Take Your Dog to Work Today!

Take Your Dog to Work Today!

Work can be stressful, and dogs are great stress-relievers. The two are a perfect match! Thankfully Pet Sitters International realized this connection and created, “Take Your Dog to Work Day” about 12 years ago. Today, more companies are starting to allow pets to accompany employers daily, and as Lisa Spector points out in her Take Your Dog to Work Day post, more employees are seeking out dog-friendly companies to work for. (Read her post to find out how employees can search for dog-friendly employers, and why it is advantageous for companies to have dog-friendly policies.)

We’d like to share some photos of Care2 pets in the office, in honor of Take Your Dog to Work Day. The special visitors are posing with various stuffed animals in the Care2 lobby/jungle.

When I was a student we had a professor who always had his two spaniel dogs with him I used to worry about the dogs because of the way they would throw themselves down the stairs and then slide and crash on the landing. I've never seen anything so athletic.
When I was working in a hospital, there would be days when I had to walk to work because my car was being serviced. Then there was no way of keeping my dog Muffy at home. she's follow me into the boss's office, into the wards, into the toilet - just anywhere.
She was delightful, but when the she thought that the boss was threatening me, she lept for his jugular, but fortunately I caught her in midair. As a joke, he had picked up a chair and swung it towards me, quoting the misprint in the rules of the hospital:
"Within the hospital grounds, dogs must be controlled with a chair!" Poor Muffy misinterpreted his move.
