Back to School Shopping is the best part of a new school year. In addition to buying new backpacks, pencils, and notebooks for the kids, it is also a great time to get a few things for yourself. Whether you have a traditional office or work from home, a few fun accessories make working more enjoyable. Even if you are trying to go paperless, you probably still have a few pens and papers in your possession. Why not let them reflect your dog obsession? Thanks to my sister, Alice G Patterson Photography, for these images!

I love my personalized notepad from Noble Friends. Even boring lists become better with those faces on them!
No matter how long my to-do list is, things are more enjoyable with fun office accessories. My Doxie d-clips always make me smile.
I probably squealed when I found these Bulldog pushpins.
Plants are great for removing toxins in the air and giving me a mental boost. If you have pets, make sure all plants are either pet-friendly or out of reach! My dogs are short, so anything on my desk is out of their reach.
Like many of you, I always need the right pen for the job. My sisters know this, and they fully support me. I have all kinds of markers, colored pencils, and pens. Check out these awesome pencil bags they gave me!
Soy candles from Wear Wag Repeat are great whether you are living with dogs or not. They smell great and are safe around dogs. Puppy Breath actually neutralizes odors.
If you are lucky enough to have dogs for office mates, you’ll need to make sure their needs are met. Theo and Nelly are always in the same room as I am, while Sophie is a little more independent.
Theo is a cuddler and would often spend time in my lap, which is wonderful, but it makes it harder to type, as he likes to rest his head on my left arm. Since I bought his new bed, he hangs out there while I’m working. (And I can type a lot faster with two hands instead of one, which gives us more time to play.)
Staying hydrated is important for people as well as dogs, so I always make sure they have access to water. A white carpet might seem like a questionable choice for a house with dogs, but since two of my dogs are white, and Theo’s hair magically turns white when he sheds, it actually is a great color for us!
