Today Marks the Official ‘Take Your Dog to Work’ Day

Friday, June 26th, 2009

I used to joke that when I had my own business, I was going to allow my employees to bring their dog to work with them. My dogs have always made me smile when I have had a bad day and I have never really minded the slobbery mouth, laying on my lap while I am typing. Today marks the official ‘Take Your Dog to Work’ Day and many businesses will be expanding their workforce to allow employees’ furry friends in the office. According to TakeYourDog.com, “Take Your Dog To Work Day was created by Pet Sitters International to celebrate the great companions dogs make. This annual event encourages employers to experience the value of pets in the workplace, even if just for one day!”

The goal of this event is to not only celebrate your dog, but to also build awareness for local animals shelters and rescues. Visit www.TakeYourDog.com for more information on how to take part in this event. While my four dogs join me at the office every day, lets use today to celebrate our four-legged best friends.
