Whenever Anyone Says Dogs Don’t Think–Show Them This

 

Of course, the web is rife with made-up stuff, so when Cait first sent me this (after I said, “awwww”) I immediately went to track it down to see if it was real.

And it is. They even have a video.

143rd Westminster Dog Show – Feb. 11

*The Westminster Dog Show returns to New York City for the 143rd time on Monday (Feb. 11), when 2,800 canines will compete for the coveted Best in Show title. This year’s show runs from 8am ET to 11pm ET on Feb. 11 and 12 and is available to stream online.

Two new dog breeds, the Nederlandse kooikerhondje (which is cool because for the longest time I though Graidy might have been a kooikerjondje) and the grand basset griffon Vendéen, are making their Westminster debuts this year.

And there’s one woman who has come to our house to sit–who is fabulous–but you have to book her months in advance. We never know what we’re doing next week, nevermind months in advance.  All of this has meant that Andrew and I […]

2018 Top 10 Most Dangerous Dog Breeds

Having just talked to a shaken friend who recently got bitten by a Dachshund, it made me wonder who the bad boys are in the bite world now. As I came across this info, it doesn’t look like much has changed in the last 20 years.

In the mid-1990s The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted its first study into the dog breeds involved in deadly U.S. attacks between 1979 and 1996. During that time, the Pit Bull was involved in 60 fatal attacks, the Rottweiler was recorded in 29 and the German Shepherd was in 19.
