For KLG and Hoda, any day is Take Your Dog to Work Day

Video: TODAY’s Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb bring their pups Blake and Bambino to visit the Fourth Hour, where Hoda shows off Blake’s new tricks. The ladies also discuss Paula Deen’s book publisher dropping the cook.

Take Your Dog to Work Day was officially June 21, but Kathie Lee and Hoda celebrated the dog days of summer by bringing their pet pooches to work on Monday.

KLG brought her Maltipoo, Bambino, while Hoda held Blake, the Cockapoo she adopted earlier this year, in her lap.

“They’re meeting for the very first time today," KLG noted of the pair of pooches. "And they like each other so far."

But she spoke a little too soon, apparently. Bambino later growled several times at Blake when he got a little too close. (Or maybe Bambino was just jealous over Blake’s attempt to be a hog the camera.)

Earlier, Hoda attempted to show off the new tricks Blake had learned. She got the pup to sit and then lie down, but Blake apparently wasn’t feeling up to rolling over on command for the camera.

Still, it was enough to impress KLG.

“That’s two more Bambino can do,” she said. “Bambino can do eat and sleep. Those two he’s very good at.”
