Friday is the 10th annual Take Your Dog to Work Day, dog owners are encouraged to bring their pups with them to the office. This isn’t really an official holiday so before you pack Fido’s lunch bag you may want to check with your boss.
The day “was created to celebrate the great companions dogs make and to encourage their adoption” by letting nonowners witness the bond between dog and man, says a Web site promoting the occasion.
“In today’s economy, pet adoption is the most eco-friendly and budget-conscious option for finding your next four-legged best friend,” said Patti Moran on her Web site, president of Pet Sitters International, which came up with the event.
Thousands of small and midsize companies are expected to participate, said Moran, as well as some large ones, like Johnson & Johnson and Disney.
