There’s A New Way To Figure Out Your Dog’s Age In Human Years

For as much as we know about dogs, there are still some things that are being discovered. One of the mysteries that we’re always trying to crack is to understand exactly how our dogs’ aging works – particularly when it comes to calculating their real age in human years. While there are some that say you take your dog’s age and then multiply it by seven to get their human years, that might now always be the way to do it.

Why Does My Dog Chew My Shoes?

The age-old belief is that dogs like stinky feet. It can only seem like the logical explanation for why our dogs seem to be obsessed with our shoes. They sniff them, they’ll sometimes roll around on them, and occasionally, they’ll chew on them. I remember my dog would always insist on stuffing her nose into every single one of our shoes whenever we’d get home and take them off. It’s an interest in our shoes that all our dogs seem to share, and it’s definitely something odd to witness. Most annoying is when our dogs try to turn our shoes

Family Puts Up A Sign For Neighbors That Are Concerned About Their Dog On The Roof

Dogs aren’t really known for hanging out strange places. That is more a cat’s game. Cats are the ones that end up gracing the internet because of the odd places they choose to chill in. Shelving units, hand railings, tops of cars, inside boxes that are too small, plant pots – all these areas have not been off-limits to cats looking to take a nap.  Chilling in weird locations is kind of a cat’s thing. But our dogs? We’d expect more normality from them. Dogs are known for more silly antics like chasing their tails or rolling around on the

Dog Turns Off The Lights And Tucks Himself Into Bed When His Owner Leaves

We all get curious as to what our pets do when we’re not around. It’s human nature. There was even an animated movie made about what our animals get up while we’re hard at work. Of course, it’s quite doubtful that our pets get up to any sort of high-stakes crime-fighting while we’re not home, but we still want to know what they do. Sometimes we get a glimpse of what activities they end up filling their days with – and it’s usually when they’ve done something bad. We’ve all come home to accidents on the carpet, broken items, chewed
