I am sure as you already guessed – I LOVE DOGS! They are truly a woman (and man’s) best friends!
Did you know archeologists have found fossil records of domesticated pet dogs alongside humans from as long as 14,000 years ago! Wow - that’s a long time. That’s 140-280 generations in human terms, or nearly 100,000 dog years!
It’s fascinating what can happen in as long a time. What started presumably with frail wolves ousted from their packs, gravitating towards early human settlements for scraps and protection – have evolved into over 300 breeds of dogs we know and love today.
Over these 14,000 and probably more years, humans only selected the genetic variations in the offspring of these initial outcast wolves which best suited our needs. Which is why all puppies look cute to us today, because the ones which didn’t, or those who were extremely aggressive towards humans - we never further developed their genetic variations, all those thousands of years ago.
We only developed the genetic variations/behaviors/characteristics we liked or needed in our new best friends. So, the dogs we know and love today, have come down a very long line of natural genetic variations and human selection – leading them to look and behave the way we know them too!
But all these variations in dog breeds only exploded over the last 200 years, when humans began cross-breeding dogs in the 19th century. Before then dogs were groomed over thousands of years in somewhat isolated pockets across the world for different and unique characteristics. From small cute ones for royalty to bigger, sportier or more protective ones for working alongside humans.
Along with the explosion of dog breeds, also came an explosion in gifts for dog lovers! With so many more dog breeds and owners, best gifts for dog lovers
(especially dog mom gifts) are now amongst the most popular gifting category in the US and around the world.
I did some research, and here’s what I found for many of the more popular breeds and website
we know and LOVE today. One of my favorites are:
Dachshund is a German word meaning “badger dog” - "Dach" means badger and "hund" means dog - primarily groomed to hunt badgers in the wild. They are a loyal companion and good with children if treated well. Smart and vigilant, with a big-dog bark, they are good family dogs and they can also make watch dogs. They can be brave and a bit stubborn, but their endearing nature and unique look has won millions of hearts the world over. However, as Dachshunds were bred to be hunters, they are ranked high for destructiveness. But their versatility makes them excellent family companions. Their keen nose also gives them an advantage over most other breeds for trailing when on the hunt.

They are good around children of all ages. Most are moderately friendly toward strangers.

French Bulldogs / Frenchie
The French bulldog’s origins are murky, somewhere in France, with further roots tracing back to English bulldogs. In France, the English bulldogs probably bred with terriers to create French bulldogs.
A Frenchie is a companion dog amongst the world’s most popular small dog breeds. In fact, in 2015, they were the 4th most popular dog in both the United Kingdom, and in the U.S. They demand attention, like many other companion dog breeds, requiring close contact with their humans. French bulldog is most often mistaken with the Boston Terrier and English Bulldogs, as they resemble a lot.
