Default What do you do when at work?

Ok, so I'll be getting a pup in a few months, and I'm curious what you do when you're at work. I work for an ambulance service, and there's a chance if I talk to my boss, could keep the pup "kenneled" in the ambulance bay (during chores and ambulance calls), and play outside as much as possible, but if that doesn't pan out...I'm curious what I should do.

I don't want to miss out on the bonding period. I'm gone 12 hours a day for 3 days per week, and hubby is gone M-F 7-4 for his job. I don't want to leave the pup at home in an outdoor kennel (first off, I don't want her stolen, and second, the bonding period again).

Is there anything saying I can't leave her with a friend during those work days? My breeder is the friend, and they're set up for dogs - outdoor kennel with littermates, indoor kennel when weather is bad, and for feeding/etc.

What have you done in the past, and what would you recommend? (Ideally, I'd like to win the lottery and quit my job and play with a puppy all day, but I don't that that's going to happen). :/
