Another special day on the calendar of odd commemorations and causes, it's Take Your Dog to Work Day!
Apparently one in eight workers in the UK already take their dog to work - that's a massive 3.5million people (where do all these people work? They can't all be shepherds). And according to the Blue Cross, it's being recognised that workers benefit from being in the company of animals - studies have shown that it's a great stress-buster and lowers blood pressure.
The day is also used as a fundraising event by the Blue Cross. A nit late o get involved now, but there's more information here.
