Nitro and I are very lucky because I am one of the lucky people who gets to work from home so I get to be with my dogs all day long. However there are disruptions throughout my day because after I’ve been on the computer for a while either Tallulah or Nitro will absolutely demand my attention. Usually it is Tallulah dropping her ball at my feet and starring at me and then the ball. Sometimes Nitro will come to my desk and just set his head in my lap which means “mommy it’s time to go to the dog park”. I love having the luxury to be around my dogs all day long. Next Friday June 22 is Take Your Dog To Work day. How many of you are going to take your deaf dog to work next Friday? Nitro and I hope you all have an opportunity to join in on Take Your Dog To Work Day.
Have fun! ~ Christina and Nitro Lee – Deaf Dogs Rock

Dogs welcome at many tech companies - by Patrick May - Mercury News at mercurynews.com
Zynga’s got its “barking lot” just outside the main lobby in San Francisco. Amazon offers dog biscuits at the receptionist’s desk and dog-friendly water fountains around its Seattle campus. And dozens of companies in the Bay Area and beyond are listed on dog-friendly websites in case you — and your four-legged companion — want to check out the amenities offered by your prospective employers.
Next Friday is Take Your Dog to Work Day, and millions of pets are expected to show up at workplaces around the United States. But for many companies, notably high-tech firms in Silicon Valley, well, every day is Take Your Dog to Work Day.
“We’ve got hundreds of dogs at Google (GOOG) everyday,” says spokesman Jordan Newman. “We’ve allowed dogs to come to work since the early days because we find having your dog with you can make people more comfortable and thus more productive. Plus, it’s tough owning a dog and having it sit at home all day.”
That won’t be the case on Friday — or any other day — for Dolly, who regularly accompanies her owner Erin McCormack to work at Authentic Entertainment in Los Angeles.
