Office Weekly Round Up: Office Pets

Pets are kind of like family members: annoying at times, but lovable. For some of us, it can be hard to leave your pets at home while you’re at work. For this week’s roundup, we gathered pictures of pets being productive (and not so productive) with their owners in their offices.

They docked my pay for chewing the quarterly reports.

This little guy has his own space and even a couple of toys to play with. We wonder how coworkers deal with the barking?

This Boxer needs his coffee break. He might settle for a quick walk in the park.

Larger breeds of dogs can work in an office, except when something gets them excited and all of a sudden a game of fetch becomes mandatory.

Before I get around to reviewing those reports, how about dropping some fish food in here?

Having a fish tank in the office is a great idea; they don’t require much care outside of clean water, filters and fish food. They also wont tug your leg to take them outside.

So I’m gonna need you to get those biscuits for me by 4pm today.

This guy gets to roam around the office. And takes client calls when his schedule allows for time off from chasing his tail. Aren’t trained dogs just the best?

Give me a minute. I’m sure I left those scanned documents in here somewhere.

What if we told you that this guy can open drawers? That would be pretty amazing, but if someone taught him to restart a computer, he would be invaluable.

These young kids just want to read from a screen instead of a good, old-fashioned book.

Earl the turtle knows the benefits of staying competitive in an ever-changing workforce. That’s why he’s always teaching himself new tricks by reading how-to books. For a turtle pushing 80 years, he can teach you a thing or two about the latest version of Microsoft Excel.

So, you get that email I sent you?

Someone needs to sit Spotty down with HR and inform her that she needs to stop sending YouTube videos of cats chasing laser pointers. It may have been funny the first 15 times, but now it’s distracting.

I’ll have it on your desk when I’m good and ready.

This guy just can’t be bothered to get his work done on time. He’s tired of the hustle and bustle and just wants a drink (of water from a dish, we’re guessing).

I know the presentation is on the 25th! Give me a break, I’ll be ready by then!

Sammy the scorpion is a little on edge. He has a few deadlines he has to meet and he just needs time to get himself sorted out.

Office pets can be good for office morale, and in a small way they remind us that the smallest things can make you happy, like discovering that someone left a full plate of bacon at their desk. Do you guys have any pets in your office?
