Surveying eyes!

Dogs were domesticated about 15,000 years ago and they perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, pulling loads, protection, companionship, and aiding handicapped individuals. Most urban dogs are companions. Research increasingly indicates that the companionship of a dog enhances human physical health and psychological well-being. *

Dogs are the most popular household pets in the United States. In 2011, we are estimated to spend $50.84 billion for our ideal companions. Individually we spend approximately $2,000 per year on each of our dogs. Besides, food and veterinary services, the pet industry is selling us products and services including, dog perfumes, couture, furniture, dog grooming, dog therapy, dog walking, training and care-taking services, dog cafes, spas, parks and beaches, as well as dog hotels, funeral services and dog cemeteries. Dogs are a part of the family.

In comparison, we spend roughly 1.5x as much on cigarettes each year; approximately $75 billion. While smoking causes cancer, dogs become our best companions and reduce stress.
