Why Do Dogs Love Us And Many Other Dog Facts Plus 4 Dog Treat Recipes

The hormone oxytocin is released in humans and in dogs when we interact or have contact with someone we like. This 'love hormone' helps cement and increase the bond both humans and dogs share :)

Dogs have a sense of time and they know the difference between a hour and 5 and they get so conditioned they can predict future events, such as regular walk times. So if you come home the same time every day and even if you sneak in your house your dog is in the same spot waiting for you it's because they have the sense of time and it is not dog voodoo :)

Have you ever wondered why children around the age of 2 get along so well with dogs it's because dogs are as smart as 2-year-olds and they speak the same language, roughly 250 words and gestures :)

Dogs feel jealousy when you show affection for another creature. We've all had a dog that never liked our significant other or when we patted the cat :)

Your dog can smell your feelings. In fact, your dog’s sense of smell is approximately 100,000 times better than yours. So it shouldn’t be shocking that they can in fact, smell things such as fear. When a human is fearful, they perspire, and a dog is easily able to pick up on this change :)

Have you ever noticed when you're sitting on the couch and your dog is beside you and you're petting them and you feel calm and relaxed it's because petting a dog can actually benefit your physical and mental health. Studies have shown that petting a dog for 15 minutes can lower blood pressure by 10%, can help lower feelings of stress, depression, and combat loneliness :)

If your dog experiences separation anxiety try leaving some clothes with him that you've worn. It has been proven that the sent you leave behind on your clothes can help ease your dog's separation anxiety :)

Chocolate can be very deadly to dogs due to containing the ingredient, theobromine. Dogs cannot metabolize theobromine and ingesting chocolate could cause a severely toxic buildup in their system which could become fatal :(

If you have allergies and you want a dog get a Maltese dog because they do not shed :)

A vast majority of strays that end up in shelters are pets who are lost simply because they don't have any identification. Fourth of July is the busiest time for animal shelters as most pets get lost during that holiday due to being scared of loud fireworks and running away. My poor dog would shake and cry when the fireworks went off :(

Who Invented The Chocolate Chip Cookie And 2 Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipes

Do you have ever wonder who invented chocolate chip cookies? Well it was a chef named Ruth Graves Wakefield and she invented them in 1938 when she owned the Toll House Inn (yes the chocolate chips were named after her inn) located in Whitman, Massachusetts. The Toll House Inn was a very popular restaurant and it featured home cooking. It is often reported Ruth invented the cookies by accident hoping the chocolate would melt so she can make regular plain old chocolate cookies. In fact she invented the chocolate chip cookie by adding chocolate chips to the cookie batter. She said her restaurant was serving a thin butterscotch nut cookie with ice cream and everybody seemed to love it but she was trying to give them something different so she came up with the chocolate chip cookie recipe. All she did was add chopped up bits from Nestle's semi-sweet chocolate bar into the cookie mix. The original is called "Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookies". Miss Ruth gave Nestle the recipe for her cookies and was paid with a lifetime supply of chocolate from the company. Don't seem right does it?


Ruth Wakefield's cookbook, Toll House Tried and True Recipes published in 1936 featured the "Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookie" recipe which rapidly became a favourite cookie in American homes. During WWII, soldiers from Massachusetts who were stationed overseas shared the cookies they received in care packages from back home with soldiers from other parts of the United States. Soon hundreds of soldiers were writing home asking their families to send them some Toll House cookies. The company Maryland Cookies brought the recipe to the UK in 1956 and it became one of the UK's best selling chocolate chip cookies.

Original Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookie Recipe

INGREDIENTS
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda I
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12-ounce package) NESTLΓ‰® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped nuts

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

PAN COOKIE VARIATION: Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan. Prepare dough as above. Spread into prepared pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack. Makes 4 dozen bars.

