Take your dog to work this Friday
This Friday 26 June is National Take Your Dog to Work Day here in Australia. This is a fantastic initiative we're hugely supportive of here at
If you're interested in taking your dog to work this Friday, take a look at these useful advice from the RSPCA.
If you need some science to support your request to your boss for permission to bring your dog to work, why not quote the  2012 Virginia Commonwealth University study  which shows that employees who bring dogs to work produced lower levels of cortisol, the hormone released during times of stress, and the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention research showing that interacting with a pet can decrease blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
If you can convince your boss to let you take your dog to work this Friday, drop me a note at  and I'll send him or her a hand written thank you card, ( and if you send me a photo of your boss with your dog at work, I'll send you a little bundle of dog goodies as well :) 
p.s. if science doesn't work, maybe just try showing them this pic of a basket of adorable puppies.
