Ruff! Celebrating Take Your Dog to Work Day
Today is the 10th annual Take Your Dog to Work Day, created by Pet Sitters International, an association for professional pet sitters. Our colleagues this year and others have written about people participating: Rep. Linda T. Sanchez (D-Calif.), for example, and the Waldorf law office of Greisman & Carroll.
Zcomm, a Bethesda PR firm, has five furry friends joining the workplace today, the first time they've officially celebrated TYDTWDay. Though the office has sort of unofficially celebrated before: CEO Rise Birnbaum's dog occasionally joins her in the office, he didn't come in today.
The firm also made a donation to the Washington Animal Rescue League and is paying for the care of a dog, Twyla, until she is adopted.
Noah joins Diana Thompson at Fred Wyrostek Plumbing Inc. in Owings, Md., every day. She's the office secretary, and he's a 3-year-old Australian shepherd. He greets everyone who comes in the door, Thompson said, and likes sitting in the boss's chair when the boss is away.
Unfortunately, no dogs (that I know of) are at The Washington Post today. Did any dogs join you? Take a photo and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Struttin' Mutts, a dog-walking and pet-sitting company in Northern Virginia, helped organize events related to Take Your Dog to Work Day at Meridian Title of Alexandria.
To reognize the day, representatives from the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria came to the office with Roxy the dachshund and Mo the boxer mix, both of whom are up for adoption. Mo's seven brothers and sisters are waiting to be adopted, as well. Wonder if they're all that cute.
