News Reel - Take Your Dog to Work Day

Happy Take Your Dog to Work Day!


Take Your Dog to Work Day was first celebrated in 1999. It was created to promote pet adoption from shelters, humane societies and rescues. Pet Sitters International has this to say about Take Your Dog to Work Day:

On Friday June 25, 2010, businesses, animal shelters and pet-care professionals from around the world will work together to better the lives of shelter dogs everywhere. Thousands of businesses will GO FURRY to promote pet adoption by opening their doors to employees’ furry, four-legged friends on this day in celebration of the great companions dogs make.

Did you bring your dog to work today?

Well, of course. But I'm lucky to have my own business.
They go to work about three days a week, they ask for days off after that:)

Work is still work. But my dogs are just happy to be there, and they help break up the day.

Wish me some luck, DDF?
I needz it.

Wish I owned a business ... I've always wanted to. Don't know why. Grew up in the store my parents ran - maybe that's it.

Good luck. Best wishes. Hope all goes well.

Why am I wishing you luck? How's that horse?

Maggie & Mitch ... that's awesome! You're lucky to be able to do that.

bermudabluez ... Super! I love spending all day with the furries.

Fisher ... I'll have to look into that - I don't know if there's a take your cat to work day ...

Mudi Puppies ... that's great! Bet it was fun.
