Are You Celebrating Take Your Dog To Work Day?
June 22 is Take Your Dog To Work Day.
Today is Take Your Dog To Work Day! How are you celebrating?
According to the official website, Take Your Dog To Work Day was first held in 1999 as a celebration of pets and their people:
“Take Your Dog To Work Day 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 support TYDTW Day. Employers are encouraged to open their workplace to employees' four-legged friends on this one special day.”
Charlie the Smyrna-Vinings Patch mascot is in the newsroom today. What about your best friend? Even if you couldn’t bring Spot to the office today, you can still get in on the fun by entering your four-legged friend into the TYDTW Day Photo Contest. Share pics of your pooch in our TWDTW Day Gallery.
