I have spent quite a few minutes this morning apologizing to the Sirs for my oversight – as I write this, they are still looking at me with disdain. I didn’t realize that this is National Dog Week. Truth be told, I didn’t even know there was a week dedicated to the celebration of dogs (I’m whispering this, I really don’t want to be heard, ok? It’ll just make the chill in the air even worse). I could say that yesterday was Yom Kippur, and I was involved in more life-affirming activities, answering if you will to a ‘higher calling’. The plumber was here Monday for the greater part of the day, Tuesday just got away from me…
I’m going to buy some Frosty Paws later today.
In the interim, for all the dogs who work like…well, dogs and read this blog on your way to or from the office – these are for you. For all of us who are totally canine-crazy enjoy..

These are great, Mimi. Thanks for sharing!
Upper management is hilarious!
They cracked me up!
I will take extra care with our two girls, Mattie and Zoey, for the rest of the week. They actually think that every week is “Dog Week”. I guess I would have to agree . . .
It’s the same way here Bill, but for gender..Sirs Archie and Theodore are treated like royalty every day – (they are after all my babies, albeit four legged ones)
Where do you find these pictures? I have, always, said that there is a person inside every dog; it makes them human (if you will). Dogs are people in dog suits. Your photos brilliantly illustrate man’s/ woman’s best friend’s humanity. Wishing the Sirs a Very Happy Dog Week!
They send you kisses Aunt Jo!!
I hope they hear me giggling. Kisses welcomed and returned ten-fold.
hahaha–these were great–especially the 5:01 p.m. one!
I liked that one too!
These are so great! Thanks for sharing! I love the Finance one.. We all look like that. 😉
Very fun, Mimi. I loved them!
Holy Hopping Canines. I love this! I can sooooo see finance look just this way! and the CEO? yes yes yes. so good. I’m sure the sirs will forgive, as they adore the very ground you walk upon (as you do them). I must go now and ply my pooch with extra loving care, as I too was ignorant of this very special week.
I really think there has to be more press on these kinds of commemorative weeks. The Sirs have been a little bit standoffish, though my apologies have been numerous and sincere..:-)
Ah well, a treat seems to satisfy my Dude…yours may be more spoiled! Hmmm, who is raising who here? 😉
Oh there is no doubt – they raised me..;-)
Awww … intern is just too cute and sysadmin made me laugh.
You are so cute…as are your employees! 🙂
My husband would kill me if all these employees were mine! :;-)
Hahaha! Still laughing! I am going to get some frosty paws too – maybe that’s why I haven’t been getting cuddles this week! 😉 Great post!!!!
I know right?? I think our fur-kids are feeling a bit slighted..;-)
I love this, and you, as does Stuart now..because I didn’t know either! But S has now been promised a trip to the store to shop for a treat! 🙂 The photos are absolutely perfect…I can relate to many of them with 5:01 being my very favorite!! xo
That’s my favorite too..And love to Stuart from his pals on the East Coast..xo
That’s me at 5:01 pm…. 😉 love the humor!
🙂 I have a feeling there’s a pack of us like that..sorry couldn’t help it..;-)
These are great! I especially like the worried look on the new hire employee. 🙂 And 5:01 – oh yes indeed!
🙂 I actually had a few more, but didn’t want to inundate everyone with pictures…The 5:01 photo is my favorite..
Wonderful post! As a dog-lover I just so laughed out loud. I recognised so many of these people…I mean dogs..:)
Laughing..I got a kick out of these pics too..
I may well re-blog it and make a little comment about your blog on my own if that’s ok – I’ll do it tomorrow if I hear you’re happy for that. I think my followers would enjoy it too! 🙂
Of course! Enjoy!
Thank you! 🙂
National dog week you say I didn’t know that, but then I am in a different county right………..just agree with me here that is why I didn’t know about it right…………right…………good we are in agreement…………..
Finance hits the mark! LIKE IT>
I think the intern is pretty cute. 😉 Happy that you smiled.
Hilarious…loved it 🙂
Ack!! UTTERLY ashamed that I missed this–hope Lola & Beau don’t catch wind of it…. 😉
I promise not to tell them – the Sirs were a bit miffed that I was late for their fete. There are just so many upset pups I can take!! 😉
Thanks so much!
