White Dog listened as Michael told the main highlights of the Shelter's Adoptathon that he volunteered at this afternoon. It will last all weekend and he will work again on Sunday. Today was a little disappointing as only one pup was adopted. We reassured him that the weekend would bring out more people and result in hopefully more kitties and dogs finding forever homes.
Steve was preparing to head back to his office when White Dog reminded him that this was the official "Take Your Dog to Work Day!" "Want to go?" Steve asked, "Come on!" She leaped over the chair and was clawing for the front door knob before Steve had stooped to kiss me goodbye. "I don't really think she's interested in your offer," I joked as White Dog rushed in to jump at Steve's back to hurry him.
White Dog is well known--and loved--at Steve's architecture firm and spent the first half hour wandering around to greet old friends. There was still a bone in the freezer awaiting her attention and hall ball to be played down the long hallway that connected the various studios/offices. She managed to keep herself busy as Steve worked and eventually curled up at his feet to nap.
Both decided that after a hard day at the office an "easy" dinner was in order so they stopped to pick up moo shu pork, Chinese broccoli and ginger chicken, cold sesame noodles...and Michael's favorite, egg fu young. We all shared a fragrant feast and then fortune cookies. White Dog just shook her head when Quinn tried to eat his cookie with the fortune still inside!
