The new downstairs neighbors have a smaller dog. By the sounds of its incessant barking, it's in the 15-20 pound range. Methinks we have separation anxiety. Thank goodness it isn't a yappy tiny dog.
My co-workers seem to be cycling through a combination of allergies and respiratory bugs lately. People are being knocked out of work for a couple days to a week with fever, cough and general miserableness. I'm glad I got my stint out of the way early.
