Work Like a Dog Day

August 5 is Work Like a Dog Day, a day to work hard and to reward people who work day and night and are very productive.


The unofficial holiday celebrates the English language phrase, working like a dog, meaning to work very hard. It is believed that the idiom comes from the hard work that working dogs - herd dogs, hunting dogs, rescue, and service dogs - put in during the day.

How to Celebrate?

  • Work hard. Put in extra hours at work, and who knows, you may be able to get in your boss’s good books.
  • Do you know someone who is a workaholic? Spend the day honoring the hard work they do and celebrate their contribution to the workplace and society by doing something nice for them.
  • Or, since most pet dogs don’t work much and prefer spending time lazing around, you could be a contrarian and celebrate Work Like a Dog Day by not doing any work at all!

Did You Know...

A man came through my lane at the grocery store with a jug of wine and a bouquet of roses. But before paying, he set the two items aside and said, “I’ll be right back.”

He ran off, only to ­return a minute later with a second jug of wine and another bouquet of roses. “Two girlfriends?” I asked.

“No,” he said. “Just one really angry one.
