Wednesdays around here are typically reserved for “Adoptables”. But, when I realized that Take Your Dog to Work Day celebrated dogs AND adoption…well.
Pet Sitters International, the world’s largest educational association for professional pet sitters, (Barks and Blooms is a member) started Take Your Dog to Work Day in 2007 to celebrate dogs, to encourage adoption from humane societies, shelters, and rescue clubs.
This year, the 15th annual TYDTWD is Friday, June 21. If your business is participating, let us know about it!
Dolly is a 3 year old spayed yellow female. She is up to date on her shots and is heartworm positive; Lab Rescue will pay for her treatment. She is good with other dogs and is approved for kids aged 10 and up. She weighs 47 lbs but should be closer to 60. She knows some commands including sit and come and will benefit from additional training. She’s very friendly and loves to be around people. She can be a bit shy at first but warms up quickly. She likes to retrieve and play with toys.

** PET OF THE WEEK ** What’s black, brown and sweet all over? Give up? Me! My name is Baby, and I am a very friendly Rottweiler mix. I love other dogs, and of course I love people. I was surrendered with my sister Sadie (a dachshund) because our family was no longer able to care for us. Sadie was recently adopted, so now I need to find my forever home! I am a real gentle dog and have so much to offer. I have good manners and walk well on a leash. Please stop by and visit with me soon!
