"Pet Owners Independence Day” Gives Photographer a Great Idea



Pet Owners Independence Day is the one day a year when pet owners get to turn the tables on their fluffy friends. The tongue-in-cheek idea is to send the pets off to work, while letting the owners stay home and sleep, eat, play, or do anything they’d rather do than work. One pet owner who decided to capitalize on the day was 63-year-old Linda Kush, whose three canines got their paws dirty while cleaning their house in Missouri. Linda, who is a photographer by trade, decided to make the most of the photo op and snap a few hilarious photos of her dogs — Reka, Roxie and Riley — while they posed in various cleaning positions. From vacuuming to cleaning the toilet, there’s no end to their canine talents.
