I love my pets and miss them plenty when I travel. Several months back I wrote about the pain of putting my old dog to sleep. I still think of her.
But for the life of me, I can't understand the mutiny in Davie
over Take Your Pet to Work Day. I didn't even know such a day existed, but it just goes to show how we've gone off the deep end on a day for this and a day for that and equal rights and mainstreaming etc. etc.
They're pets, not people, for crying out loud. Unless they're seeing eye dogs, I really don't want them in the office. Let's stop humanizing these poor animals. In the office, are they learning something? Will they grow up to work as a pharmacist, journalist or teacher?
That, after all, is the original intent of signaling out a day.
