Take Your Dog to Work Day

Today is Take Your Dog to Work Day - a holiday to celebrate the bond we have with our dogs and encourage adoption.  First celebrated in 1999 and founded by Pet Sitters International, thousands of pet owners will be celebrating this 15th annual event.

Here at For Love of a Dog, my dogs accompany me to work every day.  In fact, their full-fledged members of the For Love of a Dog team.  

Jeffie is in charge of security and does a fabulous job patrolling the perimeter.

These days Rudy is in charge of puppy-care and keeping Rosie out of mischief.

 Each of the Talking Dogs is a great spokesdog for adoption.  Jeffie and Rosie were both listed on Petfinder and adopted from an animal shelter.  Rudy, the product of an oops pregnancy, found us at the vet's office.  

When I'm in my office working on the computer, I have two dogs under the bed and one at my feet.

When I'm in the studio creating my dog lover jewelry, all three are usually napping and playing around me.  On good weather days, they might head outside to patrol or engage in some Jolly ball play.

On rainy days, you'll find them napping or having some fun with a KONG.
 Security patrolling is hard work.  Frequent naps are needed!
KONGs stuffed with something yummy is good... but so are KONG toys!

I have a posse.  I travel with a pack of three.  24/7.  I wouldn't have it any other way.


  1. Jeffie and Dakota BOTH work security!! BOL!
    Cody is in charge of culinary and relaxation :)
    Love the photos!

  2. I guess Shiner is always working with me these days too :) When I worked at the vet clinic, she hated coming to work with me but at least I got to be around other people's pets. My father used to take his sheltie to work with him almost everyday until she passed away. And his dog before her too.

  3. When I write at home, the doggies help by supervising, keeping a vigilant eye on the neighbors, and occasionally stopping to step on the computer keyboard - all valuable additions to the process :-)

  4. Sounds long as you are together with the pups, life is good, just like our house but right now we are just 2 dogs :)

  5. I wish I could go to work with mummy or that she could work from home:-( Looks like fun though!

  6. Of course 24/7 loved by your dogs, its PAWsome. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  7. I get to bring my dog to work every day too. Lucky us! Best co-workers ever!!!

  8. What a delight to be by your animals 24/7. I took my kitten to work yesterday.

  9. Sounds like the BEST JOB EVER! I love having my two dogs with me every day too. Work is so much less stressful this way.

  10. Your dogs are lucky to have you home with them all day. Love the pictures.

    I sometimes think our doggies are happy when we go off to work because then they can

  11. The pictures are gorgeous.

  12. I think Rudy has too many tasks, maybe you should give up the keeping Rosie out of mischief part? Tee Hee

    Have fun,

    Your pal Snoopy :)


Go ahead... bark at us!
