just for fun - Today is National Dog Photography Day!

If you have a dog in your family, then today is just the day to take photos of them as it is National Dog Photography Day! You are able to learn about this day at the following link - but I thought I'd also share a few fun facts about dogs from AKC with you . . .

  • Dogs are like children and are as smart as two year olds, typically they have the vocabulary of a two-year old - which is why they are able to understand what you say to them.
  • Dogs are able to accept and give love.
  • A dog’s nose print is unique, much like a person’s fingerprint.
  • Forty-five percent of U.S. dogs sleep in their owner’s bed.
  • Yawning is contagious—even for dogs. Research shows that the sound of a human yawn can trigger one from your dog. And it’s four times as likely to happen when it’s the yawn of a person he knows.
  • The Basenji is not technically “barkless,” as many people think. They can yodel.
  • Human blood pressure goes down when petting a dog. And so does the dog’s.
  • There are over 75 million pet dogs in the U.S.—more than in any other country.
  • Dogs are not colorblind. They can see blue and yellow.
  • The Bloodhound’s sense of smell is so accurate that the results of its tracking can be used as evidence in a court of law.
You will find more fun facts about dogs at this link.

So, since today is National Dog Photography Day, take a photo, or two, of your dogs - the dogs in the photo on this blog post are my "grand-dogs" - Rosie the Basset and Gimli and Roxi the Bulls! They are all very sweet and wonderful family members for sure!
