Local Office Gone to the Dogs

Employees at American Medical Staffing in Tyler took advantage of "Take Your Dog to Work Day" today.

Workplace activities that may seem mundane to us are downright fascinating to our pets. Or at least they played along like they were fascinated.

But the real benefit seemed to work in favor of the employees.

"It's just almost like having a party in here or something," says Karen Perry of American Medical Staffing. "It's a festive feeling in the office. Maybe a little bit of a distraction but a fun distraction. It's not like we're not getting our work done. But yeah, it has definitely made a fun feel to the day."
