A blog is a discussion or informational website published on the world wide web, generally accessible via the internet. Blogs are typically run by individual writers or small groups of writers who use their site as a personal journal or to express their opinions and commentary about a variety of subjects, including politics and current events. Other types of bloggers include corporations, non-profit organizations, universities, and more.
The term “blog” was coined by Jorn Barger on 17 December 1997. The word “weblog” is a portmanteau of “web” and “log”, in reference to the fact that blogs are usually maintained on websites for public viewing. In the early days of blogging, visitors could only leave a comment by emailing the site owner directly. This was not an effective system for generating conversations between visitors and blog owners/authors. Later, pre-moderated comment systems such as Disqus were developed that allowed visitors to comment directly on blog pages without having to contact the site owner first.
Towards the end of 1999 I started my first blog: The Dog Breed Profiles Blog (dogbreedprofiles.com). This was developed purely out of my passion for dogs, with no desire at all to become famous or make money from it
The AKC (American Kennel Club) recognizes and registers almost every breed that exists today. Some of the popular dog breeds are:
Scottish Terrier, German Shepard, Yorkie, Beagle, Boxer, Labrador Retriever and the Golden Retriever.
The dogs have been bred over time to have different functions. For example: terriers were bred to hunt and kill vermin. The same goes for hounds which were bred to hunt game. There are also some dogs that were bred just as companions like Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Poodle and the Bichon Frise.
Tibetan Mastiff is an ancient guardian breed. These dogs have been known to take on bears, leopards, tigers and other large animals without fear; and they have been known to be aggressive with strange people but very protective of their family. These dogs are great guard dogs because of their large size and deep bark. They will not just bark at strangers but will actually attack them if need be. The large head on this dog is a distinguishing feature as well as the thick coat that has a tendency to curl or wave in long cords on the shoulders, neck and tail area. Their tail is usually carried low between their legs when relaxed
I am hoping to start a new series on this blog. I am starting with the most popular dog breeds in the United States and Canada, and then as time progresses I will add more.

These dogs are known as the “Toy” group and include many dogs that have been bred to be lap-dogs. Dogs from this group include the Chihuahua, the Pug, the Pekingese, the Maltese and the Pomeranian. All of these breeds have short legs and compact bodies.
Toys are sometimes referred to as “lap dogs” because they enjoy sitting in people’s laps more than most other dog breeds. In general, they make good family pets as they are not very dominant and get along well with children. They normally get along well with other pets in their household as well.
They are energetic dogs that love to play games and work for their food (you’ll often see them balancing on their hind legs begging for treats).
They can also be stubborn at times when training them, but with a firm hand they will learn quickly and do extremely well in obedience competitions.
The Toy Group includes some of the most popular dog breeds today such as: Chihuahua, Pug, Pekingese, Maltese, Pomeranian and Shih Tzu. Since this group is so popular there is a lot of information about them out there for you to read if you’re interested in learning more about them.”
Bred or trained to have certain characteristics, the animals that were originally used for this type of art were known as “Sled Dogs” and still are in some places. Dogs with the strongest backs and legs were used because they could carry more supplies. The Alaskan Malamute was originally bred for this purpose.
Famous artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo were also commissioned by the wealthy of their time to paint portraits of them with their dog pets. They were not only a status symbol, but also a sign of wealth to be able to afford such a luxury as a dog pet.
Today, dogs are still used for art in some places; however, most of these types of paintings are considered “modern” art and are made by well-known artists. One of the most famous modern-day examples is the painting “Arctic Hysteria” by Salvador Dali, a well-known Spanish surrealist artist. Today, there are many different types of dog paintings offered on the Internet and in galleries.
Biographies can give us insight into human history that we could not get otherwise. Through biographies we can gain knowledge about what our ancestors did day-to-day that we might not be able to find in other ways
Many people believe that all art is subjective, therefore non-objective. But the truth is that there are some objective art rules, or at least guidelines.
The first thing to consider with non-objective art is that it doesn’t mean that there is no object in the piece. It means that the artist has chosen to express the idea or emotion through just color and shape. In other words, the artist wants you to focus on what he or she thinks is important about the object, instead of focusing on the actual object itself. This can be done in many different ways.
In abstract art, for example, the artist might choose not to use a single specific color for a particular subject but instead uses a combination of colors and values to try to get the same effect as using one single color would have had. Some artists do this because they want you to focus more on your emotions about the subject rather than what it actually looks like.
Another way this can be done is by using lines and shapes in a very organized way to express an idea or emotion about a subject instead of trying to make it look exactly like it does in real life. This can also be done by using different values and layers of paint so that it looks three dimensional or by making parts
