Bring your dog to work day

Today is Bring your Dog to Work Day!! I love that my company participates in this. Once a year everyone brings their dog to work and it's so fun. We have a parade of the dogs, the dogs get awards and we have a pizza lunch together with doggie ice cream for the pups. It's so fun to walk around the building and see dogs hanging out in offices and cubicles. There are many different types and sizes! Sadly, I do not have a dog so I play with everyone else's and go around petting them all. Maybe next year my parent's dog can come with me so I don't have to resort to bringing a stuffed animal dog that looks like her :)

Below is Rory and she lives in Atlanta. She is a black lab and is named after Rory from the Gilmore Girls because it was always my mom and I's favorite show. She was a rescued dog and is so sweet and fun to play with. She loves to sing whenever the phone rings. It's so cute! She also has a major sweet tooth and once ate a whole bowl of icing. She is here with me in spirit on Bring your Dog to Work Day.

(P.S. This was taken a couple years ago and I'm not usually this tan. I had just gotten back from studying abroad in Barbados. I will prob never be this tan again ha.)

Does anyone else have bring your dog to work day in your office?

My dogs would not behave if I had to take them to work. Terriers are much too excitable.

Perfectly Pleasant said...

What a fun idea! There are only 2 people in my office (including me) so ours wouldn't be as fun!

Ms. Attitude said...

Oh, I wish we had bring your dog to work day. That would be so much fun!

Black Labs and Lilly said...

How fun!!!! I wish my company participated, it must be such a great way to break up the day!

I'd heard it was bring your dog to work day! I don't have one (yet) either, but it sounds like you had a great day!

Love the pic - super cute!

That sounds like so much fun! Much more fun than "bring your child to work day" haha. I don't think too many people would be happy to see my big ole doberman trotting along. Poor guy gets a bad reputation from the media's perception of them :(

Study abroad in Barbados; sounds like heaven! I wish my work participated in this. It would be so much fun!!

My husband's company honors this day and he always says it is a fun success!

Mrs. Newlywed said...

That is a great idea! Mr. Newlywed takes Preppy Pug to the studio sometimes, but it is not any sort of official event. He just does it because he can.

Oh my gosh that's so cool!! Rory's a cutie!

Starfish and Sundresses said...

That's so fun!

I'm jealous! My dog is a dachshund and he just wouldn't behave, he would be jumping all around the office.

Erika said...

I wish they would have Bring Your Dog to Work Day at my office. I don't have a dog, but I would certainly like to visit with everyone else's! :)

Pink, Green, and Southern said...

She looks so much like my Cricket! Bring your dog to work day sounds so great. I wish I would be able to do that one day, but I don't think they would want Cricket in the hospital.

Billie Anne said...

I've never heard of take your dog to work day! What fun! I love how your dog is named Rory - Gilmore Girls is one of my favorite shows, too!

Princess Freckles said...

Your dog is such a cutie! My fiance said we can revisit the notion of buying me (us) a puppy after Christmas! I cannot wait!

Kristen said...

way too adorable!! I am a graduate student so I don't have that option but I am so glad you took your dog to work!

Leah said...

What a cute dog! I love the idea of bringing your dog to work. I'm not sure how well my dog would do though. He would probably be way too excited!

Katie said...

Awww I love the idea of Bring Your Dog to Work Day. We don't have that here but I wish we did!!! [Okay so I kind of created my own BYDTW Day last year when my boss was on vacation. My little dog loved all the attention but I got *nothing* done!]

The Blonde Duck said...

I want to bring the Babies to work!

Piper Jacquelyn said...

I WISH! Not that I have a dog to bring with me, but I would find one. A whole bowl of icing, huh? WOW. That's pretty hilarious.

Jessica said...

I've never even heard of it! That's pretty neat - pretty puppy!

Jules said...

I wish we had that, because I would certainly bring one of my dogs in. Our office doesn't participate because there are 1 or 2 people that are afraid of dogs.

Rory is very cute!

Polka Dots & Protein Bars said...

Lis said...
