A Bangkok street sweeper, Thitirat Keowa-ram, has created a phenomenon after a picture of her carrying her dog on her back while sweeping the streets went viral on the internet. Mazda, the one-year-old poodle-shih tzu mix breed, weighing almost 10 kilograms, seems to enjoy being on Thitirat's back as she works. The 'bring-your-dog-to-work' trend has been growing in Thailand for the past years. Many companies have encouraged employees to do so as some say it can help alleviate stress.