SLICE AND BAKE COOKIE VARIATION:

PREPARE dough as above. Divide in half; wrap in waxed paper. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm. Shape each half into 15-inch log; wrap in wax paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.* Preheat oven to 375° F. Cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices; place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

~~~

Now if you're busy and you have no time to make those cookies there is an easy alternative chocolate chip cookie recipe. it's technically a food hack and it's called 'chocolate chip cookies from a cake mix'. They're not as delicious as the Toll House ones but they are good and if you're in a pinch for time hey a chocolate chip cookie is a chocolate chip cookie :-).

INGREDIENTS

1 cup chocolate chips (175 g)

Christmas Crafts, Recipes, Decor, Fun Facts And More :)

  • Rainbow Christmas Cake Wreath
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT CHRISTMAS CAKE.....A Christmas cake may be light or dark, crumbly-moist to sticky-wet, spongy to heavy, leavened or unleavened, shaped round, square or oblong as whole cakes, cupcake, or petit fours, with marzipan, icing, glazing, dusting with icing sugar, or plain. If a Christmas cake is covered in icing, it is quite common for it to be decorated - models of houses, of fir trees or of Santa Claus may be in the array of decorations. A particular favourite of many is the traditional Scottish Christmas cake, the Whisky Dundee. As the name implies, the cake originated in Dundee and is made with Scotch whisky. It is a light and crumbly cake, and light on fruit and candied peel—only currants, raisins, sultanas and cherries. This Christmas cake is particularly good for people who don't like very rich and moist cakes.

  • FUN FACTS ABOUT EYE TEST.....The world’s most common eye color is brown
    Humans can see more shades of green than any other color. Chameleons can move their eyes in two directions at once. Dolphins can sleep with one eye open
    Blue eyed people are more tolerant of alcohol, but less tolerant of the sun. Dogs cannot distinguish between red and green. Blind people can see their dreams as long as they weren’t born blind. We spend about 10% of our wake time with our eyes closed. The lifespan of an average eyelash is 5 months, while rest of your hair lasts 2-4 years. Some people have two different eye colors, a condition called heterochromia. The only organ more complex than the eye is the brain. The shark cornea is almost identical to a human cornea. 80% of all learning comes through the eyes.

  • Zucchini Pizza Bites
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT ZUCCHINI.....One zucchini is a “zucchina.” Zucchinis were first brought to the United States in the 1920s by the Italians. April 25th is National Zucchini Bread Day. The flower of the zucchini plant is edible. Fried squash blossoms are considered a delicacy. Mild bitterness in zucchini, like that in related species like cucumbers, may be result from environmental factors such as high temperature, low moisture, low soil nutrients, etc. The bitterness is caused by compounds called cucurbitacins. The world’s largest zucchini on record was 69 1/2 inches long, and weighed 65 lbs. Bernard Lavery of Plymouth Devon, UK, grew it. Nutrients and vitamins found in zucchini can help prevent cancer and heart disease. A zucchini has more potassium than a banana.

  • FUN FACTS ABOUT SOCKS.....World’s oldest socks have split toes. The oldest known pair of socks is 1,600 years old and was excavated at the end of the 19th century from the burial grounds of ancient Oxyrhynchus, a Greek colony on the Nile in central Egypt. The socks are made from red wool and have split toes for wearing with sandals. The word ‘sock’ has Roman origins. The word ‘sock’ comes from the Latin word ‘soccus’ – a loose-fitting slipper worn by Roman comic actors. Cavemen were the first to wear socks. Experts believe that the first socks were worn by cavemen, who wrapped animal skins around their feet and tied them at the ankle. Animal furs were sometimes used for extra warmth. Greek socks were made from matted animal hair. In the 8th Century BC, the Greek poet, Hesiod, wrote about piloi, which were socks made from matted animal hair. Doesn’t sound that comfortable, does it? The ancient Romans committed fashion faux pas too. Rust on a nail from a Roman sandal, found at an archaeological dig in Yorkshire, appeared to contain material fibres, suggesting that a sock-type garment had been worn. Yep that’s right – Roman legionnaires committed the ultimate modern fashion crime and wore socks with sandals.

  • Mini Deep Dish Pizza
