Happy “Take Your Dog To Work Day”

I’ll bet you didn’t know about this week’s most important holiday: Take Your Dog To Work Day. It’s celebrated each year on the first Friday after Father’s Day, so this year it falls on June 24th.

While I’m a big fan of Take Your Parents To Work Day, the thought of an office full of canines gives me pause.

But some people seem to like it, so I’ve written them a limerick:

Happy Take Your Dog To Work Day!
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I thought bringing your canine to work
A superb way to look like a jerk.
But I’m wrong off the bat:
Take your dog (not your cat)
To your workplace — a holiday perk.

    Love the limmerick and love more the idea of the chaos of everyone bringing their dog to work. My dog was so hyper that it would have been one big dog fight. I am still laughing at the idea. Hugs, pat

  5. Very cute limerick. And… I LOVE dogs, but think an office full of them would be too much! :)

    That’s ridiculous. Now I can see a Take Your Livestock To Work day. You could butcher them during your morning break, and Bar-B-Que em for lunch.

    For me, that would be a sure way to the unemployment line! Oh, wait; I’m already unemployed!
