Working from home gives you the opportunity to really get to know your pets and all their quirks. When I worked out of the house I was certain that the dogs would sleep all day and then be ready to play by the time I got home. Being home means they don't sleep as often and they're ready to play, bark at the mailman or pathetically beg for a tiny morsel of my lunch. Lola was laying on the floor with her neck stretched as far as it would go just so she could rest her chin on the edge of my chair. It looked really uncomfortable and entirely hilarious.
