We recently began a new program at work, and to share a few words about what it is and how it works, I created this video. The video was also used to apply for a grant to help the program grow, so I only had 24 hours to do it. Josh helped out and I think it came out nice. Hopefully my movie editing skills will only get better.

This was a weekend of Paige. She accompanied me on all my outings on Saturday and braved the crowds with me on Sunday to watch Josh at the Shamrock Shuffle. She was about as well-behaved as they come (sorry, Fray). Keep your fingers crossed that this is the real Paige and she’s not just on her best behavior while she gets to know us. She is such a sweet pup.
A while back I considered fostering a pup through PAWS, but then felt that it wasn’t right for me or Josh. Fast forward to Sunday when I volunteered and fell for Andres. On Monday he was up for a foster home, so I inquired but he already had a home set in place. But then staff asked if I was interested in Paige, a three-year old shepherd mix whose owner relinquished her because he didn’t have time for her anymore. I went for it and then panicked and wondered what I got myself into. She’s wonderfully calm and sweet now that she’s in our apartment, but I can’t help but worry how she’ll fare while we are away at work. Here’s hoping that after a week of early morning and late night events, tomorrow will be a short day. Isn’t she pretty?
My dream job most definitely includes being able to bring my dog to work with me [hint: I first wrote about it here]. How great would that be? I’m sure Frasier’s whining would not go over well with the clients I see today, but maybe his goofiness would help clear the streets. Every one of these dogs here travel with their owners to their locally owned Chicago shops. Coolest gig ever. See the links below to find these dog-friendly shops.
With St. Patrick’s Day on Saturday, we donned some green and headed downtown to see the river turn green, meet up with some friends and watch the Badger game. I couldn’t believe how crowded the city was; there were literally people everywhere. Riding the crowded El train made me grateful for the first time that I have to drive to work. On Sunday I headed over to PAWS on 26th Street and fell for an adorable black pooch named Andres who only had three legs.
