Sorry, Fred - I can't seem to delete this answer or modify it. Ugh. I was trying to post a photo of our office tarantula - so yes, we're pretty pet friendly, in the office, at home, and with our clients. And with the vet school at CSU, some of our clients have some pretty strange pets.

No pets at work.

Although I did sell a horse property once and brought Peroni to that once vacant and let him run around for a few hours while I had my photo & video crew out there.

Yes I have a dog & she can go anywhere I go. The office is sorta tolerant but I no longer have a private office so I don't bring her.  Meet 'Bella the Blunderdog'.

I have found that buyers with no pets are more difficult and up tight. 

I have had horses, goats, dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, hamsters, hermit crabs, fish, birds, turtles and snakes.

I really hope that "the happy cat" in the picture thinks that the squirrel is her baby and she is taking it in to love...I love squirrels and have also fostered squirrel babies after hurricanes.

Yes, I allowed pets into the office...perfect ice breakers.

I prefer pets over people!!!  We've always surrounded ourselves with dogs, cats, goats, horses . . .  at the moment we have only 1 who we adopted at Christmas.  Her name is Holly and she's 6 months old, weighs under 4 pounds and is a chihuaha/poodle mix.

I am lucky to work right out of my home and so I get to spend every day with my three favorite doggies, Diamond (Westie) and Dusty Buster (Schitzu) mine and my daughter's Kona Bella (Beagle) who used to stay with us 3-4 days a week while she was at work ... I don't take them on appointments although they are the greeters when customers stop in. If you are stopping in you better bring Treats!  They keep me busy with taking a break every two hours to take a visit outside to chase squirrels, rabbits or to take care of their business.

We have 2 dogs and a crazy cat.  My "office" is at home so they can come and go as they please.  The cat usually takes up residence on my lap while I check email etc every morning.  In my line of work I do deal with the issue of pets...I try to eliminate any evidence of them when possible.  Not because I don't like them, and truthfully, most buyers are ok with pets, but since my job is to help my sellers appeal to the widest array of buyers, I try to accommodate those who aren't animal lovers as well.

Glad to hear the rodent in your picture survived Fred Griffin .  I would say at least 50% of my clients (Buyers and Sellers) are pet owners. Our family pet list at this time is two guinea pigs and a parakeet, none of which have ever been to the office. One of my associates brings his little terrier in on occasion.
