Twiggy Update: She Likes That I'm Working From Home

0 comments suggest edit

A while ago I introduced you to Twiggy, our skittish Italian Greyhound. Well she’s no longer the skittish type. Skittish was so five minutes ago she tells us. Now she’s acting more like her full sized Greyhound cousins by being a total couch potato.

Especially now that I work from home and she’s free from her exercise pen during the day. Her main agenda item for the day is making sure to find a nice sunbeam to lay in as evidenced in this photo taken today.

Twiggy Finds Her Beam

She works very hard to stay in the sunbeam as evidenced by this photo taken two days ago.

I’m trying to get her to pull her own weight around the house. She eats, sleeps, pees, and poos but doesn’t give anything back. So I tried to get her to write some code for me while I went to get a drink, figuring I could give the client a discount for work she does, but this is how I found her when I got back. Lazy dog.

    I tried putting my whippet to work as well and ended up w/ the same result (albeit your min-whip fits a little better than my guy):

    Looks like her leg healed up nicely...the resiliency of dogs will never cease to amaze me.

    A few years ago, I did a bit of research on computer desks and decided on this AnthroCart model: And it's a fantastic computer desk. But its Wife Acceptance Factor (WAF) is abysmal for a few reasons: It's absolutely...
