Fam­ily leave OK’d for dog

New York Post - - NEWS -

An Ital­ian li­brar­ian won the right to use fam­ily sick leave to care for her dog.

Ital­ian an­i­mal-ad­vo­cacy group LAV helped per­suade pub­lic La Sapienza Univer­sity that the 12-year-old English set­ter, Cuc­ci­ola, was the li­brar­ian’s fam­ily — and to let her use two days’ fam­ily sick leave.

LAV Pres­i­dent Gian­luca Felicetti said any­one who ob­tains a let­ter of proof from a vet­eri­nar­ian should en­joy the same ben­e­fit.

Cuc­ci­ola’s owner said the pooch is re­cov­er­ing well from surgery for a breast tu­mor.
