I love dogs. I mean, have you seen corgi butts?

If I had a corgi, I’d probably bring it everywhere I go – maybe even to work.

And that’s exactly what this lady in Bangkok, Thailand did. The only difference is that her dog is a Poodle-Shih Tzu mix named Mazda.

Okay, that’s it. I’m naming my next pet ‘Audi’. 

Yup, a street sweeper in Thailand went viral after a picture of her carrying her dog on her back took the internet by storm.

Look at how adorable he is.

It even looks like Christmas came early because he seems to be wearing a Santa Claus outfit.

Mazda, the year-old Poodle-Shih Tzu mix can be seen casually ‘hanging around’ (no, really) on his owners back as if he’s a real-life dog backpack, and he doesn’t seem to be bothered at all.

Toyota (Mazda’s friend): Whatcha been doin’ all day Mazda?

Mazda: Oh nothin’, just hangin’ around with my best buddy. Quite literally.

Why Does She Bring Her Dog To Work?

Mazda’s owner, Thitirat Keowa-ram, 28, had asked her boyfriend to buy her a dog to keep her company.

Ah Hock loved Michelle and asked her, ‘Ai stead mai?’ in the 90s. Today, he tried again but would it work? Prepare some tissue paper and watch their love story here:

She told CNA Lifestyle, “My boyfriend agreed under the condition that I bring it to work.”

Can you guess how long she has been carrying her floofy dog to work now?

1 year. 

That’s a pretty long time to carry a dog that weighs almost 10kg on your back. I’m surprised that she hasn’t popped an ab or two.

Bring-Your-Dog-To-Work A Trend In Thailand 

Apparently, the bring-your-dog-to-work trend is gaining traction in Thailand over the past few years as more companies adopt a dog-friendly policy and believe that bringing your dogs to work can decrease stress levels.

I just spoke to my editor and told him that if we don’t have dogs in the office by next week I’m handing in my notice.

Just kidding, please give me my paycheck.
