Take Your Dog to Work

Will Fido go to work with you today?
That's the goal of the Pet Sitter's International (PSI) organization for their annual "Take Your Dog to Work Day" campaign. July 26, 2009 is this year's designated pooch visit, if your employer is so inclined. The day was created in 1999 as a way to recognize the bond between pets and people and to emphasize the importance of adopting a shelter pet.
And if you're seeking a pet friendly job, according to the SimplyHired website, the top 10 employers currently hiring are:
3. Banfield, the Pet Hospital
4. Diversified Technical Solutions
5. Sur La Table
7. Nature Conservancy
8. Dartmouth College
10. Roy Talman & Associates
My employer is not on the list, but do not fear. As an alternative we're celebrating Keep Mom Home From Work Day. We plan to sit tight in the a.c. and chill.
Wherever your day takes you, have a wonderful weekend!
