Beware of Dog
There’s a sign on the office that says “Beware of Dog.” It’s there so people don’t bother me and Roxanne all day long every single day. The office is our house, we sleep there and eat there and play there, too. And sometimes we just want to be left alone there.
And I’m not sad to be at Mom’s office all day. She says all the time, she wouldn’t have us if we couldn’t come to work with her – she doesn’t want to leave us home all day alone. Some days we’re at the office for more than half the whole day, twelve hours or more!
We meet lots of people at the store. Mom and Dad will introduce us to customers and students and even little kids.
But sometimes customers think it’s funny to make us bark. We get really excited or feel like we have to defend our house or sometimes we bark just because we’re dogs and that’s what we do. Mostly we bark at little kids because they’re a little scary. Sometimes they pull our ears or get really close to our faces and it scares us.
And when we bark sometimes the adults laugh and think its funny.
Well, it’s not. To us it’s kind of scary.
