Last Call is The Takeout’s online watering hole where you can chat, share recipes, and use the comment section as an open thread. Here’s what we’ve been reading/watching/listening around the office today. Have a great weekend!


Puppy vs. lemon

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]
