It's Take Your Dog to Work Day!

Wooo! Friday, June 21st is the 15th anniversary of Take Your Dog to Work Day! Now, the FiveSibes are among the "working breed" dogs...but they like to do lots of things besides sledding...they are:
  • Official Taste Testers of all thing snacks, 
  • Quality Control Officers for testing toys, 
  • Professional Snoozers and Lickers, 
  • Assistant Editors for my book projects (Bandit, pictured here, really likes those red pens for chewing, I mean editing!), 
  • TV Specialists (they prefer Animal Planet), 
  • Water Quality Testers (they check out the pool water for temperature and fun-ability), and
  • Linguistics Experts, having perfected the Husky "woo!"
They also love to take turns spending time with us in our home office, provided we have a good supply of treats, toys, and oh, yes, a comfy bed!
"Woo, Gib, how do you spell Epilepsy?"
Pictured here, Bandit has joined Gibson as part of my editorial team. She is proofing lots of stories sent in for my latest book on dogs with Epilepsy that is tentatively scheduled to be published later this year. As you can see, Bandit is pretty busy chatting with Gibson about some notes via speaker on her iPhone.

We Need Your Help...We Need Your Votes!

"Vote for me, please!"
Bandit is such a great assistant book editor, that I've submitted her photo below to the Take Your Dog To Work Day photo contest. We'd love it if you would vote for her! And if we win, we will receive $500 donation to a Husky shelter of our choice! Woo-hoo! Please vote for Bandit to help us help other Huskies in need! You can do so by visiting and voting HERE. (And if you could ask your furpals to vote for us, too, that would be just pawsome!)

So, do you take your pet to work with you? 

To check out some tips on getting ready to bring your pet to the work place, be sure to read my article in the current issue, (Volume 2, Issue 2), of American Pet Magazine. Here's a sneak peak:
