Gear Up To Take Your Dog To Work This Friday!

Canines of all shapes and sizes will be joining the workforce en masse this Friday, June 26th in honor of Take Your Dog To Work Day. Ten years ago, Pet Sitters International created TYDTW day to celebrate the human-animal bond and promote adoption from shelters and rescue groups. This year's slogan is "Secondhand Dogs Offer First Rate Love." The event has grown with each successive year and is truly something to bark about! As more businesses recognize dogs as vital family members, more pups are showing up in the workplace. Here's a list of the top ten dog friendly companies:

1) PetSmart
2) Google
3) Banfield, the Pet Hospital
4) Diversified Technical Solutions
5) Sur La Table
7) The Nature Conservancy
8) Dartmouth College
9) ValueOptions
10) Roy Talman & Associates

I am lucky enough to have an animal welfare position where Dewey and Greta can accompany me to the shelter on a regular basis, so every day is Take Your Dog To Work Day for us! To find out how you can participate this Friday, hop on over to the TYDTW Day website.

I love the slogan "Secondhand dogs offer first rate love." I am self-employed, so my dog is in my office every day -- most enjoyable perk to self-employment!

I love the slogan, too! It's *so* true! Your dog is a lucky pup to be able to join you on a daily basis. Isn't it great?
