Meet Oscar and Gracie: Lab Security.

Three years later, I walked into the office and was given a similar greeting. Oscar warmed up to me fairly quickly, especially when I came back with a bagel for my breakfast. I was warned that Gracie would take a lot longer, averaging anywhere from a month to a full year (that poor undergrad still bribes her with treats and love on a daily basis). So I waited patiently to be accepted.
Two days later, she greeted me with a lick and started sleeping under my desk (apparently one of her preferred spots). E and her husband are still floored that she warmed to me so quickly. I claim it's because she can smell Jaxson and Daisy on me.
