With most of the world in lockdown, self-isolating, social distancing and hibernating at home, there aren’t many winners. Except for our dogs. They are clearly winning at life right now.

After all, with ALL the hoomans at home, there’s plenty more daytime attention for our four-legged friends. And aren’t they just lapping it up?!

Plus, with all these extra hours at home, there’s plenty of time for us to take pictures of our dogs working from home. And then set up an Instagram account dedicated strictly to our canine co-workers.

Because what the eff else are we meant to be doing with all this home-time? Clearly not getting any actual work done.

So, let’s take a break from constant coronavirus chatter and focus on something pawsitive – these dogs working from home, which, so accurately sum up our thoughts when working from home, especially if the kids happen to be home too.

My kids: Mummy, can you wipe my bum?


Literally my face when the kids ask me for another snack and it’s not even 9am…

“Where’s the bloody backspace on this thing?”

“If I stare at the clock long enough maybe it will fast forward to 5pm.”

Me: Can you just give me five minutes to finish this email?

My kids:

“Oh look, another email thread I don’t want to be a part of… “


Co-worker: Check your microphone. You’re on mute

Me (every single time):

Hey kids, tap me on the shoulder when the headphones are on. Go ahead, I dare you.



That 3pm mood.

Kids: Mum, you said you were finished working for the day


Yep. It’s official. Dogs working from home win the internet right now. Take that coronavirus. Sure, you can cancel everything but you can’t cancel the pure pawesomeness that are our dogs.
