Today in Company Memos

We just got word Friday, April 6th is BRING YOUR DOG TO WORK DAY. Friday, April 6th is sure to be a historical day in nwktumblr’s life so please help us brainstorm ideas for what we should do to cover this monumental event. Should we just run around taking pictures of dogs? Should we “profile” them? Should we just bring a lot of treats and steal them one by one and hide in a conference room and just have our own ‘nwktumblr steals your dog at work day’? Give us ideas! We’ll do them. Don’t you think we won’t.

ON THIS DATE IN 1957: LAIKA LAUNCHED INTO ORBIT ON SPUTNIK II

A Dog’s Life
The first living creature to become a resident of outer space is  strapped on her back in a tiny pressurized and heated cabin.  The Husky  in the now-dubbed “Muttnik” is covered with electrodes measuring blood  pressure, heartbeat, and body temperature.  She may be able to bark or  whine into a miniature microphone and probably is being nourished  intravenously by glucose.  Why a dog?  three reasons: (1) A dog does not  perspire and so can be more readily confined in a limited-air cubicle,  (2) a dog can register measurable emotions, and (3) a dog can be  conditioned and trained to undergo severe physical trials.”

There’s a really hack joke about friends and Washington we just made around the office, but we’ll pretend that we never said it.
