Not this dog, he doesn’t do much work at all.  And if he does do something, like tell me the phone’s ringing , or say hello to visitors, it tires him out so much he has to go back to sleep!

A Dogs Life


I am not working like a dog either, but going back into the office environment after the last few years has been exhausting and I am really too tired to make much sense today.
