSSION

Ok i got a confession. Sometimes I look at the dog instagrams of rescues where the dogs are sad and emaciated and in bad shape and i cry. Thennnnn i hug our three dogs and tell them that the bad times are over and they can eat all the peanut butter. Cuz we rescued them. Then i will find one that i decide is my calling to save and i will say im going to save it and get upset when i know i lie to myself. And my husband is like “wtf this is some crazy shit” cuz i get so upset. Ok now that i got that off my chest, have a lit weekend folks!
