First Day of Work

Luna was nice enough to let Symphony come to work with me on Friday so she could meet my co-workers and volunteers at a late night meeting.  It was a great opportunity for me to see how Symphony reacts in new situations including an office setting, young kids, and a husky puppy (Stormy).  Luna took the day off at home with her treats, kongs, and sunshine.
"Ready to go to work?  How about a belly rub first."

I was impressed at how well Symphony did on her first day at work.  She handled our incredibly long staircase without any trouble.  Unlike Luna who likes to leap up and down stairs, Symphony is very careful about placing her feet on each and every step. 

11 steps to the landing.  Then 11 more to the second floor.
A quick evaluation of the steps and then she's ready to go.
Symphony also did well with Stormy.  Luna had to put Stormy in his place a week ago when he was bugging her for some playtime.  He seemed to remember that greyhounds don't play the same as huskies because he kept calm and gave Symphony plenty of space.

In the evening, we had a meeting with some of our 4-H club members, leaders and volunteers.  The kids LOVED Symphony and she just loved their attention.  The parents couldn't believe how wonderful she was with the army of kids petting her constantly.  I think she would really like to be in a home with kids based on how much her tail was wagging.

As fun as it was to bring Symphony to work, it really made me appreciate how perfect Luna is at work.  I don't have to worry about Luna if I leave my office for a moment.  She's very good about staying close to me when we go to the printer and visit co-workers.  I can get a lot of work done with Luna around because she knows when to settle.

Here's hoping that all that good exposure gets Symphony a forever home soon.

Symphony will be one well acclimated pup when she goes to her forever home.

She's such a smart girl. Her time with you and Luna is helping her so much!

Wouldn't it be nice if one of the parents that met her at night ends up adopting her?!
