Hi everyone,

Did you know.....

Border Collies have a space between the tops of their shoulder blades, which helps them in herding. This adaptation is what allows them to move in their swift, cat-like crouch and gives them greater precision when herding. Not that I'm biased but us Border Collies really are THE best herders!

Hi everyone,

Did you know.....

In Iran, it's actually illegal to own dogs unless you are able to prove that it is a guard dog or a hunting dog! I don't think I'll be holidaying there, I mean the cheek of it!

Hi everyone,

Did you know.....

In 1925, a small town in Alaska suffered an outbreak of diphtheria and twenty mushers and their sled dogs transported the anti-toxins 674 miles back to the town, in a 127.5 hour long mission.

Hi everyone,

So it's time for my fact of the month again and this one is more than a little strange!

Did you know....

In Paulding, Ohio police officers are allowed by law to bite a dog in order to get it to be quiet! I wouldn't stand for that, let me tell you.

Hi everyone,

Now usually I start off my fact of the month with did you know..... but this time I'm not going to because one of the facts I'm going to give you should come as no surprise. It certainly wasn't for me....

Border Collies are the worlds smartest breed of dog (obviously....not that I'm biased!) but I bet you didn't know that the second smartest breed of dog is the Poodle.

Onto the not so smart breeds, I hate to break it to all you Afghan Hounds out there but you guys on the list of not so intelligent dog breeds, along with Mastiffs.

Bye for now
