We love dogs. Just about all of us do. Big dogs, small dogs, yappy dogs, fluffy dogs, all of them are loveable dogs — we call them pups and puppers, woofers and boofers, pupperinos and cutie-booties, and we adore our closest companions like no other.
If you were to ask a dog owner why they love their dogs so much, they’d probably tell you that they have a close and enduring bond with their dogs, they care about them on a deep level, and know their dogs care about them in return, offering company, love, and an undeniable loyalty. Recent studies have also shown that CBD oil for dogs is particularly beneficial for their health so look for cbd for dogs discount online.
The United States population is around 328.2 million people. Nearly 4.7 million people are bitten by dogs every year, which means if you’re in the United States, you have a 1 in 70 chance of getting bitten by a dog, if this happens to you or your dog does something similar, you better get in touch with a law firm that specializes in dog bites.
Contrary to popular belief, dogs didn’t actually evolve from wolves quite like we think they did, but rather, evolved along with wolves, though they are both the descendents of an ancient species now-extinct known as “Canis,” the Latin word for dog, and both dogs and wolves have been our friends, looking out for us since about the time we first evolved. Dogs are a class of animals, along with their ancestral Canis, of the class of animals known as “Caniformia,” which is Latin for “dog-like,” and other members of this classification share the dog-like traits, including raccoons, bears, foxes, skunks, and even walruses, and a quick glance at the snout of any of these animals will tell us, not only that they’re all cute, but that they’re all related.
