"First celebrated in 1999, Pet Sitters International’s 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 asks pet lovers to celebrate the humane-canine bond and promote pet adoption by encouraging their employers to support TYDTWDay by opening their workplace to employees’ four-legged friends on this one special day."
Luckily our boss LOVES dogs and the one person in our office who isn't a fan was out! Woo hoo! So our boss agreed and even allowed Darwin and her bff Juneau to come in the office.
As you can see Darwin was thrilled to be in.
Just kidding it's been a while since she's been allowed to come to work with us and she LOVES coming in. She loves all the attention and just being with us!
She also loves apples and managed to score a few that day.
We have a few new interns and employees and they were all fascinated that a dog could love apples. So after I had given her one, our coworker gave her another small one so everyone could watch. Then another new guy ate an apple and gave Darwin the core. They tried to give her more but I was worried about too much fiber!
At lunch we took a long walk with Juneau down the waterfront and to the sculpture park. On the way there Darwin found a toy leopard sitting on the ground so she picked it up and carried it with us.
Our walk included a stop at the pet store for treats and a stop at the butcher in the market to restock our supply of knuckle bones (we usually get a big bag and keep it in the freezer at home). I wanted to find a small food toy to keep Darwin entertained and found this Monster Mouth toy by Jolly Pets.
