The role of Shop Dog often goes unappreciated in the grand scheme of shop lore. Our friends of the furry four feet supervise us and keep us company, despite our strange penchant for making noise and fussing about the shop. And they possess a strange gift for making life better just by hanging around.
We think it’s their ability to do so much without looking like they’re trying that makes them such a welcome addition to the shop. To celebrate these tail-wagging Toolmongers, we gathered a few examples of dogs who’ve mastered their shop duty.

2. Wicked Bagger Custom Bike Shop. This worn-out shop dog — exhausted by the duty of keeping everyone working -– takes a quick nap to calm the ragged nerves.
