We got Georgia when she was 10 weeks old. My wife couldn’t take care of her at the time and I was working on a project at Logan Airport, so I just took her to work. She’s been on Suffolk jobs five or six times a week since then.
Everybody is her buddy. Everyone brings treats for Georgia. We’ve had so many great moments with her over the years. She has a vest, has been to topping off ceremonies at multiple projects, and they even named the dog washing room at the Kensington after her. When we were working on the Encore, she went from desk to desk saying hi to people. Sometimes she’d even fall asleep under someone’s desk. As soon as she hears my voice, though, she’ll come running up to me.
Our projects can be stressful a lot of times, especially with certain sequences. We’ll get into a room and be having some frank discussions about scheduling, and Georgia comes in and calms everyone down.

I'm blessed that I have a job where I can take her with me. We've been so close. We get up at 5 a.m. and hit the road to Boston, get there by 6 and leave the job by 6:30 p.m. Georgia has the whole backseat to herself. As soon as we get on the road, she sleeps. We started this when she was six months old, and she’s 11 now. She’s probably the most famous dog in the building trades in Boston.
