While I like to say that everybody loves my Pug, Dharma... It's probably more accurate to say everybody loves the family dog!

That's why Pet Sitters Internation started promoting the Take Your Dog To Work event back in 1999.

According to their web site, it's a day to celebrate the companionship our pets provide. And, to encourage adoption from shelters and rescue groups.

If your office participates, Pet Sitters does have a few tips:

1) Keep your dog on a leash.

2) Use a baby gate to make sure they don't escape from your area.

3) Have a back-up plan just in case your dog isn't comfortable at the office.

Of course, there are lots of great shelters and rescue groups here in the Ark-La-Tex... Including Petsavers, the humane society, Animal Welfare, and various rescue groups.

Trust me, rescued pets have a LOT of love to give... Dharma was a rescue!
