    Shop Dog

    There isn't much in life better than a good shop dog. Sam the Wonder Dog is gone and missed but Sweet Maggie Dog is still in the shop and under foot. You can't see it but she is next to the bag of rawhide bones, smart dog .

    She is wet from a swim in the pool, also normal condition.

    I know others have a shop dog, let's see photos.

    Here's Skipper - who's always with me in the shop. He's getting up in age but still has a lot of energy.

    My shop dog Nellie.
    She doesn’t mind any of the machines running but hates the push broom.
    She has big ears like a donkey. She can hear so well no one comes on the property without her knowing.

    How about a shop cat?

    George likes to hang out with me at times. He doesn't mind me chopping wood in the wood shed, but banging out a mortiise sometimes sets him off.

    Since Jim let the cat out of the bag....

    My shop is a hand tool shop in the basement, so Taz lays under the workbench or on top of the dryer. She isn't bothered by much. She goes bonkers for mineral oil, so she's banned when I'm finishing up a cutting board.
    She's 17 with inflammatory bowel disease and earlier this year went through a 10 day radiation therapy for a thyroid tumor.

    Emmylou, our 2 year old cat, is too crazy and is not allowed in the shop.

    Madison, our 90 pound black lab sleeps in our bedroom. If an intruder came in the house, they would have a surprise,
    She also goes with me on my morning walk.

    Nathan, Taz looks like she could be related to our cat Turner:

    She used to get out to the shop, but now in her old age she doesn't venture much further than our front yard.

    Definitely similar, though Taz is now 6 pounds due to the thyroid issue. Turner doesn't appear to be missing many meals.

    We did have a cat that was stone deaf. She made the best of it, loved being vacuumed.

    I lost my sweet black lab Ella on new years day last year. I’m still not quite over it. She loved being in the shop and eating sawdust when I wasn’t looking.

    We adopted Annie in June of last year. The pic was taken on the day we picked her up. She had been spayed the day earlier. She’s not quite comfortable in the shop yet but getting there.

    Ron,

    I know the feeling. Labs are such wonderful dogs. A couple of months ago we had to put down Sam our big Yellow Lab. I still tear up when I think of him. Here he is on his last trip to the Oregon coast. The harness is to help him up the steps into the motorhome. Maggie is in the background.

    He spent a lot of time under my feet in the shop. His favorite place was in front of the sharpening bench.
