(WHNT) – Today is national “take your dog to work” day. This year marks the 17th year for the event.

It was created by Pet Sitters International (PSI) to celebrate the great companions dogs make and promote animal adoptions. Organizers hope employers will participate as a way to experience the joys of pets in the workplace.

Take your dog to work day is always celebrated on the Friday after Father’s Day.
