Time for a fun fact! Did you know dogs dream? Yup! Those times your dog’s paws are twitching and he lets out little yips, it’s because be’s dreaming. Both humans and dogs have SWS and REM; slow wave sleep and rapid eye movement. It’s during those REM moments you can tell your dog is in his or her dream world.

Farm Bill Passes, Taking Child to Dog Fight or Cockfight Now a Federal Crime

It will also now be a federal crime to be a spectator at an animal-fighting event.

“The spectator admission fees and gambling dollars finance these criminal operations and make dog fighting and cockfighting profitable. Each time two animals are placed in the pit, spectators shout out bets, gambling on which animal will kill the other,” explains Mark Makarian, Chief Program and Policy Officer for The Humane Society of the United States.
