just for fun

Not sure what was going on, but I stumbled upon two articles about dogs and glasses today.  I know it’s a little outside the normal topic of the blog, but I had to share.  I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.

First meet Chanel, who at almost 21 is the world’s oldest dog.  She wears glasses for cataracts.  You can read more about Chanel, and check out more pictures at MSNBC.

And then from the April 1939 issue of Popular Science, an article about dogs and glasses.  The article talks about reasons for dogs to wear glasses (mostly nearsightedness) and even talks about the eye exam.  Check it out (article is online through Google magazines).
