Brian invited us to take a look at his private collection of ugly sweater pictures on Flickr and we couldn’t be more excited to share them with you.

If we use the rudimentary equation of seven dog years for every human year, that means that every human minute is actually seven dog minutes, so yeah, one hour is like a whole workday to a dog. In those seven hours, dogs experience the five-stage grief cycle.
