Just Another Example of How this Company is Going to the Dogs

Middle Management Business Cartoon

My wife and I know a lot of dog people. We had a dog for 12 years. I like dogs. Dogs are friends of mine.

But I wouldn’t say I’m a dog person.

One day I was watching a dog person saying something about their pooch along the lines of “Oh, look at her sitting in the chair! She thinks she’s people! Silly, girl, you’re not people, you’re my sweetie pie puppy! Yes you are! Yes you ARE!”

And the whole dog-thinks-it’s-a-person thing got me thinking. And then my thoughts turned to the office. And then “middle management” drifted into my head and I had this cartoon.

Side note — I think it’s super funny that the dog is just completely placid. No expression at all. I don’t know what that says exactly, but it makes me laugh.
