On Friday I took Bellona to work with me and she had a VERY long day. Normally Bellona will sleep till late morning, have some breakfast and back to snoozing all day. However Bellona’s morning started at 7:00AM with getting up and going to work.
First we made a trip to daycare to drop off our 2-legged daughter. Bellona was NOT happy being left in the car for 3 minutes alone. Then we had a 45 minute car ride and we pull up to a mysterious 4 story building.
We make the trek from the parking lot with all of Bellona’s essentials. I must of looked silly carrying all the bags of her things (food, bowls, AM medications, bed, treats, toys…).
We made it to the elevator and Bellona was somewhat hesatant. I can’t remember if Bellona had been on an elelvator before or not. We could have taken the stairs – she’s a tough Tripawd but with carrying all of Bellona’s essentials I needed a break.
We made it to the office and I took Bellona around to meet everyone in my department to say hello before going to my desk. Mostly I think eveyone was shocked and supprised of how well Bellona does on 3 legs. Some of my coworkers have read Bellona’s blog too so they were aware of her story and I didn’t need to come up with a silly excuse of how she lost her leg.
After Bellona met the 20 + people in my department and was pet, adored, and given yummy treats Big B was ready to go home right then and there. So was I – it was Friday after all.
Bellona got several potty breaks outside and got to do some sun bathing on our lunch. It was a rare sunny day in the NW and Bellona wanted soak it up.
A woman from our purchasing department that is currently fighting cancer and going through Chemo came by to meet Bellona. She asked what happened and I told her about Bellona’s cancer and that Bellona has went through 6 rounds of Chemo. I felt bad that Bellona wasn’t bald too but I felt hopeful for my coworker. I hope she felt that if Bellona can fight cancer then she could too.
Bellona didn’t nap at all while at work. Even 2 days later Bellona is still really tired and has slept most of the weekend. It was worth getting a tired dog so Bellona can inspire others.
I’m glad I work for a pet supply distributor so I have the opertunity to take Bellona to work and educate more people that a 3-legged dog is not torture and my Tripawd Warrior deserves to live and kick Cancer’s ass.
