Take Your Dog to Work Day

Friday, June 20, 2014

Take Your Dog to Work Day

When : Friday after Father's Day

Today is Take Your Dog to Work Day. And, we've just gotta ask "Why!?"

They say every dog has it's day. Well, that day has arrived. Today, your dog gets to join you at work today. Of course, this assumes that your (wonderful) boss will allow it.

Once he arrives at work, your dog can tag along, following you on all of your work chores. He'll be at your side all day long. He'll frown at those dog eared papers n your desk. He'll end the day happy, but dog-tired.

Now, that' we've had our chuckle, it's time to recognize that this is a serious holiday for "Man's Best Friend". It is sponsored by Pet Sitters International. The objective is to recognize the importance of dogs in our lives as both companions and protectors. The organization also encourages you to help homeless dogs. One way to do so, is to adopt a dog today!

Question for the day: Once your dog has arrived at your what? What do you do with him? Will there be organized activities and a luncheon in his honor!?

Sorry, but equal rights has yet to arrive in the pet world. We have not found a "Take Your Cat to Work Day", or a "Take Your Parakeet to Work Day", or .............

The Origin of Take Your Dog to Work Day:

This very special day for you and your dog was created in 1999 by Pet Sitters International.

It was created to recognize dogs as great companions, and to encourage adoptions of dogs.

For more information, see Pet Sitters International.

    Well, I have all three of my dogs every day. DH on the other hand works in a mental hospital so don't think that taking the dogs to work is a good idea for anyone involved! I sure hope that they understand!

    Since I am a homemaker my dog is at work with me every day. DH works at a hospital so would be hard for hime to take her.

  Isn't it great when you walk into a family-run business and the family pet is relaxing behind the counter or strolls out to meet the latest customer. It's like a therapy dog for commerce.

    Love this! Didn't know there was such a day!

Wouldn't work with my dog though; he has dog ADHD. LOL! He's very active and into everything.

My cat on the other hand....... emoticon
