HAPPY TAKE YOUR DOG TO WORK DAY!
If your company celebrates, I hope you're celebrating! Such an awesome day for both you and your dog. Luckily, everyday is bring your dog to work day for me since I've fought extremely hard to be able to bring Pixie with me. Today's post is all about the benefits I've experienced bringing Pixie to work.
Reason #1 out of a million
She makes me happy! Plain and simple, she can turn any shitty day into at least an ok one. Work life can be stressful especially when shitty things have happened. We've all been there and without Pixie, I just never fully recovered and my bad mood would drag on at least for the entire work day. But with Pixie around, I just take a deep breath and hug and sniff her. The sniffing part sounds weird but she just has this distinct sweet smell to her that relaxes me. She's a great reminder that there are bigger things in the world to stress over than a job.
Reason #2 out of a million
She let's me take breaks! We take 2 mini walks everyday and it's so nice to go outside for even just a little bit. Office life can be stuffy and fresh air really does help my mood. Pixie loves going outside with me just for a little bit so she can meet her work friends and make sure to pee on top of their pee so they know that it's her patch of grass.
Reason #3 out of a million
She made new friends for me! I work in an office with over a 100 people and it's such a bummer that there aren't that many opportunities to communicate with others outside of your department. Pixie's totally changed that for me. It's so easy to initiate communication with someone when all they have to do is say how cute your dog is. Now I've had conversations with executives that I know would've ended with the normal how are you convo instead of how's Pixie doing today which is way more interesting. I've also made new work friends because of her and I'm so grateful of that.
Reason #4 out of a million
She makes me laugh! I feel bad for revealing this about her but Pixie sometimes farts. It's freaking hilarious because she looks at me like I did it. And I give her the look like uhh no girl, I didn't do it. And she gives me the look like uhh mom, cover for me. It makes me and the people around me laugh and it's totally fine if she stinks up the room because it's cute. If I farted, ya...not good.
Reason #5 out of a million
She makes me a better worker! With her around, I'm happier and I'm more productive. When other's are having a bad day, they come hug Pixie and I think they feel much better. Win win for everyone.
Pixie is such a social butterfly and loves everyone that gives her attention. She's totally the star that she was meant to be and I think it helps her too because she genuinely feels all the love that people give her. I hope that bring your work day turns into bring your work everyday for everyone very soon.
