Office Loves Makiko


My Office has some of the most diverse personalities I have ever experienced. However, something that is common among most everybody is their love of dogs… which is great. I have something that I can bond with my coworkers over and they are always interested in Makiko. However, they often bug me to play with Makiko. At the beginning, I had a SOLID rule that nobody could play with Makiko at work. I kept up with that for awhile but then one of my coworkers and I started hanging out after work, and so Makiko developed a personal relationship with this coworker. So then at the office it was hard for her to understand why she couldn’t be friends with her there. So I would limit it but I would let her play with my coworker some. Well then others got wind of this but I just said that we had a personal relationship outside of work and since I didn’t with other coworkers, that was why they couldn’t pet her. Well then my boss one day was having a rough day, so I let her pet her. Another day Makiko went looking for me when I wasn’t back to my office in awhile and left my door open, so a coworker took her into her office and then Makiko got some petting there. But we’re pretty much back to nobody pets her in the office, aside from a few little nice pets. I still have the tie down that I put her on if I bring a consumer in the office. She mostly stays on her bed too. Makiko is such a good girl, but she does like her cuddles and loving.. can’t blame her. 🙂
