The Department of the Interior Goes to the Dogs

That is, employees brought their dogs to work

For Friday, May 5, Zinke made the decision to invite his employees to bring their dogs along with them to their offices. Citing morale benefits and the opportunity to foster a better work environment, the secretary explained his decision to implement a “Doggy Day,” a first for any federal agency.

The first iteration of “Doggy Day” is part of a pilot program to see if the office could permanently be opened to pets. “Today is our launch,” said Zinke. “We have rules. We looked at some corporations that have dog-friendly environments as a template, and then we had a dog committee.”

Employees who chose to bring their dogs to the office on Friday were given the opportunity to take a picture with Secretary Zinke in his office. Needless to say, the puppies were very excited:
