There’s a reason why dogs are a man’s best friend. They love you unconditionally forever and ever and that’s really the only reason you need for them to be your best friend. After learning what dogs dream about, you will feel the same way your dog feels about you for them.
Now that you’re feeling the love, meet Meeka a pupper that has been loving her dad’s new job. There are only three staff members at Accuride International Inc’s southeastern sales HQ. Well there’s only one human that is.
That would be Michael Reeg. He, Meeka and Kya (another dog! two dogs in one story for the SAME price!) complete the sales team now that Reeg works from home.
Reeg works as the district sales manager for the drawer slide manufacturer, very exciting stuff, and found out quickly working from home could get boring.
He said to The Dodo:
“Transitioning to a home-based position was quite a change. It’s quiet here. You need to get yourself fired up and excited about the day. Having a faithful companion in the office certainly helps.”
Speaking from experience this is very true, I work with a dog at my feet at all times. We have scheduled meetings that he’s never late for, it’s great.
Even though she can’t talk Meeka really helps out Reeg out in many ways, he continues:
“There are times that I’ll even talk to her as I work through a problem or map out a customer solution. I try out my sales pitches and presentations on her. She’s not easily impressed or swayed. All she hears is ‘blah, blah, blah, Meeka’ — but she likes to hear my voice and I love that she pays attention. Having her in my office all day is something that we both look forward to.”
Now anyone that isn’t a dog lover might say Reeg was crazy, but we all know he’s exactly right. Dogs are the best listeners and probably give you more feedback than your co-worker Sharon.
Kya isn’t impressed with any of this work nonsense. So the employee of the month award is only between the two…anddd Reeg isn’t going to give it to himself right?!
Even when Reeg goes out of town for work, Meeka hung out in the office all by her lonesome.
Madison, Reeg’s daughter said to The Dodo:
“I was not surprised at all when my dad first showed me the framed picture of Meeka as Employee of the Quarter because Meeka is very loyal to my dad and his (their) work. I just thought it was hilarious.”
She just keeps on winning!
Somehow word got out to the actual company Reeg works for and they support one of their best “good boys.”
They said that Reeg “sends an update after every quarter. Meeka is an outstanding support to Michael and his work. Dogs are the best.”
I mean they aren’t wrong!
