No Dogs

Ironically, this is indeed my Dogs on Thursday  post.  I’ve mentioned to a few of you, and others have read comments from those in the know, so an explanation is in order.

That was taken a few weeks ago, when ALL the dogs decided with the Knight was the place to be.  Take a good look, because until the inlaws take vacationyou won’t see it anymore.   For reasons known only to himself, Dae – the FIL – announced to the Knight on Monday that our dogs needed to start staying at home.  Now, I’d discussed with BOTH of my inlaws that as soon as the weather turned just a bit warmer and we were able to get the pen renovated, they would be staying at home.  But no, he couldn’t wait, so sweet Sissy is in her crate, and Mugsy is most likely on the sofa, a few feet away.

Shadow (the sheltie on the right for the newer readers) is perhaps suffering most.  He belongs to Pop, Dae’s father and the founder of the family business, so it’s not likely that he’ll be told to stay home.  Instead, he looks in every corner for his playmates, and will come rest his head on my knee.  We’ll share a sad moment together, and he’ll crawl under my desk for a pout.  Wish I could join him. 

Never fear; the inlaws will soon take to their RV and head to Georgia for a week, and my babies will return to the office.  Pop has been a delightfully wicked ally.  He asks Shadow loudly, “Are you lonely?” or “You miss your playmates?” always within his son’s hearing.  

For history’s sake, Fred never spent much time at the office.  He got sent home too, by the same man, for similarly unknown reasons.  Mugsy never came to the office unless he needed to – to go the vet – until Fred died.  I thought everyone was enjoying Mugsy and Sissy, and it seems I was mostly correct…

This isn’t what I’d planned for DoT, but I under-estimated how closely you really do follow goes on here, in my little blogging corner of the world. Thank you for that, and for caring. Later today, I’ll post about my fun night last night.

    Is FIL not a dog-person? I’m so sorry that mugsy and sissy have to stay at home (for now). However, you WILL have to go home and let them out at lunch time, right? (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

    I hope they had a better second day at home yesterday. Poor little Sissy & Mugsy. MIL has no idea why he made this decision.

    And thanks for the update on the cast. Can’t wait to see what happened last night! g

    Oh they love their daddy!! That is a great shot!!
    I do hope their days are going better..probably make up for it at night though! lol They know you love them and they’ll be okay!

    People sure do suck sometimes.
    I worked for a small family business who brought their dogs to the office all the time… I got Zeus and began bringing him… all was fine until one day the old, old father kept starting to comment about no more dogs in the office (mind you NO ONE came to our office)… soon after that I began looking for a job closer to home (why was I driving 1+ hours to MA anyway?)!

  8. Anita says:

    Those puppies sure do love their Daddy! 🙂 I know they are missing you just as much as you are missing them!!! 😦 Maybe you can talk the in-laws into taking a 2 week vacation!

  9. Kim says:

    Poor Shadow being all alone now. Hopefully Mugsy & Sissy will get to play with him soon. Maybe FIL will have a change of heart :}

  10. Anita says:

    Ok, now I’m sure that WordPress just hates me! It ate another comment! Let me try again….

    Those babies sure do love their daddy!! I’m sure that they miss you just as much as you miss them!!! Maybe you can talk the inlaws into a 2 week vacation! 🙂

    Awe poor pups. I hope they get to come back to work soon. They seemed to be having such a great time.

    Happy Dogs on Thursday!! Hope yours is dog filled soon.

    That’s a very funny post! Love the picture – absolutely perfect and explains all.

  13. insanknitty says:

    Hugs Chan.. and that picture.. you need to frame it.. sooo funny and cute!

  14. Nancy says:

    oh Chan. I hope the pups did OK at home. Wonder why FIL chose to instill the “no dogs” rule?

  15. Amanda says:

    I feel bad for the pups, too! I’m sure they miss you as much as you miss them during the day.

    I love the pic of the Knight with all the houndies.

  16. Bea says:

    Cute puppies! If they have been at the office just fine for the last little bit why couldn’t they be there now just fine?

  17. fireflynights says:

    Considering the fact that I’ve never seen a customer/client in your office when I was there, what’s the big deal with the dogs being there? I thought most of the business was on the phone and out in the field.

  18. StarSpry says:

    I love that picture!

    Poor Shadow 😦 And poor Mugsy & Sissy, too! Glad Pop is trying to stir things up a little 🙂

  19. Dianne says:

    Poor Mugsy. Poor Sissy. Poor you. I would love to be able to bring my girls to work, but no luck so far. I have a nanny who comes to the house and lets them out three days a week. The other two days I go to work 1/2 hour early and take an extra long lunch so I can run home and let them out. Not the best, but it works. The very best scenario would be for me to win the lottery and never have to work again so I could be a stay-at-home mom to my furbabies.

    P.S. Gotta love Pop!

  20. Criquette says:

    I’m pouting, too. What a mystery. How can he possibly say no to such adorable pups, including Shadow? And you, and Pop, and the Knight? Do you think maybe he’ll have a change of heart after his vacation?
