    We still haven't heard from our contractors with a date yet, but the last we heard, they'd be installing a new bathroom "at the beginning of November" which would be, um, pretty much any minute now. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I've got Jar's "evaluation" for doggy daycare Monday afternoon - they're going to see how he deals with other dogs offleash and when I'm not there. FINGERS CROSSED.

    Also, I talked to my boss (who is going out of town for 2 weeks - YAY!!!) (sorry, I can't help myself - he's a lawyer) (no offense to any lawyers in the room) ANYWAY, I explained the situation to Tim, and I told him that while I'd arranged for doggy daycare, I wasn't quite sure how he'd deal with it every day, and if there's nothing going on here at the office, I may need to take some time off to (ahem) babysit the dog. OR, would he mind terribly if I brought him into the office with me for a few hours, ON LEASH of course, and COMPLETELY under control. icon_smile.gif (I even assured him that I wouldn't even let him eat the mailman.) And he didn't even give it a second thought - he just said, sure, whatever you need.

    Of course, it may have something to do with the fact he's not planning to be there anyway. But also, he has met Jar, and, while he made him a little nervous, he was very good. And he knows I'm training the CRAP out of the dog, so. . .

    But THAT is a load off of my mind!

    That is a wonderful solution! Might be great for Jar to get a bit of both. Some social interaction at daycare if that works out and at the office with Mum other days or maybe all the days to save $'s.

    When I got Chase as a puppy I had just started working at a newly opened company - actually the building wasn't even complete when I started. There was only me in the office and 2 guys in the warehouse. My bosses had other jobs and stopped in now and then. Neither had a problem with me taking Chse in to work with me as long as I stuffed him in one of their offices when we had clients come in icon_smile.gif

    It was great - the best of all worlds as I could take a break and throw a ball for him a number of times throughout the day. The company grew quickly and all new hires loved the dog until we hired one gal who was allergic. ARGH. Rather than leave my dog home alone I went off salary and started working mainly from home on a commission basis.

    You have a nice boss! icon_cool.gif

    It would be awesome to be able to bring Jar to work every day. . . icon_smile.gif

    When I was in college I worked for an attorney who brought his old GSD into the office every day - he was such a good dog. The office was a renovated Victorian house in a small village. The dog was about a million years old, and he spent the better part of the day curled up in his bed in front of the fireplace, until lunchtime, where he spent that time curled up in his bed in the kitchen. icon_biggrin.gif

    How awesome that your boss will let you bring Jar to work. Hope all goes well with daycare when you get the remodeling started. I wish more places would allow people to bring their pets but I realize some people may be allergic to them (let them take a pill). I love going into places where they have a dog or cat hanging around.

    Our local hardware store used to have a big old orange tabby cat. icon_smile.gif

    I came in this morning (without The Jar) and Tim's secretary told me that he had expressed concern to her about (get this) his furniture. As in, he sure hopes the dog doesn't sleep on his couch. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I'm thinking of emailing him and letting him know that my dog is NOT allowed on ANY furniture, so fear not! icon_biggrin.gif

    I'd send the email just so he has peace of mind.
    I can't blame him really - we are in the minority in terms of animals on furniture. Many people do let them - possibly most people he knows so it's sort of a valid concern.

    I say this after visiting a gf a week or so ago. I was an idiot and wore black.
    She has three cats and three little dogs and all are welcome on the furniture. I was completely coated! I brushed the clothes off before washing them but still spent another 30 minutes with sticky paper on a roll to get the woven in stuff out once they were dry icon_rolleyes.gif

    Yeah, you're probably right. I think they had a little dog (Maltese maybe?) - plus, being a male, I'm sure he's a little concerned about, um, marking. On the leather furniture. In the carpeted office.

    My sister used to have three cats, and I hated going to her apartment and coming home covered in hair. I also wasn't thrilled when she wore her wool coat (the one they all apparently slept on) in my car!

    I sent him this:

    Quote:
    . . . (his secretary) mentioned that you may be a little concerned about my dog and the furniture. I just wanted to let you know that he is NEVER allowed on the furniture at home or anywhere else. It might be more of a concern if he were a little guy (little dogs can get away with more!), but that won’t be a concern at all with my Jarly. I’ll keep him with me or in my office – please don’t worry about anything there!

    I also want to let you know how much I appreciate having this available for a backup plan – thank you again. I still haven’t heard from the contractor yet, though; I’m going to have to see if we can pin them down.

    I think the note you sent him is great. At least that should ease some of his concerns and not make him rethink his decision to let you bring Jar to the office. You have done such a good job with Jar that I'm sure he will be a perfect gentleman.

    Thanks, Connie - I certainly hope so! icon_smile.gif

    Jar had his daycare evaluation yesterday - unfortunately I was running late and missed it. icon_sad.gif

    They said he did very well with the other dogs, though - no problems at all, though they assure me that they'll introduce him gradually, and in short periods, to the group, as well as monitor "who" he's with.

    I'm bringing him in next Monday morning for a trial run. . . for real. icon_eek.gif

    This could be wonderful for him! It's a controlled environment where the people know his quirks. He will see so many other dogs in the course of the day he will likely settle down and just go with it. How cool would it be to hear that he had made a friend and were playing? icon_cool.gif

    I'll stayed tuned Monday for the update on this icon_smile.gif
