Another east coast/west coast difference is the phenomenon of office dogs. Many companies on the west coast either allow employees to bring their (well-socialized) dogs to work or have a designated office dog. My suggestion for my workplace to participate in "Bring Your Dog to Work Day" this year was met with an awkward laugh followed by a rejection.
This is why I love working from home. Not only am I barefoot and wearing shorts, but I get to see this little face:

Is your workplace "dog-friendly"? What do you think of the office dog phenomenon?
