I have been working from home since March 2020 and my two furry office mates set up in their work positions every morning under my desk. Sometimes they bring a bone or a stuffy to the office. Recently I was away for a couple weeks so they were out of their work routine but as of today, we are all back in work mode.
Why this is beautiful?
- They lighten my mood and add a sense of calmness to the office. There is nothing better than listening snoring dogs while I work. Although one of them doesn't like delivery trucks, squirrels or random leaves blowing across the yard and the barking can have the reverse effect.
- They are the best sounding boards. They listen to my rants and stories without judgement and they seem to be interested in all the ideas I bounce off them.
- They show up no matter what.
- They create balance by letting me know when it is time to take a break and end for the day.
