I haven’t written in forever. I know. But see, I have this coworker. He’s very distracting. Because he’s super funny and totally adorable. And while I’m trying to get things done, all he wants is to take breaks and go outside and just have fun.
I try to ignore him. I tell him I have work to do. But then he smiles. His eyes light up. And I cave. Every. Single. Time.
How can I not?
Meet Augustus! A.K.A. Gus, Silly Goose, and the Demander of Attention. He’s a keeshond we welcomed into our family late last fall, and every day’s been an adventure since. This happy-go-lucky guy loves to chew, run, chase rabbits, frolic after butterflies, and, when he’s finally, eventually tuckered out, snuggle with his parents.
But probably his very favorite thing to do…is pounce on his little big brother. As you can see, now a year old and fully grown, he has an unfair advantage. Although his brother’s pretty feisty for a small, older pup, and doesn’t back down when the huge ball of fur comes barreling toward him!
Anyway, Gus is tons of fun. He contributes to an entertaining, unpredictable office space. But we’ve had a talk, and he understands that attention is to be shared. So moving forward, you’ll find more posts from me, more often.
Although they may look a lot like this:
But that’ll be his fault, too.
