Today is Bring Your Dog To Work Day and, quite frankly, we’re devastated there’s a no-dog policy in our office. Somebody needs to sort that out.
To coincide with the day of joy, researchers at the University of Lincoln conducted a survey (commissioned by Purina, mind you) and found employees who often take their dog to work report 22% higher satisfaction with their working conditions.
In other dog-related news, a major study this week shined a light on puppy dog eyes (not literally) and the fact doggos have actually evolved to look sad. Studying the facial anatomy of wolves and dogs, scientists suggested that dogs have developed a small muscle around the eyes which allows them to raise their inner eyebrow more intensely, giving them that ridiculously cute look that renders humans the world over totally powerless.
