New York Paralegal Brings Her Greyhound to Work

“Bring your dog to work day” sounds like a great employee motivational treat to me, but New York paralegal Karen Coots, employed by attorney Frank Como in Waverly, gets to bring her Greyhound Star to work every day.

Star is very laid back in the office, Coots said, and she added that Como doesn’t mind having her around, as Como used to have a Black Lab named Molly that came into the office with him.

Coots adopted Star from Keystone Greyhounds. Star isn’t the only “legal hound” in the area. Coots’ friend Debby Moore adopted two Greyhounds and coincidentally gave them legal names: Legal Lawyer and Motion to Strike.

The Daily Review article doesn’t say what Moore’s dogs’ nicknames are, but I can see my neighbors’ faces now if I were outside hollering at the top of my lungs for my dogs, “LEGAL LAWYER! MOTION TO STRIKE! MOTION TO STRIKE!”

  1. I had three office dogs over the years, all Goldens. One of them even had his own business cards.

    People would often take one of Robbie's cards even if they wouldn't take one of the attorney's.
