I’d like to amend the QOD to “Would you bring your dog Or Cat to work….. actually, how about, Would you bring your Pet to work if you could.
That includes everyone…. unless you don’t have a pet….. in which case…. go get a cat! *hehe*

QOD: Yes. I was able to bring my dog to work, so I did a few times. I’m working from home now, so my dog and cat are always at work.
Which makes this (pet) momma a little jealous 😉
QOD: If I had a dog(which I happily don’t) I would take it to work if I was the only employee and had no customers to interact with. Other than that, I would leave it home.
QOD: I don’t have a dog, but I work from home, so, yes I take my cats to work with me every day! They like to sleep behind my monitor, where it’s nice and warm. Or sometimes sleep on my FiveFingers – http://instagram.com/p/b6OBadSeu7/
QOD: Its funny you ask that, at work this week we talked about bringing our dogs into work. Knowing its not possible, but all the benfits of having them there. I get doggie guilt alot when I’m not home to walk him or spend time with him.
I would love to bring Brody to work, however he doesnt have a brain yet, his Lab brain is in high gear and would drive anyone mental.

Nice sharing the bench with you Kevin, solid last set. Thanks Denis for stepping in to spot when Kevin had to step out.
QOD: Personally if I “was allowed to have a dog” and he/she was well behaved I still don’t think I would bring my dog to work if it was allowed, too much extra responsibility. That being said I don’t mind other people bringing their dogs’ to work. I met a lot of nice dogs that way and the crossfit pooches being most of them.
I listen to this guy on the radio every day, here’s a little tid bit about taking dogs to work:
WU x 1
12 KBS(35#), WB (14#, 10′), BJ (21″)
Double down day!
Deadlifts x 3
Front squats x 3
QOD: OF COURSE! although I may not work very well, I would be easily distracted by their cuteness. I have a dog and a cat, and I like to think they are the cutest pets of all time. I’m very jealous of Vince who works at home, and tell him all the time. And I hug my pets every day before going to work. I know, I have a few lose screws…
QOD: I was going to say HELL YES! But then I realized that if I brought Winston to work, he’d be stuck in the van all day 🙁 Poor Winst.

Double Strength Day

5x 85, 95, 105, 115, 125
QOD: Yes, I would love to take my dogs to work. Would ease my guilt and pressure to try and make it home at lunch.
I would certainly be much happier to go to work every day if I could bring Winston with me. He would sit at my desk with me, he’s such a good boy. Too bad he can’t, I absolutely hate leaving him home alone all day. I’m thankful that he’s so well behaved that I can bring him to the gym with me in the mornings. He leaves me no choice though, he knows the difference between my CrossFit alarm and my work alarm – when the 5am one goes off, he gets up and starts pacing around and panting in my face until I get up. When it goes off for work, he doesn’t budge. He may not look excited to be there in the morning classes, but he is. lol
I love Winston! He is so cute!
Cassie is the opposite… gym alarm at 5am – no bulge! I bet that would quickly change if she came to the gym with me – they are such smart creatures!
Winston….aka Eeyore…..what a sweetie. So happy to have him as part of the 6 a.m. crew….and he was actually excited this morning to share a treat with Carly.
Snatch + OHS (3+2)
I only did one strength today (kind of). Really slow with some mobility and stretching in between. My body feels beat up… Good thing I have my first rugby game of the year tomorrow morning!
QOD: No. Lilly-O would not come to work with me. Mostly because she is still a puppy that needs serious training(I swear we are working on it) and the other reason is I work with kids and as if they need another distraction in the classroom 🙂
But I would if it was feasible. I hate leaving her home all day.

Nice sharing the bar with Gabe & Gerry great work tonight guys!
QOD — No I wouldn’t bring my dog to work. Daisy is already far too needy, time apart is good. I don’t feel guilty leaving her behind ever, she has a great home with us; much better than she had at the SPCA. If anyone is looking to add a dog to their family, look no further than the pound Daisy & Carly are fine examples of the great pets you can find there.
And Winston too, he’s an SPCA dog! I love the plug for the SPCA, you’re certainly right about that – they put the best dogs on the spca, and our dogs are proof of that! I’ve met Daisy, she’s a sweet dog!
I meant to write that they put the best dogs on the adoption floor
