RCMP Helps You need to Name Police Pups

On February 8th, 2022, Nova the police dog gave birth to a litter of 13 adorable German Shepherd pups. Now the RCMP is holding its annual contest to get these little pups named. Kids are encouraged to keep in mind that they will be naming police dogs, not pets. So it’s advised to think less cutesy, and more, well…police-appropriate. Still, creativity and imagination are big factors in winning. Kids still have until March 17th to get their names in.

Dogs Proven to Improve Our Brain Power

A new study out of the University of Florida shows that owning a pet can ward off memory loss and other negative brain functions. (Here at OMDNews we didn’t need a study to show that!) Research shows that the memorization of words, for one thing, has been attributed to being around a loving pet.

The study found having a dog (or other pets in the house) for five years, made significant boosts in brain research. Social companionship and a real sense of responsibility played big in the study. It just amps up that us dog-lovers have that kind of furry care to count on!