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT PIZZA.....The biggest game of the year is upon us, which means it’s time to talk about everyone’s game day favorite, PIZZA! Those have argued that pizza deserves its own section on the food pyramid, and considering Americans eat approximately 100 acres of pizza each day, who could disagree? While pizza makes a regular appearance in Americans’ diets, it didn’t start out in the U.S.A. That’s not to say we can pinpoint the exact origin of pizza, but there is a belief that pizza actually had it’s beginnings with the Greeks before coming known as an Italian classic. Coming from the Greek word pΔ“ktos, meaning solid or clotted, pizza started out as a simple flatbread with oils, herbs, and spices. These days we can’t even imagine pizza without thick toppings on top of that identifiable red sauce. It was not until the 18th century that tomatoes made their first appearance on pizza - they weren’t discovered at the time pizza came to be. The arrival of tomatoes to the New World played a big part in the popularity of pizza today by creating that signature first layer.

  • Mermaid Christmas Stocking Crochet Pattern
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT MERMAIDS.....Some of the earliest legends of mermaids come from ancient Syria. The ancient story dates back to about 1000 B.C., a little over 3,000 years ago! In the Syrian story, a goddess named Atargatis wanted to be transformed in a fish, but when she dove into the water, only her bottom half was transformed. The resulting figure prompted our modern tales of mermaids. Mermaids weren't always thought of as the beautiful creatures that we envision today. Many times, sailors would mistake manatees for mermaids, resulting in descriptions that labeled the aquatic creatures as ugly and fat. The existence of mermaids was never questioned during medieval times. There were hundreds of accounts of mermaid sightings and they were depicted without question in historical accounts of aquatic animals, claiming their place alongside whales and other known sea creatures.

  • Driftwood Christmas Tree
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT DRIFTWOOD.....Driftwood is wood that has been washed onto the shore of a sea, river, or lake by winds, tides, waves or man. In some waterfront areas, driftwood is a major nuisance. However, the driftwood provides shelter and food for birds, fish and other aquatic species as it floats in the ocean. Gribbles, shipworms and bacteria decompose the wood and gradually turn it into nutrients that are reintroduced to the food web. Sometimes, the partially decomposed wood washes ashore, where it also shelters birds, plants, and other species. Driftwood can become the foundation for sand dunes. Driftwood can be: a tree or part of a tree that is in a large body of water because of strong winds or flooding.

Over 10 billion doughnuts are made in the U.S. each year. The American doughnut industry is huge, with numerous fast food chains dedicated to their production.

  • Charlie Brown Christmas Quote Art
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT CHARLIE BROWN.....Peanuts was first called L’il Folks.  In 1947 Charles Schultz first published his comic L’il Folks in the St. Paul Pioneer Press.  L’il Folks is where Charlie Brown first appeared, and an unnamed dog resembling Snoopy. L’il Folks began as a single-frame comic.  Schultz didn’t change the format to be a four-panel strip until two years later when he quit the St. Paul Pioneer Press. That is when he submitted the Peanuts strip to United Feature Syndicate, and they signed him. First_Peanuts_comic...The first Peanuts strip, October 2, 1950. Left to right: Charlie Brown, Shermy, and original Patty. Schultz disliked the name Peanuts.  The Syndicate already had two other similar comic names: Li’l Abner and Little Folks, so they changed the name of Schultz’s strip to Peanuts.  Schultz disliked the name Peanuts; in an interview he said about the name: “It’s totally ridiculous, has no meaning, is simply confusing, and has no dignity—and I think my humor has dignity.”  Of all the Peanuts TV specials, movies, and paperback collections of strips, that were produced while Schultz was alive, none were ever titled “Peanuts” because Schultz hated the name so much.

  • Grinch Baby Girl Outfit
