Today is International Dog Day


On August 26, the International Day of Man’s Best Friend is celebrated.

Today we commemorate our four-legged friends. They wag their tails, jump, and bark when we come to our houses to show us their love.

Dogs have accompanied humanity for more than 30,000 years. They have helped us hunt, control pests, protected us, and been loyal.

Today around 800 different breeds with different sizes and physiognomies are known. Although they do not have a great sense of sight, they have very good hearing and a highly developed sense of smell, this is the tool that defines their best qualities as a hunter or tracker, but also their ability to socialize by recognizing familiar smells.

As much as we would like them to live a lifetime, the life expectancy of our friends is between 12 and 15 years, but there are some who can reach 20 years.

International Dog Day occurs in the context of the first trial in Mexico for animal abuse. A man accused of poisoning rescue dogs Athos and Tango has been found guilty and could face up to 18 years in prison. This is the first trial for such acts that reach a sentence in the country and could set a precedent for Mexico.
