Your Weekend Reading

New Math for Old (and Young) Dogs. Calculating your dog’s age in human years isn't as easy as multiplying it by 7, just look how quickly dogs age in their first two years of life. Researchers at UC San Diego are well aware and have created a more accurate formula. They analyzed the genomes of 104 Labrador retrievers between the ages of 4 weeks and 16 years and found similarities in comparing the “DNA methylation” in dogs and people. Dig into the science behind the study and calculate your dog's human age. Note the formula does not take into account that dog breeds age at different rates.(Smithsonian).
Thanksgiving Safety Tips. Thanksgiving may very well be your dog’s favorite holiday – it’s all about family and food! Read the AVMA’s comprehensive list of tips to keep your dog safe this Thanksgiving. You’ll find reminders about holiday foods unsafe for dogs, tips for hosting and welcoming guests in your home, and advice for traveling with your dog. One Thanksgiving tip we were reminded about – dog-proof your kitchen trash! Keep your dog’s super sniffer from scavenging items like food scraps, bones, packaging, and string (AVMA).
Best in Show. Thanksgiving Day is full of traditions – family, football, parades, and dogs! Yes, dogs. Tune into the 2019 National Dog Show airing after the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and you'll see many of the 2000+ dogs representing 195 breeds compete. The show, founded in 1879 and held annually since 1933, is a great way to catch the breeds you don’t see every day. Since the competition was held last week at The Kennel Club of Philadelphia, you can get a sneak peek at some of the adorable contenders. The show airs Thursday from 12 noon to 2 pm in all time zones. (NBC Sports).
What Else We're Reading: 
  • Friday Fun. To send a message of support to local dog shelters and rescues, a couple's bridal party carried puppies down the wedding aisle. And don’t miss the look of love in this dog's eyes on adoption day. 
  • No Hair, No Problem. See hairless dogs in a new way when you learn they’re the pup of choice in Peru, a symbol of national pride. The dogs are even celebrated once a year on June 12th, Hairless Peruvian Dog Day! Aside from being easier to care for than our furry friends (no shedding, fleas nor fur to groom), their hairless bodies apparently radiate heat and keep their owners warm and toasty (WSJ)
  • Unicorn x Puppy. Meet Narwhal, the appropriately-named puppy with a second tail growing out of his forehead. The tail doesn't wag nor slow him down, and he's adorable (CNN).
