It’s National Dog Day! Celebrate by making your very good boy or girl a king or a queen!

I mean, maybe slightly more than you already do.

Some stats for National Dog Day courtesy of National Today:

  • 71 percent of Americans have had a dog at some point in our lives.
  • Americans are twice as likely to describe themselves as a “dog person” than a “cat person.”
  • The most likely dog to misbehave is the greyhound.
  • 86 percent of dog owners tell their dog “I love you” at least once a month. (Ed. Note: That seems low. Both in the number of people saying it and the number of times it’s said.)

We’re just also going to leave this here.
