    Pet Facts & Stats You Didn’t Know

    Since time immemorial have humans and animals walked side by side, sometimes for mutual benefit, sometimes for the simple and most basic of reasons—companionship. It is the latter that seems to be the prevalent attitude nowadays. Yet, there is more behind simply sharing one’s life with, as is mostly the case, four-legged fluffs of furry joy, cats and dogs.

    6 Benefits of Obedience Training for Dogs

    Dogs are a very social animal, so it’s not surprising to see that the relationship with man grew stronger over the years. The closeness with a higher being like man means they look up to us for guidance, and learn what is expected of them in any situation. The onus is on us, to properly educate them on the right way to behave in society. Dog training courses and socialization training experts advise that the earlier you train your dog, the better and more willing they are to respond.

    11 Most Hilarious Animal Fails

    11 Most Hilarious Animal Fails

    When it comes to life, things can get serious and stressful. That is why I find it imperative to laugh as much as possible on a daily basis! Despite finding myself hilarious, as well as my two children and husband never disappointing in the humor department, there is nothing quite as funny as a coordination mishap or non-injuring life fail! My kids couldn't agree more, which is why we play, "Try not to laugh" ALL. THE. TIME. Included in this game is watching tons and tons of videos of both people and animal fails; and honestly, we would agree in saying that hilarious animal moments and funny pet fails are by and far the most entertaining!

    11 Most Well Paid Animal Actors In History

    11 Most Well Paid Animal Actors In History

    Don’t we all wish that we were the owners of well paid animal actors? It turns out that some animals make a lot more than humans; and believe it or not, some of them are millionaires! However, being a highly paid animal actor isn’t as easy as it sounds. With millions of other animals up against them, the chances of being one of the top paid is pretty slim. It takes a lot of hard work and training for these animals to be considered before they are cast as a role in a movie, and this starring role in movies is reserved for only the best of the best animals. With that being said, some catch the break they deserve, and wind up making their owners rich in the process.

Currently in my household, I have two husky puppies (both four months old) and a year old husky and think the same thing... these are the cutest dogs ever.
