Day 13 - Where I work

I thought it was such a good idea that Jacki posted pictures of where she worked, decided I'd do it too. I work two days a week at our Cross Stitch shop (unless the owner is out of town - then I have to work more - have decided 5 days in a row are not nearly as much fun) and Frosty goes to work with me. (Frosty is a working dog - a teacup toy poodle in serious need of a haircut.) His job is greeter, watch dog and customer service - and he's very good at all three. If you look closely at the first picture, you'll see him standing in the door when I went outside to get the photo.
This sign is in the window when Frosty and I are at work. We have customers who come in just to see Frosty - and my boss tells me they're disappointed when he's not there.
This is the inside of the shop - as Cross Stitch shops go - it's a really nice one. Much of my time there is actually spent cross stitching. Frosty has his own bed in the back and that's where he is if I'm stitching - but if that door opens (a bell rings), he's gone to the front to greet whoever's coming in.

Oh I love the shop! How wonderful to spend your days doing something you enjoy that's creative! And Frosty is too cute - is he a Bichon? Poodle?

Frosty is a teacup poodle in sad need of a grooming. I've been taking him to the same groomer since he was a puppy - called last week for an appointment and I can't get him in till AUGUST 26. So, he's gonna look even bushier.

He only weight 3-1/2 pounds, but looks bigger with all his 'fur' right now.

I love the "Frosty is In" sign! Too cute! I think Frosty is due for a raise...

Now Chewy wants a job like Frosty!

I always enjoy businesses that have animals -we have a Mail Plus store here that has a silver schnauzer named Millie and she watches the door just like Frosty does. I think Frosty is much cuter though.
