Work Like a Dog Day
About Work Like a Dog Day
When is Work Like a Dog Day? This holiday is always observed on August 5
Do you work harder and longer hours than anyone you know? Are you a workaholic? If you answered yes to either or both of these questions, then you will appreciate Work Like a Dog Day. This August 5 holiday recognizes, honors, and appreciates the hardest working among us. After all, our jobs are tough, and somebody has to do the work while the rest of us take another coffee break.
Some people skate by, doing as little as possible. Others do only what they have to. Others still work like a dog. While work is to be done, they dig in relentlessly. They seldom take a break until the task is completed.
We want to make sure to differentiate between “Work-A-Holics” and those who “Work Like a Dog”. Work-A-Holics are always working, even though they may not be working hard. Those who work like a dog, work very hard while they are working. But, they do not work all of the time.
Today is a day to show appreciation for those who carry more than their load and work like a dog. You can also honor them by working like a dog today.
