Default Amazon building to have thousands of dogs

Because amazon allows owners to bring pets to work 1000s of dogs will show up. With limited park space this creates a problem for this urban office building.

**** poor journalism.
In one paragraph it states
Quote:
There is a doggy deck on the 17th floor of one of its buildings — it includes a fake fire hydrant.The company also keeps plenty of poop bags on hand, water fountains, and relief areas. Amazon has even opened an off-leash park in the Denny Triangle.
Then it turns right around 2 paragraphs later and asks the question -
Quote:
Where are all of these dogs going to … go?

The doggy deck and park refer to the seattle office, with 6-7 thousand pets. However Amazon is opening office space in nearby Bellevue and existing office space is not set up for thousands of dogs. I can't imagine how seattle campus handles their issue.

Relief areas are set up in a matter of hours for large dog shows, I bet they will manage.

Am I the only one that imagined the "Doggie Deck" to be an open grated cantilevered deck 17 floors up that showers the street below with what the doggies do?

Imagine HR trying to craft a professional sounding job posting for the dude they're gonna pay to clean up all that doggy doo.

How about leave your animal at home.
These people are no better than the fat lady in the electric scooter at Walmart with her emotional support pot belly pig.

What about employees with allergies?

As far as urban survival I suppose this would be a good place to keep in mind as a food source.
Most of the pansies would probably abandon their animals.

Nope. Theyíd shoot you in the face to get their animal child a seat on the last bus out of town if you were in it when the SHTF.

Iím serious.

I’m serious.
Seattle?
I doubt it.
Those people working for Amazon in Seattle are latte lapping soy boys, the very kind who abandon their pets when the hurricanes come down south.
They don’t own a gun and the fear of even touching one causes their panties to soil.

Nah, those types are all about themselves imo.

I'd rather bring my dog to work than sit next to one of the people like one I sat next to in an office. The guy was a slob and after he left the secretary disinfected his work area with heavy cleaners for almost a day. I can still here him hacking up phlegm into napkins he stored around his desktop.

Of course, I don't want to bring my dogs to work either. All they would do is sleep and make me tired or bark. I have enough crap to do during the day without baby sitting too.

Oh look, your dog took a dump/**** in my cube, how cute.

I was listening to XM today, a comedian was talking about a dog park opening in Modesto or someplace.
He and his young daughter were there, a Yellow Lab took a huge dump in front of them and the owner was just about to snatch the warm gooey glob up with his bagged hand when a little dog came over and ate the turd!
He said his daughter laughed and laughed.
She kept yelling ď look dad, thatís the dog that ate the poop!!!Ē.
Seems the lady didnít like her dog getting laughed at...

Just made me laugh.

Former father-in-law was over one day and I had come in from taking the dog out. Dog had nibbled at a turd when we were out there.

Soon as we get inside dog jumps up on FIL and starts licking his face. I started yelling at the dog to get down and FIL got all bent out of shape telling me how it was no problem and that I should not worry about it.

I let the dog finish licking his face real good before letting him know the dog just munched a turd a minute prior. Never did like that old geezer anyway. Was funny as hell watching him pucker up for those dog turd kisses.

People regard their dogs as human, that's the problem. I see them when I go buy cat food, one place I stopped going to because it would devolve into a snarling match more often than not... dogs, not people.

Can you imagine how that place is going to smell in just a short time?

I will admit, I am not keen on dogs. They eat their own poo, roll in poo, leave poo everywhere and drool on everything. Then to top it off they want to jump on you and lick you with that tongue. Then there are the aggressive biting dogs that clueless owners call their "sweet boy".

Did I mention the insane barking?

Nope not for me.
