    Get a Dog

    dogs are good for your career

    What do GM CEO Mary Barra, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg and on-screen celebrities like Lena Waithe and Lena Dunham have in common? They all say everyone should have a dog. As lifelong canine fans, we agree, but were frankly surprised at what we read here.“These are women with insanely busy schedules, tremendous responsibilities, husbands, wives, partners, and children to care for. They’ve started their own companies and risen to the top of their fields. They’re women who, it seems, have approximately zero time to walk, feed, or clean up after a dog. And yet, they do. In fact, many of them quite literally attribute their success—and sanity—in large part to their dogs’ companionship.”

    Or as our friend Jane Weiden told us, “Dogs are one of the best things about being alive.” They also seem to be a great thing for one’s career.
