Got a furry friend from whom you don't like being separated during the week? Tomorrow's your lucky day! In 1999, Pet Sitters International proclaimed that June 24 is Take Your Dog To Work Day, and the annual pooch-friendly celebration has been going on ever since. The idea behind it is to encourage adoptions of shelter dogs by...we suppose...reminding your non-dog-owner colleagues about how amazing it is to have a canine companion.

On their website, those in charge of the event remind dog owners to make sure that their dogs aren't running wild in the office by bringing a leash and putting up a baby gate so that Fido doesn't make a run for the next cube over. Also -- and this seems fair -- they remind business owners that areas like the kitchen and bathroom can justly be designated as dog-free.
