Lunch with puppies? Heck yeah


I love my job, but I won’t deny that by Wednesday I’m starting to drag a little. I like to schedule a good lunch on Wednesdays, or a happy hour with friends to perk up the middle of the week. This week it was the promise of puppies at lunch that got me out the door on time.

Last week Jamie, our business manager, informed me that local Petfinder member shelter Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL) would be at our local Whole Foods this Wednesday with adoptable pets during lunch as well as in the early evening. I immediately suggested that our lunch break be spent with the adoptable pets.

During today’s lunch I was in heaven. Jamie took a photo of me with a Pit Bull pup named Left Eye who stole my heart.

I defy you to not laugh when a puppy like Left Eye gives you a kiss.

Even though it’s not the right time for me to bring home a friend for Toby (my beloved cat), I’m so happy that I went to the adoption event today. In fact, I had such a good time that I’m planning to visit again when I finish work for the evening. I love looking at adoptable pet photos (and I look at a lot during my average day) but there’s a special kick that comes from cuddling an adoptable pet in person.

I hope Left Eye and his siblings find forever homes where they can snuggle and lick to their hearts’ content!
