Happy #InternationalDogDay! To celebrate all the good doggos out there, let’s dive into some of the most important pup-related Qs.

Up first, the origin story of “doggo,” a term that has been around a lot longer than you’d think 1/ wired.trib.al/JscihMQ
Now, for the scientific answer to the question every dog owner has pondered at some point—especially when it’s late or 13 degrees outside #InternationalDogDay 2/ wired.trib.al/CeNUYia
If you’ve ever tried to do yoga with a pup around, you’ve probably found it difficult to get through a session without your doggo budging in to get on the mat.

It’s not because they love yoga. It’s because they love you #InternationalDogDay 3/ wired.trib.al/0SwcgU9

It’s #InternationalDogDay. So in honor of good dogs everywhere, this is a story about Pawsitive Change, a program that pairs inmates with rescue dogs. 1/ wired.trib.al/Sm64tzz
📸 Shayan Asgharnia
The program, where inmates train dogs so that they can be adopted by forever homes, launched in 2016 at the California City Correctional Facility and proved wildly successful. Photographer Shayan Asgharnia documented the training sessions in 2017. 2/ wired.trib.al/Sm64tzz
Inside the prison walls, Asgharnia witnessed a series of remarkable transformations. "The inmates want so badly to get into the program," he said. "It gives them a sense of purpose." 3/ wired.trib.al/Sm64tzz

George Bush Sr's dog got so fat in 1992 that he (Bush) sent this memo to all White House staff.

#InternationalDogDay
So, uhh, years later, George Bush Sr. wrote a letter to a puppy (!!) and mentioned the death of Ranger, the fat dog.

(Found in 'All the Best, George Bush: My Life in Letters and Other Writings')
(If I only tweeted about letters written by people with impeccable histories, I’d never tweet. Just enjoy the nice dog letters.)

1) One of the most abominable things done by the Communists was their killing of race horses and hunting dogs [this happened on a massive scale in both Hungary and Russia, probably other Communist countries too], because both were associated with nobles. #InternationalDogDay
2) Borzois, Vizslas and many other hunting dog breeds were brought to the brink of extinction by Communist hatred of dogs. Some of the things they did to dogs was abominable beyond all human imagination. The early 20th century was the worst time for hunting dogs everywhere.
3) In Germany, Austria-Hungary and Russia, with nobles fleeing for their lives due to large scale disruption, there was no one to care for these unhappy creatures. Also, invading armies shot and killed dogs because they would either protect their territory or give warning barks.
