Tucson Tails: Take Your Dog to Work Dayby Karyn Zoldan on Jun. 20, 2013, under Animal News, Dogs, Canines, Fun with Fido, Barking Encouraged
If you’re in Tucson and you took your dog to work on June 21, please send a jpeg to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll try to post it here on Friday & Saturday. Just describe your dog’s name, your name, and where you work and anything else you want to share.
Take Your Dog to Work Day is in its 15th year. Perhaps it’s modeled after Take Your Daughter to Work Day which was founded by Gloria Steinem and the Ms. Foundation for Women in 1993.
TYDTWD first started in 1996 in the United Kingdom, and June 24, 1999, in the United States. Created by Pet Sitters International this day celebrates the great companions dogs make and encourages adoptions from local shelters, rescue groups and humane societies.
