Reasons Why Life with Dogs is Best: Fun Edition

Dogs inspire team spirit!

In need of a mascot?

A stray dog wandered into the Milwaukee Brewers spring training camp in Phoenix, Arizona. Staff membersdecided to post photos of the canine in an attempt to reunite him with his owner. Unfortunately, no one claimed the dog. Hank was taken to the vet where he received his shots and a bath.

He even got to spend a day at the Team Store where he received plenty of team gear and got his very own team jersey, dog-sized jersey, of course. He now spends most the day roaming the offices and playing fields, greeting players and staff.

Dogs make commercials so much more watchable!

We’ll watch a commercial 1,000 times over if there’s a dog in it!

Budweiser’s Super Bowl XLVIII commercial “Puppy Love” demonstrates how even a little puppy and a gigantic Clydesdale can strike up a lasting friendship. It features what looks to be a Golden Lab puppy that befriends a Clydesdale horse stalled at a ranch next door. It earned Anheuser-Busch the “winner” title in USA TODAY's consumer-judjed Ad Meter for super Bowl commercials

Dogs keep us humble.

There is nothing like a dog to let you know who’s really boss.

Whether you’re standing at the wrong end of the leash waiting for your dog to find the perfect spot to relive himself, or wondering why he finds the neighbor’s zinnias so much more interesting than your call of “Come Here!” chances are you’d do anything for that guy. There is no one like a dog to keep our heads firmly grounded in reality.

Dogs may have an inner compass.

Researchers in Germany discovered that dogs may have an built-in sense of direction.

German and Czech researchers studying squatting dogs doing their business have found the pooches have an "inner compass" that may help explain how they find their way home over great distances. When the four-legged friends stop during a walk to defecate or urinate, they tend to do so along a north-south axis, provided the earth's magnetic field is stable at the time, the scientists said Friday. There was no notable difference in magneto-sensitivity among breeds, which ranged from a tiny Yorkshire Terrier to a large St Bernard, said team member Dr Sabine Begall of Germany's Duisburg-Essen University. The findings are another clue that animals can sense electromagnetic waves not noticed by humans, and that dogs, aside from their sharp senses of hearing and smell, also have a "magnetic sense".

Pups inspire us to be do-gooders.

We’re inspired by the selflessness of animals.

Online donations have risen to more than $100,000 to help a New York blind man keep the guide dog who helped rescue him from a potentially fatal subway fall a week before Christmas. Cecil Williams, 61, who suffers from diabetes, fainted on Tuesday while waiting for the train. His 10-year-old dog Orlando tried to tug him away from toppling off the platform. The two hurtled onto the tracks and were partially run over by an oncoming train but incredibly escaped with minor injuries. The story instantly captured the imagination of New Yorkers. When it emerged that Williams could no longer afford to keep Orlando after his guide dog retires next year, donations poured in.

Even when they do something wrong, it's usually funny.

A Montana man is sure glad he got his $500 back.

The United States federal government may have been shut down, but they fulfilled one budgetary requestbefore heading out the door. They sent a Montana man a $500 reimbursement for the money his dog ate last winter.

They remind us that good things come in small packages.

At 3.8 inches tall, Miracle Milly may be small – but she’s still awesome.

Miracle Milly, a 3.8 inch tall, one pound Chihuahua living in Puerto Rico, is officially the World’s Smallest Dog measured in height, according to Guinness World Records. Imagine having a dog as small as an athletic shoe. The nearly two-year-old dog may not be as big as a ham, but she knows how to act like one, according to her dog mom, Vanesa Semler, who lives in Dorado, Puerto Rico. Milly will stick her tongue out anytime someone points a camera at her. "She knows how to pose," Semler told the Associated Press, as reported by NBC News.

We care about them more than any worldly possession.

Cars are great, but dogs are a human’s best friend.

You don’t want to mess with a guy’s dog. That’s the message one man in Springfield, MO wanted to give to the man and woman who stole his 2009 Nissan Pathfinder on Thursday, with his Pug, named Dugout, still inside. The post Doug Clark made on Facebook asking for the return of his dog in exchange for the title to the vehicle went viral, with more than 77,000 shares and 36,000 likes as of this writing.

Dogs provide a mirror of ourselves.

If you’re tired, your dog will probably let you know.

Tired dog lovers who think their pet pooch is yawning right along with them may just be right, according to a Japanese study. Dubbed "contagious yawning", the new research says man's best friend can sense human fatigue and, in a possible show of empathy, will join humans in a big yawn. Canines yawn more often when it's their owner who's involved, added the study conducted by researchers at Tokyo and Kyoto universities, which was published in U.S. science journal PLOS One this week. "Our study suggests that contagious yawning in dogs is emotionally connected in a way similar to humans," said Teresa Romero of the University of Tokyo who led the study.

Pups teach us that confidence is key.

One pup’s bus ride inspires us to take part in the world around us.

Fare-beaters in New York typically are removed from city buses and sometimes picked up by the police. One canine rider who snuck onto a city bus in Staten Island, NY last week found that out for herself. But even a Pit Bull mix boarding a bus alone could not faze early morning passengers around 7 a.m. last Monday at the Deppe Place stop. Like she was just any commuter, the pooch made her way down the aisle and eventually settled in the back row of seats.

Our pups might be able to predict earthquakes.

In China, dogs are helping predict when earthquakes will occur.

A Chinese city is using dogs to predict earthquakes, an official said Tuesday, after state-run media reported that neighbors were complaining of nightly false alarms -- in the form of barking. The earthquake authority of Nanchang, the capital of Jiangxi province in the east, keeps dogs since they will "act abnormally when an earthquake is coming,” sometimes up to 10 days in advance.

A dog's cooperation is worth at least $330 million.

That’s how much Americans spent on pet Halloween costumes last year. 

Nearly fourteen percent of pet parents dress up their four-legged companions, with an estimated $330 million spent on finding just the right costume last year. This number has jumped an astonishing 65% since 2010. While we’re devoted to finding the right costume, some dogs are just as devoted to tolerating them. That’s true friendship.
