The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
These obedient and brave fellows came about in 16th century Portugal. As the name suggests, they are wonderful swimming dogs and were originally bred to assist fishermen.
They would send messages between boats, retrieve fish from the water, pull in the nets and, at the end of the day, guard the boats. Such was their swimming ability that they were even called upon to save drowning fishermen.
The first pair of Portuguese Water Dogs found their way to the United States in 1958, where they flourished and increased in number. We’ve been showering them with affection ever since.
