A Quarter of Pet Owners Have Lied to Their Boss About a Sick Pet
When you call in sick or show up late too many times, you can't keep using the same excuse. And blaming it on our pets is a popular strategy...
A new survey found just under a quarter of pet owners have lied to their boss about a sick pet before.

Here are four more quick stats from the survey . . .
- 39% of pet owners have taken a day off, and 27% have worked from home because of a sick pet.
