Downtown Baton Rouge celebrates ‘Take Your Pet to Work Week’

Downtown Baton Rouge is going to the dogs - literally.

Businesses throughout the downtown area are inviting pets and their owners to come on in and enjoy what they have to offer.

In honor of “Take Your Pet to Work Week”, several downtown restaurants and hotels are opening their doors to new four-legged customers.

There will be special “yappy hours” and lunches for people and their pets.

Many business owners agree that bringing a furry friend to work can help everyone in the office.

"I worked in a big sales organization and everyone always came into my office, you know, if they were stressed out or whatever,” stated Alicia Baron with the Downtown Business Association. “So, I know when you have a cute little puppy in your lap, everybody chills out!"

This is actually a terrible article. Not because take your pet to work week is a bad idea, I love the idea, but there are events going on downtown ALL week (including a festival tonight!!). I was looking for information on these events. Not another picture of huey, who nonetheless is adorable. This article gives no real information pertaining to the event.
