A Sheltie’s Work is NEVER done! #takeyourdogtoworkday

Hi my furry friends! Today is “Take Your Dog to Work Day!” Now, since I am a “working” dog or a “herding” dog, EVERY DAY is “Take Your Dog to Work Day” for me! I  work 24/7 as permanent security and I am doggone good at it! I even blogged about it a while back!

Also, since Mom “works” from home, (ok she CALLS it work, but I don’t call playing Words with Friends and playing Song Pop all day WORKING, but I digress…..) so I am ALWAYS at “work” with her! Truth be told it is ME who is always working but I will let Mom believe that she is.

More than just a fun day in the office, Take Your Dog To Work Day was created to give back to the pet community from which PSI member pet sitters earn their livings. While the event offers a fun opportunity to have dogs at work, its purpose since the inaugural celebration has always been to encourage pet adoptions.

Since 1999, PSI has promoted pet adoptions through this annual campaign. To further this mission, PSI created the Pet Adoption Advocate of the Year Award in 2012 to honor one PSI member each year who has gone above and beyond to promote local pet adoptions. PSI makes a $500 donation to the animal shelter or pet-rescue group of the recipient’s choice.

Whether your dog is able to join you or not, there are numerous ways to support the day: 

The world’s leading educational organization for professional pet sitters since 1994.

    I got to be with boss-boy the other day while he did all his work at home stuff, (he has a job but he lives hundreds of miles away from it, so he is a telecommuter.), at my home…now that was fun, snoopervising him:)

  6. Anything that promotes pet adoption, we’ll give a high paw to! In honor of Take Your Dog to Work Day, I’m gonna watch over mum in the studio. All day.
