What not to feed your dog [Infographic]

Most people can say that at some point in their lives they’ve owned a pet. With that in mind I can comfortably say that I haven’t had any pets in a long time, but that lately I’ve been seriously considering getting a dog. As I indicated in last week’s post, I personally think that dogs are some of the best pets that people can own; they’re loyal and they’re always happy to see you. Plus, if you know the basics of dog-care they’re not hard to take care of.

With how much crazy stuff dogs seem to regularly eat, it’s hard to imagine that some of the most seemingly harmless foods can give a dog so much trouble. I even knew of a friend’s dog growing up who ate things that included (but were not limited to) lemons, shoes, and even a cigar!

Specifically concerning a dog’s diet, today’s infographic from sfist.com shows the reader what types of food dog owners should keep away from their dogs in order to keep them healthy. For instance, it’s common knowledge that dogs should stay away from chocolate and other cocoa-derived products, but I had no idea that onions and avocado could be dangerous for dogs, too.

For more info on foods that could be harmful to your dog, refer to the infographic below. [Via]

The DNA of a Successful Book [infographic]

Today’s graphic illustrates the ‘perfect’ book. A piece of literature that pleases a broad crowd a lot like pop music. Just like pop music’s 3 minute song, best selling books have a normal length of a little less than four hundred pages. Men are more likely to read a story with a male protagonist, yet a publication with women protagonists are much more likely to become a big hit. Recently books have been said to be losing ground in the entertainment industry – I don’t know if I agree. Books are still huge hits, digitally and physically. For some reason e-book didn’t put paperbacks into the grave – some argue digital sales help sell more physical copies.

I’ve been a book worm my entire life. My entire life except college. Besides re-reading the Hobbit for the upcoming film and a dozen books for classes, I haven’t read for pleasure in almost three years. This is going to change, and as an avid Game of Thrones fan I think I’ll start with A Song of Ice and Fire. My roommate last year spent hours reading the entire seriers in only a few months. We didn’t see him too often, but the literature is supposed to be superb. I’ll be taking a trip to Half Priced Books soon to see what diction they have deals on. [Via]

Let’s Take a Drive [infographic]

Do you feel like taking a drive? Driving can be so stressful in the early morning, while racing to work, but it can also be so very relaxing in the right environment. Today, we are focusing on the soothing, so sit back, buckle up and get ready for a ride.

Today’s infographic takes us through the 10 most beautifully challenging highways, all which are blissfully tackled in a Suzuki. From West Virginia and Maine to to California and Hawaii, these drives will take you through all of the terrain that the United States has to offer.

While I haven’t made any of these drives, all of these may make their way on to my bucket list. If I have to play favorites, I would most love to take a spin around the Big Sur Costal Highway in California. Beachy California a convertible can’t be beat.

Do you have a favorite drive? Is it one on the list? We would love to know! And you would love it in a Suzuki. [Via]
