Working at home poses special challenges and one of them is keeping other people and pets who might be home with you occupied so you can get some work done.
Once Lila is fed and walked and I'm ready to get to work in the morning Lila goes to hang out on my bed to watch what I've come to think of as Doggy TV.
I open the blinds and window so she can watch birds, cats, bugs, rats...yes I said rats (thanks neighbors)...go by. There are only three channels on Doggy TV--Shubbery, Garbage Collection and Landscaping. Garbage Collection and Landscaping are too much for her so those get turned off (i.e. window closed-blinds down) immediately when they come on. Shrubbery is on all the time though and it works really well for keeping her out of the way and happy for most of the day.
