It's National Treasure Your Dog Day!

Today is National Treasure Your Dog Day . . . well, technically it is National Spoil Your Dog Day, but we throw things away which are spoilt and we would never throw our dear canine family members away, so I prefer to call it, National Treasure Your Dog Day! The dogs in the photo are my "grand" dogs - Rosie the basset and Gimli and Roxi - all much loved for sure!

So, as we think about treasuring the canines in our family on this day, let's first look at some fun dog facts, did you know . . . 

  • Just as with cats, 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 beds.
  • Seventy percent of people sign their dog’s name on their holiday cards.
  • Human blood pressure goes down when petting a dog. And so does the dog’s.
  • Dogs are not color-blind. They can see blue and yellow.
  • A study shows that dogs are among a small group of animals who show voluntary unselfish kindness towards others without any reward.
You will find more fun facts about dogs at this link.

So, on this day to treasure the canine in your family, of course give them a special treat, but the thing they will likely love the most, is attention and kind words . . . which should be a big part of every day as canine family members should be treasured for sure!
