People love their pets. So much so that they’re nowadays considered to be part of the family. We’ve previously reported that it’s not uncommon for dogs, cats and other animal companions to hang out in law offices—even when clients are present. Bringing Fido or Whiskers to work may create a more relaxed atmosphere, and it can provide a welcome distraction from the intensity of legal pursuits.

This week, we’d like to ask you: Does your workplace allow pets? Do you ever take your pet to work with you? How does the pet help you stay busy? Do these furry friends still make good office companions?

Please answer in the comments.

Also, if you like, send us a photo of your pet at work to [email protected]. Be sure to provide a brief caption that includes information about your pet.
