Did you know that Today is National Take Your Dog to Work Day? Neither did I, strange but wonderfully true. According to takeyourdog.com, Take Your Dog to Work Day, (or TYDTWDAY as they call it) was first celebrated in 1999 and was created to celebrate what great companions dogs make and to encourage adoption from humane societies, animal shelters and rescue groups. It is a day that asks pet lovers to celebrate the humane-canine bond and promote pet adoption.
What an awesome day to celebrate! This got me thinking about how lucky I am to have the privilege to celebrate TYDTWDAY everyday. Working from a home office, I spend my days working alongside my best buddy Chewy.
Today, Chew and I will be celebrating by taking a lunchtime walk while he sports his Petfinder bandana, followed up by a tasty dog cookie from his favorite canine bakery around the corner. We hope everyone gets the opportunity to celebrate, but however you spend your Friday, Happy TYDTWDAY from the Petfinder Outreach team and Chewy!
