Captain Spanky's vacation ended today and he rejoined his barn friends, but not before meeting a whole lotta new fans and friends while learning what it takes to be "An Office Dog". Here are some pics from Spanky's "Day at the Office".
Here he is taking a ride to the barn lady's office campus. Spanky looks a little apprehensive about this strange new place and what kind of reception he'll receive. After all, people have given him funny looks before, though he sure doesn't know why.
Spanky: "will these people be nice to me, barn lady?"
Barn lady: "Yes Captain Spanky, don't worry - they'll love you!"
On arriving at the office, the Spankster took a tour of the area and was introduced to several of the barn lady's co-workers.
Here he is meeting Giant's fan, Tony Rabanal who is awed by Captain Spanky's athletic musculature.
Spanky showed Tony his wonderful manners by doing a nice sit-stay (he'd really rather sniff through the contents of the trash can, but barn lady told him to "leave-it" so he did)
Good boy Spanky!
Next he visited Jeffrey Lowery who gave him a nice "behind the ear" massage.
Spanky: "Hmmm..... this whole office thing isn't so bad after all! Being an office dog is kinda fun!"
In the meantime, word got out that there was a very special visitor in the office and several fans showed up to admire Spanky who then showed them how well behaved he could be. The Spankster showed them his sit-stay, shake, down, and leave-it. They oohed and ahhed and some said he was better mannered than their own personal dog! And yup, Spankalicious was a special favorite with the ladies!
Perry Canete is used to little purse sized dogs, but loved his velveteen coat and gentle demeanor.
Spanky: "I'm just a hunka hunka bully love!"
Here are Russ Siciliano and Captain Spanky having a "heart-to-heart" conversation.
Spanky: "pushing those buttons in front of that gray thingie is work?"
Russ: "Yes Captain - its brain work, and using your brain so much can be very stressful. But thanks for giving me a big hug -I feel so much better!"
Finally though, the barn lady went to work on her computer so Captain Spanky settled down to do his job as an office dog / assistant......
Good job Captain Spanky!!
