This meme [to the right] is for all of you dog lovers out there! Where I currently work (i.e. PTC’s Boston Seaport HQ), there is a Polka Dog Bakery that opened up sometime around late Summer/early Fall of 2019. It was quite a coincidence because a year prior my wife, daughter, and I got a beautiful little Golden Retriever puppy. Needless to say, we spoiled that little puppy and now she’s a full-fledged highfalutin dog. Anyway, we spend a lot of money (too much!) on our golden with regards to treats and toys. Heck! We even have pet insurance through my company! Anyway, when I started working at PTC, it turned out to be quite a boon for our dog that a Polka Dog Bakery was literally in the street-level retail (or should I say, “re-tail”?) shops of the very building that is my company’s HQ. Needless to say, every week I’ve been averaging about $35 – $45 dollars (sometimes more) on bully rings, chicken chewies, turkey sausage sticks, cod skins, Henny Penny treats, and lots more for the dog. I’ve gone there so many times that the manager and some of the staff know me by name! LOL! Anyway, it’s all worth it when I get home from work and she’s waiting for me in the yard. I usually reach into my work backpack and pull out a little treat for the pooch and she goes crazy over it. I’m such a sucker for a furry face!
