Get ready for “pawternity leave.” Now it’s not happening HERE in the US, but it IS happening in Brisbane Australia.  The “pawternity leave” scheme is available to staff at BrewDog’s Brisbane brewery, which opened late November.  According to a company spokesperson, “Basically it’s an extra paid week of leave that you’re able to take when you adopt a puppy or get a new puppy in the house.”
