TYDTWD.gifGreetings dog lover! It's Take Your Dog To Work Day on Friday 14 September and The Blue Cross is again calling on pooches up and down the country to lend their owners a paw at work for the day. Now celebrating its twelfth year, this event is a national celebration of the bond that people share with their dogs. Every year, tens of thousands of dogs bound along with their owners on this special day to work places across the UK. Last year, thousands of you took part and the events of the day attracted attention right across the globe. This year's event officially launched by cast of The Bill We teamed up with the cast of ITV1 drama The Bill to encourage people to take part in Take Your Dog to Work Day. The actors' support for the event coincides with the introduction of The Bill's first animal character, terrier cross Harry. Harry is pictured with Ali Bastian, who plays PC Sally Armstrong. Walk this way... For this year's event, The Blue Cross, in association with Hill's Pet Nutrition, is encouraging dog owners to take a break from the rat race and walk their dog during their working day. Pedometers up for grabs To help you monitor the number of steps you take with your dog for this year's event, the first 500 people to register online can order a limited edition pedometer, complete with calorie counter. Remember, always seek advice from your vet on the correct amount of exercise your dogs needs. Read about the benefits of walking for you and your dog The serious stuff The event is organised by The Blue Cross and asks dog owners to consider how they can spend more time with their pets. As well as promoting responsible pet ownership the event also raises funds for the charity, allowing it to continue its work caring for unwanted and sick pets. Registration is free, owners are simply asked to fundraise for The Blue Cross. Want to be part of the action?
