A couple of Fridays ago, I was just doing my regular morning activities (you know rolling around on the carpet, chewing on my bone and chasing my tennis ball) when my mom exclaimed “Guess what Chief?! You get to come to work with me today!” and proceeded to load me and my belongings in the car.
Apparently some humans celebrate this thing called “Take Your Dog to Work Day” and at my mom’s job it’s kind of a big deal. My tail was wagging out of control with excitement as we headed to Meridian Group. I, Chief Bocephus Taylor, was finally going to get the chance to see what Mom did while she was gone all day and I was going to fully immerse myself in agency life while I had the chance!

Then there’s that face you make when you’re pretending to work on a new email marketing campaign, but really you’re scoping out new dog beds. Can’t wait to log that into Workamajig! Suckers…
I did have a call that didn’t go so well. Apparently clients aren’t excited when you just breathe heavily into the phone. I exercised my option to take my frustrations out in the Mad Men Lounge. Thanks Joe.

Overall my day at the agency was pretty fun, but boy was I exhausted by quitting time! I think I’ll stick to spending my days napping around the house and chasing my tail around.
The end of the day had me like…
