I received an interesting email that I would like to share with my pooch friends and their human companions and all my readers: "Take Your Dog to Work Day." Businesses across the country are increasing the "canine employment rate" on Friday, June 22. A recent study released by Virginia Commonwealth University touts the benefits of dogs in the workplace, citing reduced perceived stress and increased job satisfaction for employees with their dogs at work. Busi- nesses across the United States and abroad will experi- ence these benefits firsthand and promote the urgent need for pet adoptions on Friday, June 22 as they participate in the 14  annual celebration of '"rake Your Dog to Work Day." (TYDTWDay) created by Pet Sitters International (PSI). There are thousands of organized pet adoptions events each year, but TYDTWDay is one of the longest running online campaigns and the only event that focuses solely on celebrating dogs and educating pet owners in the work- place. If you go online, you will find Adopt a Pet and enter the official 2012 TYDTWDay Photo contest. To learn more about the event creator PSI visit www.petsit.com. This should be very interesting, so take a minute and check it out. I am certain you will enjoy this and also visit PSIStore online, the largest specialty retailer of products for pet sitters and pet-sitting business owners. That's all for howl Remember to keep our streets clean pick up after your pet.
