Je Me Voir Dogs

Evidently, today is "Take Your Dog To Work Day". There are clusters of orange TYDTWD balloons tied up on all the lampposts up and down the street from my office. The TYDTWD people have taken over the small park across the street, and have set up various tents and tables, passing out propaganda of some sort, and probably recruiting new TYDTWD members. The Animal Welfare Society arrived with a pickup truck towing a large trailer (? filled with dogs?) And just now an entire parade of roughly 40 people and 40 dogs came down the street, which apparently had been blocked off to traffic, with police escort.

I don't want to sound like a hater, but it is really all that appropriate to bring your dog to most work environments? I mean, if you're self-employed and it doesn't violate any health codes, fine. But if you work in a bank? A law office? A restaurant? A medical office? Drive a bus? Hmm. And, not to be a smart-ass, but if these people took their dogs to work today, how is it that they are marching in parades and hanging out in the park? Overall, Max and I are having a little trouble with this. And when is TYCTWD, anyway?

There really ought to be a TYCTWD. The Cs look so awfully smug in the morning when I tell them I am going to work.

Oh, don't be so cranky, TG! You can bring Max to work anyday. And have you seen most restaurant kitchens? I think most dogs would be an improvement. The health codes are a joke, to be frank....
