Keeping the content light again this week as I'm still on vacation.

That said, it's international dog day this Friday 26 August. Let me know in the comments what you'll be getting up to with your pooch.

See you next week.

Dogs Can Cry When You Return Home

A team of Japanese researchers have discovered dogs can shed tears when reunited with their owners after just 5 hours of separation. But we already knew that, right?

International Dog Day

According to National Dog Day, dogs have been by our side for at least 14,000 years. And to celebrate the many years together, we (humans) created the yearly international dog day. Which is just another excuse to splurge out on your doggo – without the guilt.
