Did a bark, woof, or ruff (or perhaps a coo from an excited coworker) fill the halls of your office last week? Friday, June 22, was Take Your Dog to Work Day, a day dedicated to bringing man's best friend into the workspace. This 14th annual canine celebration helped promote pet adoption, as well as the benefits of having Fido at work -- which, according to recent research from Virginia Commonwealth University, include reducing stress and making the job more satisfying.

Got to love the contents of this inbox. File under, "CUTE".

Companies like Amazon, Google, P&G Pet Care, Clif Bar & Company, and Ben & Jerry's already have open-dog policies. What about your place of business? Would you welcome a dog in your workplace? Why or why not?

Let us know your thoughts in the comments section. And in the meantime, take a look at a few furry friends that made it into the office on Friday.
