Just a few dog-related links for you this week! Some thoughtful pieces, though.
America’s Pet Frenzy. An entertaining and informative infographic that presents a thoughtful look at how much we spend on our pets. The numbers are pretty insane. Americans spent $48.3 billion on pets last year! Most interesting to me: Only 15% of Americans get pets from shelters. If 100% did, they’d save $2.4 billion. (Frugal Dad)
Dogs & Frostbite: Everything You Need to Know. If you live in a very cold area, this is a great article about how to prevent and treat frostbite in your dogs. (The Hydrant)
Blogger’s Stakes, Or How I Blew My First Competition. Veterinarian Dr. V. participates as a handler in her first dog show. A fun and really enjoyable post. (Pawcurious)
Dog Painting. No, I totally want this book, too! It would be the best coffee table book. (Ulicam)
