What would be the dream life? Sleeping all day, taking a dump anywhere you want and having someone else pick it up, having people serve you food whenever you like. And, on top of that, being named Employee Of The Month without doing any work. That doesn’t happen in real life.
However, one such employee does exist. She is living the dream at Accuride, a manufacturing and hardware company. She has been named “Employee of the Quarter” consecutively for the entire year.

Meeka, as you can clearly see, is a dog. As she lives in the owner’s office, which just also happens to be his home, she can qualify for the award. She doesn’t plan to resign anytime soon, either.

People love dogs. And people love stories of dogs. So, when Madison Reeg tweeted pictures of Meeka’s awards, it took the internet by storm. Michael Reeg, owner of Meeka and a distribution sales manager with Accuride, spoke with the Dodo, told them that this award is very much fair and merit-based and that Meeka won it because of her hard work.
“There are times that I’ll even talk to her as I work through a problem or map out a customer solution,” Reeg said. “I try out my sales pitches and presentations on her. She’s not easily impressed or swayed. All she hears is ‘blah, blah, blah, Meeka’—but she likes to hear my voice, and I love that she pays attention. Having her in my office all day is something that we both look forward to.”
Accuride also supports Meeka and encourages her work. According to the spokesperson: “Meeka is an outstanding support to Michael and his work. Dogs are the best.”
Working dogs? The world is getting better already.
