Cutter at Work

Cutter and I are enormously lucky (and grateful) to be able to spend all hours of the day together—including the hours at work. It all started the week after we brought him home, in July 1999. I had taken a few days off to help him get used to his new home (and me) and to begin his crate-training. But when our time was up, I wasn't ready to leave him. I called Brian and asked if it would be okay to bring him to work with me "until he's all crate-trained" and that was all she wrote. Now, on the rare days when Cutter plays hookey with Dad, invariably Val or Brian (or I) will remark how weird it is around here without him—it just doesn't feel right.

In front of Dog and everybody, we want to thank Brian from the bottom of our hearts for giving us this great gift every day. Thank you, Brian.

"Do you want to play now?"

"What about now?"

Must be 5 o'clock

Job responsibility: box shredder

A job well done

A nap well earned

If it's sunny and he's not in his crate?

The new office doesn't measure up in the sunbeam department
