Bring Your Dog to Work Day: Just loads of pictures of happy dogs

When all the world is a hopeless jumble, praise be for Bring Your Dog To Work Day.

Friday June 24 is Bring Your Dog To Work Day and it couldn’t come too soon. Strikes, a cost of living crisis, the unending psychodrama of British politics, war in Ukraine, rising Covid cases (again?!), polio, monkeypox, climate catastrophe. Honestly.

So who’s ready for just a load of nice pictures of dogs really happy to be helping their human?

Dolly is adorable and loves helping people out as a bonafide hearing dog.

Ziggy is a PTSD assistance dog and would you just look at that smile. Trauma, be gone.

Merlyn is busy working in her dreams, we’re assured.

Ozzy really, really wants to help but those big ol’ paws just won’t hold a trowel.

Look at all these wonderful companion animals. Couldn’t you just eat them up!

Toby is tiny and just happy to be along for the ride.

‘Hello. Oh, I’m afraid Waiting for Doggo is all sold out.’

All the way from New South Wales, Australia, Elphie helps to deliver the news.

To bark or not to bark. That is the question.
