About Take Your Dog to Work Day

When is Take Your Dog to Work Day? This holiday is celebrated the Friday after Father's Day

Have you been working like a dog at the factory or the office lately? Bring your dog and put him in your place. We know he will work hard and do his best. Today is Take Your Dog to Work Day. There is a risk in doing this. We know he won’t complain, as he always wants to spend more time with you. But, what if he does a better job than you!?

They say every dog has its day. No bones about it, 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. Your dog will 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!

Sorry, but equal rights laws have 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 ………….

How to Celebrate Take Your Dog to Work Day

Once your dog has arrived at your work…now what? What do you do with him? Will there be organized activities and a luncheon in his honor!?

  • Have a luncheon in his honor.

Today's Quote

“The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment.” – –  William Bennis
