#1. Did you know that George Washington ordered a ceasefire during the Revolutionary War to return a lost dog to its owner, Sir William Howe, a British general. The dog was found wandering the battlefield and was fed and cleaned before being returned to Howe.

#2. Did you know that 700,000 year old stone tools were found in the Philippines despite the fact that known humans didn't arrive until 600,000 years later. Researches aren't sure how humans got there or what early hominid could have even made them.

#3. Did you know that an animal shelter in Maricopa County, Arizona, has a program where you can spend your 4th of July comforting the animals and keeping them calm during the loud fireworks.

#4. Did you know that Joe Perry sold his 1959 Gibson Les Paul during his 1982 divorce. Later he found the guitar was owned by Slash. Perry called Slash and bugged him for years, offering to pay more than the guitar's worth. Years later at Joe's 50th birthday party, Slash finally gave him the guitar as a gift.

#5. Did you know that dogs can tell time by smell. They can smell different times of the day, and how long you've been gone by how much your(owner's) smell has dissipated since you've left.
