-- Today honors and recognizes the hardest working among us. Some people skate by, doing as little as possible. Others, do only what they have to. Others still work like a dog. While work is to be done, they dig in relentlessly. They seldom take a break until the task is completed. We want to make sure to differentiate between Work-A-Holics and those who Work Like a Dog. Work-A-Holics are always working, even though they may not be working hard. Those who work like a dog, work very hard while they are working. But, they do not work all of the time. Today is a day to show appreciation for those who carry more than their load and work like a dog. You can also honor them by working like a dog today.

Read: Working Dogs
-- Humans and dogs have shared a close relationship for thousands of years. Today, there are around 600 million domestic dogs living throughout the world. Many of them are trained to perform important tasks. These working dogs pull sleds, assist the disabled, protect us from harm, and search for lost people. They work alongside farmers, soldiers, and hunters. Readers will discover how working dogs are bred and trained and how these hardworking canines find happy homes when it comes time to retire.
