Dogs have long been considered “man’s best friend.” It’s fair to say that they have certainly earned the title. The bond between humans and canines is unmistakable.

Dogs have helped us in so many ways and expect little in return. They share our beds, hunt with us, kept vermin and pests away, serve the military and police, assist the disabled, and faithfully remain our loyal companions. The beautiful friendship between Humans and dogs has had some surprising effects on both species. Here are some the ways we’ve helped each other along the way.

10 Outdated U.S. Laws That Are Way Overdue For An Overturn

It took a few centuries, but Canada is finally allowing sorcery again. In June 2017, an updated justice bill was submitted for approval that seeks to lift prohibitions on things that are no longer relevant to 21st century citizens, like dueling, practicing witchcraft, or mocking religion (possibly tasteless, but free speech is free speech). With Canadians getting more progressive in their thinking, it might be time to look at a few other laws that once served a purpose but have now been rendered obsolete by common sense.Read on to see 10 of the most outdated, unnecessary and just plain strange U.S. laws that are still on the books today and are overdue for an overturn.

25 of LIFE Magazine’s Most Memorable Kisses

July 19, 2017 2:33 pm  | Comments: 0 | Views: 32567
Sometimes you need a reason to give another person a kiss. And, as was the case in probably the most famous kissing photo of all time: the iconic picture of a World War II sailor kissing a nurse at the end of the war. But, other times, a kiss is its own reason to celebrate. Whatever you want to call it — a peck, a smooch, a snog — a kiss communicates love in a way that few other acts can match. How people started kissing is a mystery and why we do it is complicated, but, from a child’s sweet kiss to a lover’s sexy kiss, the act is a language of its own. And a photograph of a kiss, it follows, captures that feeling. Here is a look back at 40 years of kisses from LIFE Magazine’s archives of iconic 20th century photography.
