Paper or plastic?
Nothing says your work is appreciated more than having it ripped to shreds in front of your eyes, literally.
We had a newsroom visitor today. Copy editor Melanie Smith brought her Lhasa Apso “Pepper” to work for the day. “Pepper is a pretty quiet guy beneath that layer of hair. He spent most of the day quietly sniffing the area around my desk or stretching out for the occasional nap. He does have one funny habit though, he loves to rip apart paper.
I have never seen a dog have so much fun with a simple piece of paper. You can make his day by wadding up a sheet of newspaper into a ball and then tossing it at his paws. He pounces on it with a fury as he goes about his work tearing it into strips.
I don’t know, maybe he disagrees with the paper’s editorial viewpoint or just maybe he just likes the taste of ink.