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT THE GRINCH.....How the Grinch Stole Christmas is one of the most-loved Christmas movies of all time. Regardless of whether you’ve seen it or not, and whether you hate Christmas or love it, you’ll recognize the green character who always manages to make his way onto our screens over the holiday season. Here are ten things you probably didn’t know about the Grinch! The costume took a lot of dedication. It’s one of Jim Carrey’s most famous and recognizable roles, but it definitely wasn’t easy to pull off the Grinch. The costume was made predominantly from yak hairs which had been dyed green and then individually sewn onto the suit. Carrey spent a grand total of 92 days wearing the costume, and it took him three hours before each filming session to get into the suit. The Grinch didn’t originally look like that. Can you imagine the Grinch being anything other than the loveable green monster we’ve grown used to seeing on the TV every December? In the original story, the Grinch was actually black and white with bits of red and had pink eyes. When Chuck Jones became director of the animated movie, he decided that the main character was going to be entirely green.

  • Chocolate Covered Strawberry Christmas Trees
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT STRAWBERRIES.....The average strawberry has 200 seeds. A strawberry flower averages five to seven petals. Technically berries have seeds on the inside and they don’t come from a single ovary, so strawberries are really in a group all their own. Strawberries are the first fruit to ripen in the spring. Majority of the roots roots are located in the top 3 inches of soil. 94% of American households consume the berries. According to the USDA, Americans eat 3.4 lbs. of fresh strawberries a year. Americans also eat another 1.8 lbs. of frozen strawberries a year. One acre of land can grow about 50,000 pounds of strawberries. Strawberries are grown in every single U.S. state and Canadian province. California produces 75% of crops in the U.S.
    About 1 billion pounds of the berry is produced each year in California alone. In California, each acre of land produces an average of 21 tons a year. Each year, 23,000 acres are planted in California.

  • French Toast Bake
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT FRENCH TOAST.....French toast was created by medieval European cooks who needed to use every bit of food they could find to feed their families.  They knew day-old bread could be revived when moistened and heated.  They also added eggs for additional moisture and protein. Medieval recipes for French toast suggest this meal was enjoyed by the wealthy.  These recipes used white bread (the very finest, most expensive bread available at the time) with the crusts cut off—something a person of meager means would be unlikely to do. November 28th is National French Toast Day. Recipes for French toast can also be traced to Ancient Roman times. One of the original French names for this dish is le pain Γ‘ la Romaine, or Roman bread. According to the Encyclopedia of American Food and Drink, French toast does have its origins in France, where it is known as “amerite” or “pain perdu” (lost bread). The phrase “French toast” first appeared in print in the Encyclopedia of American Food and Drink in 1871. In Scotland, French toast is traditionally served with sausage between two slices of French toast, eaten as a sandwich.  It is also sometimes eaten with ketchup in Great Britain.

  • Halloween Eyeball Cookie Pops
  • FUN FACT ABOUT COOKIES.....Chocolate chip cookies were invented in the 1930s by Ruth Wakefield, who ran the Toll House Inn with her husband. Apparently, Wakefield invented the cookies while trying to improve on a butterscotch nut cookie recipe with an all-chocolate dough. The chocolate she used didn't fully melt in the dough, though, resulting in a cookie with chocolate bits. Some people are dubious of the story, however, saying that Ruth Wakefield was too much of a perfectionist to overlook such an important detail.

  • Turn A Plastic Snow Globe Into Halloween Night Lights
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT SNOW GLOBES.....A snow globe is a decorative novelty item consisting of a scene inside a transparent globular or ellipsoid-like shape.  ‘Snow globes’ are also known as ‘snow domes’, ‘snow shakers’, ‘snowstorms’, ‘snow scenes’, and ‘water globes’. Snow globes generally consist of tiny white flakes in a liquid, which is mainly water, which when shaken up, simulates snow falling. It is thought that snow globes originated in France in Europe, with the first known record being a globe of water and white powder, with a man holding an umbrella, which was on display at the Paris Universal Expo in 1878. To prevent the liquid inside a snow globe from freezing during cold temperatures, an antifreeze such as glycol, is often added to the water, while glycerine or another ingredient is sometimes added to slow the movement of the flakes in the liquid.

They may be designed to look like humans, in which case their behaviour may suggest intelligence or thought. Most robots do a specific job, and they do not look like humans. They can come in many forms. In fiction, however, robots usually look like people, and seem to have a life of their own. There are many books, movies, and video games with robots in them. Isaac Asimov's I, Robot is perhaps the most famous.

