Celebrating Man's Best Friend, From Depressed Dogs to Pugs as People

— July 28, 2009 — Lifestyle
Man’s best friend is not his trusty LA-Z-Boy, or beer, or even his massive HDTV. Man’s best friend is his dog. We never really recognize the true camaraderie that our canine companions provide to us until we desperately need it.

As dogs have been there for us, we have been there for them, with many awesome innovations to improve the lives of our four-legged friends. I hereby present 90 canine innovations, from sunglasses for dogs to doggy wigs.
