Bet you can’t read this post without yawning…

It’s that time of the week! Wacky Wednesday is here. This week we’re celebrating with the lovely Afghan hound Reine.

Seeing someone else yawn, it may be impossible to resist the urge to yawn yourself. Even reading about yawning can cause the impulse to be irresistible. Here are some fun facts about yawning:

  • Almost all creatures on the planet yawn, including snakes, fish, and dogs!
  • The purpose of yawning is to cool brain temperature and actually keep you awake.
  • Contagious yawning is an ancient ritual that evolve to help groups stay alert to detect any threats and danger.
  • Dogs yawn to stay calm in certain situations.

Hopefully this post makes you yawn, and helps you stay awake on this wacky Wednesday!

Thanks to Diane Bauman for the beautiful Reine starting this chain reaction!

Love Ya Like a Sister

A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves – a special kind of double.  ~Toni Morrison

Not only do human sisters share a special bond, but animal sisters do too! Sisters don’t always have to agree on things. They don’t have to get along all the time. And many times sisters look nothing alike! However, that doesn’t change the type of friendship that sisterhood brings. As they bond sitting side by side, you can see these Afghan Hound sisters Aquina and Tish have very different looks. Although they are unique in appearance, they are both beautiful.

These Afghan hound sisters belong to our friend Diane Bauman.

Happy Friday. :]

Afghan Hounds Are Smarter Than You Think!

According to Stanley Coren’s The Intelligence of Dogs, the Afghan Hound is the least intelligent dog of the 110 breeds that were ranked. Sorry Mr. Coren, we (and these adorable Afghan puppies) beg to differ.

These precious Afghan Hound puppies are merely 8 weeks old. They are already being trained by their co-owner, world-renowned trainer Diane Bauman and learning fast! Despite where Stanley Coren
ranks Afghan’s in his intelligence scale, you can see for yourself how smart these dogs really are.

Our friend Diane Bauman is now looking for performance homes for some of these pups. They’re far too smart to just sit there and look pretty!
Let us know if you are interested and we can lead you in the right direction.

Humidity

It’s official.  Summer is pouring in around us with bright sunshine and heavy clouds of humidity.

Yes, there are the fabulous breezes that give you hope that the incredibly beautiful sunny day won’t kill you.

And yes, its officially time for shorts and tans which both reveal and hide our winters transparency!

And yes! We become more and more aware that our hairstyles probably won’t last until the end of the day…unless you happen to be an Afghan Hound, Reine, who looks gorgeous regardless of the time of year!

Happy Summer!