This number will far outpace recycling efforts, putting oceans, coastlines and other environments in jeopardy. We need to put our foot down now.  In Ontario alone, one billion plastic water bottles are sent to landfill every year. While Nestle estimates that 70-75% of plastic water bottles are recycled in Ontario every year, the Polaris Institute - a non-profit organization that “challenges the influence of corporations on government and public policy” - estimates only 14 percent make it to recycling facilities in the province.

There was even a coin operated restaurant in Philadelphia, “Horn & Hardart”. 1 cent Gumball machines first became popular in the United States in the early 1900’s. The machines at the time dispensed gumballs or peanuts. At around this same time vending machines were gaining popularity. In 1871 Thomas Adams patented the vending machine in the U.S. to dispense gum. In 1888 he put the vending machines on the New York City train platforms which dispensed his chicle chew stick gum. Newer vending machines have taken an old idea and made it new again by offering everything from ice cream, sandwiches, candy and pop.

  • They called him the Gentle Giant.....At 8 feet, 11.1 inches tall, Robert Wadlow was the tallest man to ever walk the Earth, at least in recorded history. Even if he was of normal stature, the people of Alton, where he grew up, would have remembered him as gentle.....He was a good human being — kind,” said Dan Brannan, an Alton journalist who wrote a book about Wadlow in 2003. “He just really handled everything with class.”.....Being tall wasn’t very easy, he pointed out, and it was hard to escape the stares and questions. Robert was born on Feb. 22, 1918. He died young, at age 22.....The people who remember him are dying off as well — Brannan interviewed dozens for his book, and many have since passed away. But the stories about him remain, as well as a life-size statue of him in Upper Alton, where he lived and went to school. The community embraced him.

  • Punk rock is a style of rock music. Many musicians and punk rock music listeners ("punk rockers") want to protest or rebel against the norms or rules of society. Punks say that people should "Do It Yourself", which means that people should try to accomplish their goals using the materials in their own communities. Many punk bands make their own music recordings and distribute them without using a major record company. The Sex Pistols.....Many punks have strong political beliefs. Punk rock musicians are often mad at the government, the police, and laws. Many punk rock songs protest injustice, lies, and unfairness in countries. Almost all punks are leftists, who believe that a country should share the products and food that it produces with all the people in the country. Some punks are vegetarian or vegans, because they believe that animals should not be killed for food. Some punks are anarchists. Very few punks are conservative, libertarian, or Republican.

  • The word "carpet" itself comes from the Latin word "carpere" which means "to pluck". This can be supported by the fact that the earliest forms of carpet were made from unraveled or "plucked" fabrics.....While some carpets are made from recycled plastic, others are created with knotted wool. This wool can sometimes be home to beetle grubs, that have chemicals in their stomachs that convert wool in sugars, causing the insect to eat through carpets and rugs like delicious candy (yum!).....Several pounds of soil and skin flakes can collect in and under your carpets each year. You can easily remove this with regular vacuuming and professional cleaning. This unique ability of carpet is actually great because it keeps allergens out of the breathing zone.....Bacteria can live longer than four weeks in carpets (and other flooring surfaces), and can transfer those germs to any food as soon as it touches - making the "five second rule" a complete myth (much to my dismay)!

  •  THERE WERE SEVEN GIRLS IN THE FIRST SEASON: BLAIR, TOOTIE, NATALIE, AND FOUR OTHERS.....Things were rather crowded at Eastland School during those first 13 episodes, with Felice Schachter, Julie Anne Haddock, Julie Piekarski, and Molly Ringwald (yes, that one) in the mix with the others. A couple of school administrators were regular characters as well. Predictably, it soon became apparent that there wasn’t enough for all of those characters to do, and the show’s ratings were lousy. For the second season, producers stripped it down to the elements that were working best, dumped everyone else, and brought in Nancy McKeon as tomboy, blue-collar Jo.
