This article in the Christian Science Monitor calls it the Dog Revolution-a change in the way Americans looks at their dogs. We are no longer just pets, but family members. From doggie daycare, to pet airways, to organic food, to pet physical therapy, the industry is booming. So I guess means dogs are doing their part to stimulate the economy! Do check out the whole article, which gives an interesting history of the economy of dogs.
Wags to my friend Shep in Virginia for the great tip!!
