Waited until I was married to get a dog. I had fish beforehand on an auto feeder but that’s probably not what you meant.


Be married before getting a dog (or going into consulting)


Have a dog. Have a traveling wife. We have to have friends and family watch her often. It helps she is the best damn dog there ever was. My wife wanted a second dog and I said no way, no one will watch two dogs. But we straight up have a line waiting to watch our one dog.


I have 2 dogs and believe it or not, it’s so much easier


Cats are so easy because they’re so self-sufficient. I just have an have an automatic feeder/waterer. When I started traveling I got a second cat to keep each other company while I was gone for a few days.


Non traveling roommates come in clutch


I work remote completely not the norm


Following. Would really like to find out before getting one.

I have a dog but also have and live with a non-traveling SO. They keep each other company while I’m gone.

Looks like im going to have to re-home my Husky.

I don’t board my dog 4 nights power week. I asked if they have people who do it and they said yes. My dog goes to day care 5 days a week because I work from home and he’s a distracting puppy. I get a package so it’s cheaper than the daily rate which is $28 in my area. Their boarding rate is $45 a night which includes day care.

I had a dog while my husband and I both traveled. My husband travels a lot less than me. But when we both travel we took our pup to a trusted dog sitter. It adds up but still significantly less than kids :)

Any 🐠 at Lakehouse?

I have been seeing this guy for a while now that I really like but things have never been stated as exclusive and he’s working through a ton of trauma so isn’t ready for things to move really fast. I am okay with that but I did say that means I might talk to other people. I have been talking to this girl (I’m bi) who it mostly seemed like friends but all of a sudden it because super sexual and flirty. I’m normally kind of a serial monogamist so I’m just trying to figure out how to respond to her


I have a very nice, Southern client who always calls me "girl" when I speak with him. I think it's a term of endearment(?), but he doesn't call the male partner "boy." I haven't said anything, but it grates a bit. Any thoughts on what (if anything) I should do?

Hi all,

Need some assistance on comp negotiations with Splunk. Interviewing for a Customer Trust Analyst position and recruiter has base sitting around 110-115k base with 10% bonus and 30-40k stocks.

Does that sound about right? Or should I be shooting higher ?

Currently at D making 90k. 4 YOE


After lurking and lusting for a couple of years.... Just bought the hesalite speedy pro. I'm in love. 😍 First entry into the luxury watch space too!


Has anyone flown JetBlue recently? I heard they’re making you pay for carry-on luggage now, but not sure if it applies to me. The policy says for flights booked after Feb (applies to me) and depart after July 20 (which doesn’t apply to me).


I was recently offered a position with a high profile person, with an emphasis on their having a "strong personality" - in the past, this has meant very volatile or otherwise. Have you dealt with this? It would be an amazing opportunity and salary but I just don't know if it's worth it


Any datejust suggestion for women’s and in a small wrist? 💁🏽‍♀️
