Im working from home for more hours per day than Im usually gone during the day if I were to be going into the office. My dog seems really pissed that Im at home but not paying the amount of attention to her that I would usually show to her when Im home. Poor girl
Hasn’t been much change, morning routine is the same, kits get fed and watered and petted and do the under-foot and in-the-way thing for awhile and then they wander off into the house to sleep for the day as if I’ve left. If they wander out for kibble during the day they seem perplexed that I’m still around, but not enough to disrupt going back to napland. About the time I usually return they show up again, waiting for dinner and the evening’s activities. Only difference is I hadn’t left.
The dogs all crowd just outside my office door. Not a problem, kinda cute. Until I had a conference call with my team and my boss. That’s when the terrier decided to give a speech. Not his angry barks he throws at neighbor dogs or passing children (he hates children). No, these were measured sounds meant to convey how offended he was that I could be home and not be petting him. Fortunately, when I closed him in the playpen, he shut up, and the other two just lay by the door. Fortunately, everyone laughed it off.
I’ve also shrieked a couple times this week when I suddenly realized the chihuahua snuck in. I notice when she jumps up on my desk. Little ninja rat.
The ridgeback has yet to be any sort of issue beyond occasionally stealing dishes off the counter and burying them in the couch, but that happened before.
My 13 year old dog has barely left my side since I’ve been staying home. She sleeping at (on) my feet as I type this. 'Course I’m the one who feeds her and takes her for walks, so I’m sure that influences her preferences.
