Dogs at Work
Journalists use Sources all the time when they're
working on their stories, and while normally it's the organizations
listed in Sources who get quoted in the media, from
time to time Sources itself gets media exposure in
its own right.
One recent instance was a story in the Toronto Star: "Dogs
make workplace more human" (June 15, 2000). The story, by Working
Life columnist Judith Timson, says that "taking your dog to work
is a happening thing, at least in some businesses. Creative types
are doing it, employees at small businesses are doing it, even instructors
at local colleges and universities do it."
The story quotes Kirsten Cowan, Circulation and Promotions Manager
at Sources, whose 100-pound Newfoundland dog Tova
regularly makes the commute to the Sources office.
Kirsten is quoted as saying that Tova's presence is a "highly pleasurable"
feature of the office ambience.
who was asleep when the reporter called, is not quoted in the story.
