National Work Like a Dog Day – Aug. 5th

Aug 4, 2016 | All About Animals, Holidays

Tomorrow, August 5th is National Work Like a Dog Day. So what exactly does the phrase ‘work like a dog’ mean? The English language phrase is believed to have derived from the hard work demonstrated by working dogs; whether herding sheep, hunting, providing service or assisting with rescue operations. Essentially it’s about giving it your all and going that extra mile, all while maintaining a positive attitude (or tail-wagging as the case may be). Our animal companions derive joy and excitement from their ‘jobs’, which is something to be inspired by. Now, if your particular canine companion spends the day napping, snacking, and playing with toys, then by all means – feel free to work like a dog that way too.
