Patches goes to work

This morning I was rejected for the very first time.

It hurt like crazy, zipping right through my fragile heart!

Bright and early, Sparky and I packed up our things and headed off to Doggie Day Care for the day, while Mama went to work and Pop went to the Casino to hang with some buds. Because I am 6 months and 1 day old, and not neutered yet (whatever that means!), I was told that I could not stay. Mama tried to get them to bend their rules, since I am getting neutered next Friday, but they didn't budge. Sparky got to stay, but I had to go.

But that's OK, because I get to hang out with Mama at her work! I've been really busy sniffing all the corners and barking at everyone who walks in the door. I'm like, the official mascot of the office! Mama made me a bed out of a box and her coat and I took a little nap right under her desk.

This afternoon I am going to help everyone with their lunches. After all, I have to make sure that their sandwiches are fit for human consumption now that I am in charge of keeping all these people safe and sound. I can't wait to tell Sparky all about my day...he's going to be so jealous!

So jealous, I wish I could bring Lucy into work. I have some clients I'd like her to bark at right now.

Work is pawsome, Patches. So glad you were able to turn that rejection into something far more positive. I went to work with mom today too and she even left me for an hour with some coworkers! I sure tired them out though. I've been sleeping it off ever since.

Maggie & Mitch said...

We'd say you got the better deal, Patches! Sparky will definitely be jealous!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

We hope Sparky's rash is better!! And going to work is so much more fun than day care. Mom is trying to figure out how to sneak me into her office on the day after Christmas cause she has to work.

Oh Patches, they didn't let you stay there? My hooman's don't accept un-neutered males boarding with us too but you are still young & I'm sure you haven't learned to lift up your leg & spray all over right? Hehehe...

Love licks,

Your Sparky isn't the only one who's goin' to be jealous. THIS Sparky is jealous too! I wish I could go to work with my humans!


Roy & Gwen's Mom said...

That's too bad you were rejected. Our mom used to work at a doggie daycare and we went everyday. It was so much fun!

Thank you for the holiday card, too.

I guess it wasn't such bad luck after all that you couldn't stay at the doggie day care since you got to go to work with Mom.

Merry Christmas Sparky and Patches!!

Love, Seadra and Zoe

uh, I'm a human, but I'm posting anyway - I think this is one of the only days I've been sad not to still be at your momma's work!

Petra said...

What a fun day you had! Everything seems to work out for the best, doesn't it?

Your mom might want to take you to work with her every day from now on.

I wish I could go to work with my mommy.

Happy New Year to you & your family

Sounds like you WERE the hit of the office. Any chance you'll be making a repeat performance there anytime soon?

Goober love & smooches,
