Take your wiener dog to work Friday

The Age of Melbourne, Australia reports on dog-friendly companies down under:

“BUTCH, come here!” pyjama king Peter Alexander says to his mutt. The half-dachshund, half-something-else scuttles across the hot pink carpet and jumps on his lap.

Meanwhile, pure-bred dachshund Betty roams the open-plan office, which resembles a Barbie-doll house.

No one seems to mind, and not just because she’s the boss’ dog. Alexander’s employees are encouraged to bring their pooches to work.
