No personal space 😂

This is Ernie. His skills include begging for treats, booping me for walkies, passing out on my feet, and shedding on my couch. He is currently on a performance improvement plan for his lack of productivity.....

This is Benzie. He excels at drooling on important documents, interrupting zoom calls that are going too long and also acts as reception - making sure every neighborhood dog stays at least 60 feet away.

Aspen just waiting for me to play!

This is our every morning!!! The sun is out today!☀️

Jack is checking the kids’ homework. 🤓

Posie..”are we done yet?”

And here Barley is getting ready for a meeting!

Oreo - keeps knocking one of my monitors over

My coworker gets distracted by everything

Mom don’t you see me?? I don't care if you have work to do. I need pets and lots of them!! 🐾❤️

My DIL’s puppy not wanting her to work anymore

Trying to get my attention.

Guarding The Painting😹

Waiting for someone to get off the phone from their meeting .....

Currently whining for a treat/attention as we speak 😂

Pearl works in the begging department

My “teaching assistant” is sleeping on the job

Ardie “helps” put the flag out each morning. 🇺🇸

Barley studying for a test

Gunther doesn't understand social distancing

Ella is... So. Needy.
