When : June 22nd

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 on 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 1996 by Pet Sitters International.

    This day should have been the other day, the first day of summer. Then it could be called "Dog day of summer at work".

    I had no idea there was such a day. If I took my Shih Tzu to work with me, he'd curl up at my feet and sleep. He'd be no problem at all.

    I wish I could take my dog to work. He's a puppy though so he'd probably eat half of my office before passing out at my feet for a couple hours only to awake and eat the other half. Maybe someday.

    With a 160-pund Great Dane, I dare say that there would little work and much avoidance of "Man's Best Friend" at the work place.
