Below: Working dog. Mister President at the office.
Still, having my dog at the office is one of the perks of being a co-owner of a business. When I was twenty-one I wanted to have my own design studio and walk to work every day with my dog, and that’s pretty much the life I have now. It helps too, that Mister President happens to be the best dog ever. He was a cast aside mutt (some combination of labrador, pitt bull and something terrified of water), shivering on the concrete floor of the Newark Humane Society when we first saw him, but I don’t know how anyone could ever give this guy up. He’s a remarkable companion. If you’re considering bringing a dog into your life — and your office — I couldn’t more highly recommend adopting a mutt from your local shelter — those are the only kinds of dogs I’ll ever bring home.
