A 5-month-old Pomeranian puppy named Bert was abandoned at an animal shelter for a ridiculous reason. Apparently, breeders decided he was "too big to sell."
Luckily for the adorable pup, Kathy Grayson found Bert on PetFinder and decided to adopt him. She flew all the way from NYC, where she owns an art gallery, to Tulsa to pick up the dog and bring him to his forever home.
Grayson's one problem with having a new puppy was that she spent so much time at the gallery. Since she couldn't leave Bert alone while he was still adjusting to his new life, she decided to do something unusual.
Grayson brought Bert with her to work, and surprisingly the puppy was well-behaved and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings of the art gallery.
"There was just something about the look in his eyes," Grayson said in an interview with The Dodo. "I think that next day in NYC we had an opening at my art gallery with hundreds of people and a dinner and after-party. From day one, Bert was ready to join the art world!"
For Grayson and Bert, every day is "bring your dog to work day." The two of them are inseparable pals and the chocolate Pomeranian has made many friends while at work. People come regularly not just to see the art, but to spend time with Bert.
"Bertie has become our unofficial mascot," Grayson said.
