Take Your Dog to Work Day

June 26th is Take Your Dog to Work Day, according to Pet Sitters International:
First celebrated in 1999, Take Your Dog To Work Day was created to celebrate the great companions dogs make and to encourage their adoption from humane societies, animal shelters, and breed rescue clubs. This annual event encourages employers to experience the value of pets in their workplace for this one special day to promote pet adoptions.
A really useful feature of PSI's website is the Pet Sitter Locator. All the members have undergone an education program created by the organization, and all active PSI members are able to purchase comprehensive coverage designed specifically for pet sitters. Every PSI member who presents you with proof of coverage via a valid Business Insurance/ PSI Insurance Card or Certificate of Insurance guarantees that they will have a minimum of $10,000 coverage for your pet(s) and contents in your home.

Are you allowed to bring your dog to work on this day, or even regularly? Do you support dogs in the work environment? What effects do you notice when your pet is at work? Leave me your comments and experiences in a note on the blog.
