Illinois Shelter Provides Dogs With Chairs To Make Them Feel More At Home.

As humans, owning at least one comfy chair is something we could all benefit from. But did you know that dogs can get as much use from chairs as we do? To that end, a shelter has decided to provide dogs with some chairs that are nice and comfy so that their furry guests can feel a bit more at home. Think of these chairs as a temporary solution, until these pooches finally get adopted into a permanent home by a family with a big heart. But after being spoiled by the shelter with such comfortable chairs, they might never want to leave.

We could all use a pooch that's leaning over our shoulder like this while we work 9 to 5.

Dogs would probably prefer a chair of their own, which is why the Knox County Humane Society, in Galesburg, Illinois, now provides their pooches with a comfy chair. According to the Society's director, Erin Buckmaster, "they love their chairs."

71-year-old Buckmaster claims that the shelter's decision to give chairs to dogs is the fault of one dog.

Blame Buster Brown! When his human parents called it quits and got divorced a year and a half ago, Buster, who was originally adopted as a puppy, ended up being returned to the Know County Humane Society.

Most dogs might feel a bit bummed at getting sent back to the shelter, but Buster is the exception.

According to Buckmaster, Buster actually appears to be happy to have returned to the shelter. In fact, she claims, "he loves it at the shelter." Then again, wouldn't you love it too, if storytime was part of your daily routine?

There was only one issue with Buster being back in the shelter and that was the kennel itself.

He refused to get inside the cage and insisted on just staying in the front, where the office is, so he could hang out with the staff. So rather than continuing to chair an office chair, the staff decided to give Buster a chair of his own.

Everyone at the shelter loves Buster, so they try to accommodate and tolerate him as best as they can.

Unfortunately, he's a big dog, and there isn't always space available, especially when he insists on laying on the desk or sitting in the same seat with the other employees. That's when the staff came up with a brilliant idea.
