While there are many things that set the Madonna Inn and Madonna Enterprise offices apart from other work places, "dog-friendliness" is one of my favorites. Our K-9 counterparts truly seem to enjoy seeing their other human and doggy friends around the office, and create a relaxed and easy-going work atmosphere. My dog, Rita, gives me the excuse to get up and walk around when she needs potty breaks and eat lunch on the grass while her and the other dogs play. As Roger Caras (host of the Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show) once said, "Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole."

Yesterday I woke up to a cloudy, grey sky and spent the whole morning feeling rather glum. By noon, the sun had warmed off the fog and the cerulean sky was cloudless and clear. After a bit of lunch I took a walk outside to soak in the beautifully vivid landscape, and Eureka -- I felt like a cheery, new woman. Much like the morning brume, my own gloominess had all but burned off as well.
