June 22nd is "Take Your Dog to Work Day," a day to celebrate the great companions dogs make and to encourage adoptions from local animal shelters.

Studies have shown that having a pet can greatly reduce stress, so having one with you at work can't be a bad thing. If you work for a company that routinely thinks out of the box (kennel), bring your dog to work with you tomorrow. It'll give your co-workers something to do besides waste precious time on Facebook.

If your dog can be trained to actually do your job, that could be a bonus perk for you. Just don't let your boss know.
