A Day In the Life of Pete

He shows up early every day, bright eyed and bushy tailed. Spends the day taking naps, running around in the grass, and trotting around the shop like he owns the place. He gets lots of love from the other employees, you might even go so far as to say that he's the favorite.

Wouldn't you agree that these are all qualities that make up a great employee?

Well, maybe not, but they do make up a great shop dog.

Most of you probably already know Pete. If you don't know, or haven't met Pete, he is a very hot commodity around here.

I thought all of you Pete The Dog fans out there might like to see what a day in the life of the shop dog here at Unruh Furniture looks like. Here it goes!

7:30am // Pete shows up to the shop with his owner, Cody (our master finish guy!) and grabs a bite to eat to fuel up for the work day. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day you know.

7:35am // Pete takes a quick power nap while his food settles.

7:45am // Assume your positions everyone! Pete makes his way down to the finish room with Cody. This is where he spends most of his day.

8:30am // It’s time for Pete’s mid-morning nap. If only it were acceptable for humans to nap at work.

10:00am // Pete makes his way up to the showroom to see if there are any customers he can greet. He obviously knows he’s adorable.

11:00am // It’s play time! Pete usually makes his rounds in the shop getting a little love from all the guys.

12:00pm // Socializing is exhausting. Back down to the shop for another nap.

2:00pm // Time to soak up some mid-day sun on the porch. Can you tell he thinks he runs the place? It’s Pete’s world and we’re all just livin’ in it.

3:00pm // Pete checks in with Cody to see if he needs any assistance in the finish room.

5:00pm // It’s time to start winding down for the day. Pete is ready to head home to rest up for another day at work.

There you have it! A typical day in the life of Pete.
