Decorative objects confuse you, paint trends will forever remain a mystery to you and you think that there's no worse fate that could befall someone other than having to spend a Saturday afternoon inside a Home Goods.

But just because you don't get home decor, doesn't mean your furry friend is completely aloof. That's right, dogs isn't just a loyalrunning companion, they can also be incredibly astute when it comes to interior design. And in honor of National Dog Day, we're taking a moment to acknowledge this little known truth.
