I grew up calling it pop; that's what my parents called it. But now I call it soda. I'm not sure when or why I switched it up. I'm a Washington (the good one) native and I've never lived anywhere besides the Northwest (including Alaska).
Just curious. Currently my dogs are in their crates from 7AM to 12PM, then from 1PM to 3PM. But we are going to have to switch and leave them for 9hours straight. So just curious of how long other people leave their dogs.
