My weekend was dog-filled! My Dad’s Veterinary Hospital (Hospital Veterinário do Porto) was the official veterinary support for this big event in Porto. As a big animal lover, I couldn’t miss the chance to accompany him and experience the backstage of the show, and get to see all the beautiful dogs! Here are a few photos from the event this weekend, in particular of the variety of breeds on show. The ‘Best Dog in Show’ was won by a Portuguese Water Dog.
I’m extremely lucky to have my amazing Dad as a vet. I grew up in his clinic and surrounded by animals, always with great love and respect for an animal’s life. I believe this has been a really positive influence in my life, which I also see reflected in the sport I practice since I was 8, horse riding, which is of course, all about you and the horse.
People are setting up Facebook and Twitter accounts for their dogs too, and also Flickr accounts.
Lab 42 conducted a survey, taking place online via social networks between February 28 and March 2, 2011 among 407 adults with even distribution across age groups and income levels, aiming to find out the relationship between Facebook, dogs, and those who love them. And this amazing infographic was made!
