Two years ago on Take your Dog to Work Day, I was in Louisville, CO, at the offices of Sounds True – our wonderful publisher for Through a Dog’s Ear and a Care2 partner. While there, I interviewed owner and founder Tami Simon, who said, “having dogs in the workplace humanizes the people. They stop to pet the dogs, and pause for beauty. And there is a warmth that comes from having the dogs with us. We are coming together as a community to actualize our lives and have more fulfilling day to day lives. Dogs add to that quality. When people feel part of a community, they are much more likely to enjoy their work.” The Sounds True dogs are so famous that they even have their own webpage. At the top of the page, you’ll find a quote by Tami’s adorable Cocker Spaniel, Jasmine: “Spiritual awakening would be nice, but first I’d like to learn how to open the fridge.”
I work from home these days. But, when I owned my music school, Sanchez and later Gina accompanied me daily. Sanchez pretty much grew up there and loved his job of greeting students. To this day, I’m convinced that he inspired many students to keep playing music.
