My Staff Celebrated Take Your Dog To Work Day

Take Your Dog To Work Day (TYDTWDay) is a annual event that is always celebrated on the Friday following Father's Day.  TYDTWDay  was created by Pet Sitters International in 1999 to celebrate the great companions dogs make and encourage their adoptions from local shelters, rescue groups, and humane societies.  This day encourages employers to experience the joy of pets in the workplace and support their local pet community.   On Friday, June 20th, we celebrated at my offices in Manhattan and about forty dogs accompanied their proud owners  to work.  I was out of town on business, but I'm told it was a lot of fun.  Many dogs even got to try on the latest fashions from the Martha Stewart Pets line at PetSmart.
