Welcome to the Dogs of Lance series where we sit down with our favorite canine freelancer friends to hear what they have to say about running their business.

What does your typical workday look like?

After I go for my daily morning workout (10 min walk TBH), I have a nourishing breakfast followed by my snack of choice. If I’m lucky it’s a piece of fresh red pepper. I then head to my desk where I catch up on emails before I take my first nap of the day, which is followed by a second, third, and evening nap.

Which of your human’s habits can’t you stand?

She’s always all up in my space! Whether it be hogging the entire bed when I’m trying to get my beauty sleep, or when she puts her feet in my face when I’m in my favorite nook under my office desk, she’s always bumping into me!

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

I’d love to be able to open doors by myself so I can go outside and take my daily sunbath whenever I please. That, and being able to magically turn every meal into a steak dinner.

What keeps you motivated to hustle?

My human gives me healthy brain-boosting treats every day that fuel my creativity.

On a scale of 1-10, how good are you at saving?

I’m a big hoarder of all things, I still have my first toy which is 10+ years old, so I’d say I’m pretty good.

What advice would you give other freelancing pets?

Choose your human wisely.
