Pet Sitters International’s Take Your Dog To Work Day® (TYDTWDay®)

I had to laugh when I heard  today was Take Your Dog To Work Day…that in itself isn’t funny, Take Your Dog To Work Day is for a good cause.

Are you familiar with why this day exists?

From their website:

“First celebrated in 1999, Pet Sitters International’s Take Your Dog To Work Day® (TYDTWDay®) was created to celebrate the great companions dogs make and to encourage their adoption from humane societies, animal shelters and breed rescue clubs. This annual event asks pet lovers to celebrate the humane-canine bond and promote pet adoption by encouraging their employers to supportTYDTWDay. Employers are encouraged to open their workplace to employees’ four-legged friends on this one special day.”

I think this is great!

Aside from joining their owners at work there are dogs with all sorts of jobs. There are:

  • Fire Dogs
  • Police Dogs
  • Service Dogs
  • Dogs in the Army
  • Performing Dogs
  • Hunting Dogs

All sorts of dogs have all sorts of jobs!

I am a Shetland Sheepdog and my breed is considered to be a “working” dog. It is only natural that I would go to work with my Mom.

What strikes me as funny is….my Mom HAS NO JOB!!! BOL! We live in Michigan remember? There ARE NO JOBS IN MICHIGAN!

Mom calls blogging “working from home” whatevah!!! Between you and I, I see her pounding the keyboard in Words With Friends more than I see her working.

SOMEBODY has to bring home the bacon! BONES!

So what do ya think? Ya think I look “business-like” enough to go to work?

I thought so!

Now…if we could just find Mom a job I’d be all set!

Whatever your “job” is, help spread the word about Take Your Dog To Work Day ok?

Barks and licks and love, Dakota
