"Hello… I'm sorry: all the humans are busy at the moment… can I take a message?
#Bringyourdogtoworkday
 
Another fantastic 'Bring your dog to work day' has come and gone, and at Hubble & Hattie, the studio and offices were once again echoing to the sounds of ‘oohs' and ‘aahhs.’

And the occasional ‘woof.’ 
 
The event is organised by Hownd, and raises funds for the charity All Dogs Matter, which aims to rehome dogs in London and the surrounding areas.
 
You can see the the full gallery of Hubble & Hattie’s #Bringyourdogtoworkday shennanigans over on our Facebook page … check it out.
 
Whilst it’s another year or so before the next #Bringyourdogtoworkday, taking your do to work every day has proven benefits. Whether it’s lowering stress and increasing productivity, or improving creativity and relationships in the work environment, there are many sound reasons to take your dog to work with you… but how do you ensure your office is fit for your four-legged friend?
 
Well, luckily for all of us working dog owners (and our bosses), those nice people over at Euroffice have created a very handy infographic that not only details the many benefits of sharing your work environment with your pooch, but – very helpfully – tells us how to make our office pet-friendly.

Just a little too late to make it into the last edition of Animal Magic, was the news that everyone’s favourite 'Lurcher with issues' turned three years old on June 15th – yes, Worzel Wooface is now hofficially a BIG boykin. He’s even pawed his very own poem to celebrate ...

Going camping? Don't forget your dog!
 
Camping with your four-legged friend has to be one of the best experiences you can share with your dog, and you'll not find a keener companion for your camping trip. 
 
There are so many things to consider before taking Fido camping with you: luckily, those cool chaps over at coolcamping.co.uk have some fantastic pointers for anyone wanting to camp with their dogs.

 
 
Cool Camping highlights the very best campsites and places to stay throughout the UK and Europe, and has a fantastic series of guides to help choose a location for your camping adventure. It's not all camping, of course… you can go glamping, stay in a B&B, or even go to a festival!
 
To get you started, we've made a handy infographic over at the Hubble & Hattie blog – the seven doggy camping essentials … click the image below to head over to the blog and check it out.
 
Of course, it's no good taking Fido camping if you don't know where you're going, and that's where We Accept Pets can help. Whilst we're focussing on dogs here, there are plenty of places that take other animals, too, from cats, and small animals, to horses, and the We Accept Pets website helps you find precisely what you're looking for … check out its Twitter and Facebook feeds for even more pet-friendly updates.
