Happy National Pet Day from the Chonga's!

Happy National Pet Day! Did you know 68% of American households have a pet?

The Top 5 Pets We Have:

#5 Birds

#4 Small Critters like Rabbits, Hamsters, Guinea Pigs and such

#3 Dogs (I thought they'd be #1!)

#2 Cats (and that leaves something else on top?!)

The #1 pet in American households is....Freshwater Fish!

A few other tidbits about pets you may or may not know:

  • A dog’s nose has about four-times as many scent cells as a cat’s and 14 times more than a human’s. That’s why dogs are often used to track down illegal drugs and missing persons. They can sniff out their dinner from any room in the house!
  • It’s estimated that one-million dogs in the United States have been named as the primary beneficiary in their owner's will.
  • A cat will almost never meow at another cat. Cats use this sound for humans.
  • A 15-year-old cat has probably spent about ten years of its life sleeping.
  • Dogs can donate blood to other dogs and cats can donate blood to other cats.
  • Studies have shown that people who own pets live longer, have less stress, and have fewer heart attacks.
  • Over 50% of all pet owners would rather be stranded on a desert island with their pet, not another person.

Lastly, here's a pic of the sleeping Chonga pets, Sophie Puppy and Bobbi McFeline...
