Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 40: Bring Your Dog to Work Day?

My colleague, R, sent out an email yesterday looking for a new "forever home" for her 6-month old purebred English bulldog puppy, Solid: 

Her landlord changed the rules and decided to prohibit pets, so the situation was rather urgent.  Within less than an hour, another colleague, T, had clinched the deal to adopt Solid, which provided a very quick and happy ending!

Today, R brought Solid into the office for the hand-off to T, so we had an adorable and frisky puppy hanging around for about an hour this morning before T was able to take a break and bring Solid to his new home.  So adorable!  Very appropriate name for this little guy, who was very friendly and totally in love with the soft grey CalHIPSO hippo that J handed over to him.  The hippo was clearly not meant to be a dog toy, and Solid pretty much destroyed the poor creature within about 15 minutes.

Maybe this could be the beginning of a new tradition at CPCA for a Bring Your Pet to Work Day???
