Some people have trouble with their co-workers—that is not the case when your colleague is four year old Layla. A curious yellow Labrador, Layla helps Rich and Sheryl in all aspects of the business at hand. She also knows when it’s time to play and is not subtle in letting Rich know. Layla is an attentive learner and loves the perks her new job provides—food, bed cuddles, and a good brushing.
From Sheryl: Layla has been a comfort and a joy. She is always learning about how things work around here, and has a natural cheerfulness about her that makes us smile. We enjoy cuddling in the bed every night, but she is not stubborn about moving to the end when it is time to sleep. The same good manners apply during mealtimes, when she is interested about the preparation of food, but does not beg for bits from the table. We are dedicated to keeping her healthy, so all her meals and treats are offered via her food dish or away from the dining table, per vet’s recommendations. I noticed that even when she is spending lots of time with Rich in his office, she will occasionally come find me elsewhere in the house as if to ‘check in.’ She’ll get her ears or back scratched or a kiss on the nose, then back to ‘work.’ This is going to make it easier to brush her every day when her winter coat starts to shed.
