Sundays are quiet at work, and I asked the boss what she thought of me bringing the ferrets in for a shift - she said "do it!" So I did! They mostly hung out in their travel cage and out on the front table, and they each did a harnessed tour of the shop at some point.

Porom helps me with special orders.


I turn teh pages!


Oh, hello. You buyin' somethin'?


Sniff snuff


Freya waits for visitors.


FreyaBum.

Hello big person! You should buy all teh things!


Posing.

Distracted by a jingly thing I found for her.


Hai Barrett!


Not many photos of Barrett, even though he was out and about the most of all three - he was mega energetic.


... until he wasn't.


Porom investigates the counter displays.


Awaiting her customers.


Sniffing the smelly, smelly pork skin.


An hour into my shift and this happened.


This is Mouton, a regular store visitor. He adores the ferrets. They slept through his visit.


All done! I'll be bringing them to work again sometime, the customers loved them and it was great PR for ferrets in general.

That is AWESOME.

It's so much fun to bring your pets to work! :D
It is! I continually debate bringing Finn, but he just wouldn't make a good store dog. He gets waaaay too overhappy and overexcited at ANY dog, and keeping him behind the counter all day would be kind of sad. He's happier at home playing with the roomies, haha.

Even the ferrets will only come in with me on shorter weekend shifts. Weekdays are too busy between deliveries and customers to be too concerned about my animals being comfortable at the store too.

Aww that's so fun! I wanted to bring Sawyer to work with me, but the owner has her three dogs there every day and she feels that's enough store dogs for one place.

Thanks guys! We indeed have a ton of stuff - were a TINY shop (like... boutique sized) so we have to be very creative with merchandising to get everything to fit. :p I spent an hour and a half today moving things around on the dog toy wall... and it STILL looks confusing and cluttered. Augh!
