Back in July we posted this photo on our Facebook page and shouldn’t have been surprised that it was the most “Liked” and “Shared” image to date!! Here are a few reasons why we got the reaction we did…
According to the US Humane Society there are approximately 78.2 million owned dogs in the US with 39% of US households sharing their space with at least one dog. In fact, the most recent census shows that there are now more households with pets than children in the United States.
It’s not just that many households own dogs, but that dogs are an important part of our lives. Recent national data show that 85% of dog guardians think of their dog as part of the family. But where it really gets interesting is that 94% of dog guardians feel a strong closeness to their dog. This is greater than the percent feeling close to their mothers (87%), cats (84%), and fathers (74%).
So we thought we’d combine two of our favorite things – “tile and dogs”
and share with you
how dog people have integrated clever canine design into their homes. Although I’m betting that when we’re gone, it’s still our favorite chair, sofa, or bed that our furry friends curl up on!
