Wouldn’t it be great if you can bring your pet dog to the office to keep you company? Your pet will definitely put a smile on your face, especially if you are feeling stressed at work. This is probably what this street sweeper in Bangkok thought when she carried her pet dog to work.
According to 28-year-old Thitirat Keowa-ram, the street sweeper, she asked her boyfriend to get him a dog. She wants one to keep her company. Her boyfriend said yes, but he wanted to make sure that Keowa-ram will bring the pooch to work.
Someone managed to take some photos of the Bangkok street sweeper carrying her dog to work. It instantly became internet famous, especially on social media. The photos show the street sweeper doing her daily tasks. While she’s at it, she carries Mazda on a vest attached to her.

Keowa-ram said that she’s just trying to fulfill what he promised to her boyfriend. That’s why she takes the adorable Poodle-Shih Tzu with her whenever she goes to work. She also mentioned that it’s already been a year that she’s been carrying Mazda every day to work.
No wonder, Mazda looks like she’s also used to coming to work with Keowa-ram. She doesn’t even mind passersby and the traffic on the streets. It’s as if she grew up on the streets (while being carried by her owner).
Some local reports discovered that taking pets to work became a trend in Thailand. This is common, especially in firms with flexible working schedules. Companies also impose dog-friendly policies, which significantly helps ease employee’s stress and fatigue.
Hopefully, more companies will allow pets inside the workplace. This will be an excellent idea even if employers will only allow it once or twice a week.
