Feeling guilty

I have an adorable10 month old Maltese named Curtis who is the love of my life! He is my first dog and I brought him home at 2 months of age. It took only 2 months to completely house train him and he has adapted to life here just fine. My question is this: I am a single woman who works full time. At my old office I was allowed to bring Curtis in with me at least 3 times a week. At my new job, I am not allowed to bring him in at all! I feel horrible leaving him alone in the apartment for up to 7-8 hours all day. Should I a) hire a sitter for at least an hour every day or b)get another Maltese to keep him company or c) stop worrying since he seems fine! Please advise!
