    This is Dexter (with the toy) and Benny (sitting in a client chair).  It's not always easy to work from home...they have strong opinions on what they think of my sitting around all day staring at a screen when there are much better things we could be doing.

    Hi Mary,
    Thanks for posting those pictures! Your dogs have so much personality - what breed are they? Working from home with pets is a blessing (companionship) and a curse (barking while on a conference call!).

    Hi Heidi,

    They are standard poodles (Benny is a rescue).

    Benny does bark during conference calls (i.e. if the UPS truck goes down the street).  He did that once while I was on the phone with a client who said to me - Excuse me?  I told her that it was my dog (not me!) and that I was not literally barking at my clients.  :-)

    Regards,
    Mary

    Misty is 14 and the oldest of our 3 cats.  She frequently visits the office to supervise and meets with special clients.  She is  a great stress reliever, especially in tax season.  None of our prior interns have found a firm that offers this perk.

     

    She also loved studying with my husband Bobby when he was going for his Surgical Technology degree at Nassau Community College.  Whenever he came home with his bookbag, she would run to the dining room to start studying.  She was so insistent on studying that he frequently came to the office first to drop off his book bag so he could unwind before studying.  Her last picture was taken after they both spent an all-nighter studying for final exams.

    Lucy & Romeo are 7 ½ years old.  Lucy is as mischievous as Lucille Ball, so her name is very fitting.  While Romeo & Misty are sleeping, she is thinking of how to get into trouble next.  She even took her own selfie one day!  If she gets into too much trouble she gets time out in the bedroom watching Mickie Mouse Club House.  She loves the Hot Dog Song.  She waits in the window for me to come home and worries if I am out after dark.  Romeo is a lap cat who loves attention.   He is afraid of loud noises, including the doorbell.

     

    Lucy was recently diagnosed with an autoimmune anemia and is real trooper taking all her pills every day.  She is back to her mischievous self.

    Hi Ruth,

    Lucy reminds me of my cat, Kisses, who was also a black and white tuxedo cat. Kisses had diabetes and needed 2 shots/day, but she did not even flinch. Sadly, she just recently passed away, but she was a small cat with a very big personality. So sorry to hear about Lucy's has an autoimmune disorder.  She is such a pretty cat!

    Hi Heidi,

     

    Lucy is the orange tabby.  Romeo is the black and white tuxedo.  The order of the pictures changed when they posted.

    Linda is a future service dog who has been raised by two of our members. She is leaving for her training next week. She is known to hundreds of our members and we will all miss her!

    If anyone wants to say goodbye, she will be attending our August 8th seminar in Riverhead.

    Well, you can tell who rules the roost! Little Rockne has complete domination over the fierce Kenzi beast. Most of the time Kenzi is washing the birds face, meanwhile baby Bailey has grown up and is contemplating what great things the two of us are going to do. It's great having the Grandchildren over!!! :)#GrandkidsareGreat #SummerChallenge ​​​

    This is LillyAnn.  If you want to meet a "love bug", she's it.  LillyAnn and I have been together for 4 1/2 years when I rescued her from a kill-shelter in Georgia.  I can't imagine not having her in my life.

    This is Diesel (big name, little guy) - He loves to pose for pictures and play catch. He is 9 years old but you cannot tell him that. He believes he is a puppy. He is extremely smart and loves to snuggle.
