Bring Your Dog to Work Day

Yesterday my office hosted its annual Bring Your Dog to Work Day in support of the American Cancer Society Bark For Life event. The day began with a doggie meet-and-greet, and the dogs hung out around the office throughout the day. We wrapped up the afternoon with an ice cream social, complete with ice cream doggie treats! I didn’t have a pup to bring to the event, but I did get to doggie-sit while one coworker was on a call. It definitely made for a lively day at the office!

I’m not a ‘large dog’ person, but I have to admit that the Great Pyrenees is a beautiful creature. You can tell how big this one is by comparing the size of my husband’s hands to her head. This one is only 9 months old…not even full-grown yet.

Take Your DOG To Work Day?

You read it right – my office hosted Take Your Dog To Work Day on Friday. We had about fifteen dogs in the office, and for a couple of hours they were all in one room for some festivities. It sounds like complete chaos, but the dogs were on their best behavior at all times. Why did we host Take Your Dog To Work Day? I’m so glad you asked. Our staff wanted to promote a fairly new American Cancer Society event called Bark For Life, which is basically a Relay For Life for dogs. There will be two Bark For Life events in Kansas City this April/May. If you have a dog, you should look to see if there’s a Bark For Life in your area!

This dog should have won a ‘cutest face’ contest!
