There's A Holiday On June 22nd You May Have Some Fun With!

Get the doggie treats ready and rinse off the pooper-scooper. No need to leave your best buddy at home. That is if the boss is ready to take part in Take Your Dog to Work Day. This annual event brings people and pets together in a special way on a special day. Dogs go to work. Hearts are touched. And if you're lucky, your dog will poop right on top of the boss' desk!

June 22nd will be ninth annual day devoted bringing Rover into the office cubicle. The trade group Pet Sitters International is behind the event. If you are looking for the perfect way to celebrate your pooch while positively impacting the lives of homeless dogs everywhere, you definitely want to be a part of Pet Sitters International’s Take Your Dog To Work Day. This annual event encourages employers to experience the value of pets in the workplace, even if just for one day! Ultimately, it’s about encouraging pet adoptions from shelters, humane societies and rescue groups.

Studies show that pets in the workplace boost employee morale, productivity and even sales! TYDTWDay is a great public relations opportunity and lots of fun! Participation in TYDTWDay helps save the lives of homeless shelter animals in your area and around the world! All you have to is sign up, give your dog a really healthy and huge breakfast, take him to the office, let him get excited, then sit back and watch the fun! Imagine the joy your client will have when Sparky is humping his leg...I'm sure they'll be appreciative!

A 2006 APPMA survey indicated that one in five companies allows pets in the workplace. According to the survey millions of employees felt that pets in the workplace lead to a more creative environment, decreased absenteeism, improved productivity and helped co-workers get along better. However, if this is a concern for your employer, there are many PSI members willing to offer their services on-site. These professionals can help with potty breaks, dog walks and other doggie needs.

This is a nice idea but I'm wondering who is really going to clean up the poop when my dog lays one of his typical massive dumps! Heck, I can't bring my gardener because it's not Bring Your Gardener Who Picks Up Your Doggie's Poop to Work Day!

PS: That's My Dog Toby!
