June 24th is "Take Your Dog to Work Day"- an appropriate observance?

I can understand the sentiment behind this "observance." A lot of people love and own dogs and care very deeply about them. Dogs are even seen as family members as well they should and that's all good. The thing is that I'm not so sure that everyone bringing a dog to their job is such a good idea.

While bringing a dog to the office might work, But roofers, sanitation people, medical personnel, librarians, and restaurant workers would be hard-pressed to bring their dogs to work, I would think. A dog would be a distraction and even a hindrance in many cases. And what about supervisors and other bosses?

I also like dogs, but believe that there are more appropriate ways to recognize them as great pets, friends and family members.
