Yappy Hour Extravaganza!!!
August 15, 2009 5pm-7pm
Our July Yappy Hour had a great turnout and we want to let all those who attended know that we were very impressed by your knowledge during our trivia game! While the trainers do admit that some of the questions were difficult (if not impossible for us who do not have their extensive backgrounds in animal behavior...) they do appreciate that eveyone tried and hopefully learned something new.
Some of our favorite trivias included:
The most popular breed of dog in the LA area is the Chihuahua with appx 59,684 registered dogs. The Lab second with 58,071 registered dogs.
The most popular name for dogs in the LA area is Lucky with 6,502 registered dogs.
A Ragdoll is the largest breed of domestic cat.
The polar bear has transparent colored fur.
The first working dog in the entertainment industry was from the Ringling Bros., Barnum, and Bailey Circus.
The annual sales of pet food is four times that of baby food!
Cats overtook dogs as the most popular pet in America in 1987 and they currently out number dogs by appx 8 million with 37% of American homes owning a cat.
Hopefully everyone will be able to join us at the next Yappy Hour Extravaganza on Saturday, August 15, 2009 from 5pm - 7pm. We are sure that this one will be even better then the last (if possible of course)!
