Take Your Dog to Work Day
Today we celebrate national Take Your Dog to Work day which is, in my opinion, a fantastic way to treat your pet to a change in his or her routine, and to lift the spirits of your fellow associates.
The trouble is, we can’t celebrate this wonderful occasion at our firm the way we’d like.
Not that we can’t bring our pets in because we don’t have them, or because we don’t want to, but because our building owner prohibits pets inside our four walls.
In the past, when we have smuggled our dogs, cats or birds (yes, birds) into the office, the smiles and positive comments have been very rewarding. It’s truly a win-win situation for all. Yet, we did get busted by another tenant and have been reluctant to break the rules again for fear of being asked to vacate. Really.
For those of you who are able to celebrate this day, I hope you have and trust it was fun. For others like us, perhaps we should band together and lobby our respective building management teams for less restrictive guidelines.
Can’t wait to get home to see my dog.
