A sweet dog with a heart marking. :) Made me smile.

And a little tidbit I found on the net.

WHO DECIDED THAT THERE SHOULD BE 60 SECONDS IN A MINUTE AND 60 MINUTES IN AN HOUR?
The ancient Sumerians did. In 2400 B.C., they were the first to divide a circle into 360 degrees, each degree into 60 minutes, and each minute into 60 seconds. When the clock was invented, its round face lent itself to this sexagesimal system.
