Celebrate National Dog Day with LICM. Everyone knows a dog is man’s best friend, but many might not realize all the ways dogs can help us. Dogs can hear four times better than humans which means that they are able to sense things like small rodents, bugs, and even earthquakes. Come design your own dog ear headband to wear home. Stop by anytime between 2 and 4pm. This craft takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and it's yours to keep.
