Plenty of pup fiction on trade’s #bringyourdogtoworkday

The book trade has been welcoming a fresh batch of interns today (23rd June) as part of #TakeYourDogToWorkDay.

Hachette imprints such as Little, Brown and Orion have been playing host to furry canines as part of the fundraising initiative, which encourages workers to bring their dogs into the office for a day.

The managing director of Little, Brown, Charlie King, was so impressed by day intern Flynn he appointed the black Labrador crime editor of the imprint, according to an announcement on Twitter.

Meanwhile group communications director Clare Harington and groups sales director Lucy Hale were trying to sway their pets Bobby and Humphrey to the  joys of the business by showing of the views from Hachette HQ’s rooftop. 

Others such as Daisy, meanwhile, tried to exhibit her proactivity by showing initiative in the Sphere editorial meeting, according to editorial assistant Jennie Rothwell.

While Poppy thought she’d stick to what she’s good at - being cute - to try and stand out.

Over at Transworld the dogs were being taught how to use the internal mailing system according to publicist Sally Wray. 

While Mabel took advantage of the temporary departure of the boss at Hay Festival to sit in the chief’s seat, reported Box Office Manager Penny Compton. 

The aim of the social media campaign, which is currently trending on Twitter and popular on Instagram, is to raise money for All Dogs Matter, a charity which finds new homes for dogs in London and Norfolk, and Animal Asia, which is committed to improving the welfare and conditions of dogs, cats and bears in China and Vietnam.
