The Portland Opera office -- as you might have guessed from our live-in costume shop cat -- is very pet-friendly. People routinely bring dogs in; some dogs come nearly every day. Having good-natured pets in the office creates a really great vibe; nearly everybody likes to pet a nice dog. Plus, it means that despite the strange and long hours we sometimes work, we still have the option of owning pets.
In the future, I'll share with you all the other pets of Portland Opera, but this week, we'd like to introduce you to a very special dog.
