Today is 'Take Your Dog to Work Day'!

Posted on

Today is Take Your Dog to Work Day, and while I don’t think anyone here at PWHQ will be bringing a poochie to the office (much to my dismay), I do think this is a good reason to talk about the thousands of dogs who are no strangers to the nine-to-five: service animals!

So how come guide dogs and therapy animals are so underrepresented in film and TV? I was really into the book Follow My Leader as a kid (this is totally YA week at PopWatch apparently), but the only movie featuring service dogs other than Garden State I could find was Quill, a Japanese film about the cutest freaking puppy in the history of everything.

Anyway, that supernaturally adorable pup becomes a guide dog. (Warning: that clip will make you cry.)

What did I miss, PopWatchers? Can you think of other instances of service dogs in pop culture? Begin the list in the comments section below!
