Good morning and welcome to Doggie Dialogue:
We will be starting a “RUFF TAILS” section on our blog and would love for you to please submit a funny story about your beloved dog/dogs and a picture (if possible) so we may post on our weekly blog. We all could use a smile!
Daisy our 1 year old yellow lab has decided she would like to be considered for the upcoming hunting season. We gracefully declined as we are not hunters.
THE END. LOL.
This week’s blog is Doggie Fun Facts:
Did you know……
A dog’s nose print is unique, like a human finger print.
Dogs pant to cool themselves.
Dogs sweat through the pads of their feet.
Dogs can sniff at the same time as breathing.
Dogs use their tails for swimming and to keep balance while running.
Petting a dog for 10-15 minutes can lower blood pressure by 10%, also help lower feelings of stress, depression, and combat loneliness.
Some dogs have such good noses they can sniff out medical problems. i.e. seizures, cancer and insulin levels.
Dogs do not wag their tails when they are alone.
When your dog is choosing the perfect place to “poop” do you know it is because they prefer to “poop” in alignment with the earth’s magnetic field.
Dogs have 3 eyelids. The third lid is called “haw” and keeps the eye protected and lubricated.
Two different breeds have a fully black tongue. The breeds are a Chow Chow, and Shar-Peis.
Dogs can see colours, primarily blue, yellow, and gray. They are unable to distinguish between red and green.
Dogs have excellent vision in dim light and are more sensitive to motion which make them fearless hunters.
Dogs have amazing peripheral vision. Some breeds have a panoramic view of almost 240 degrees. ( Humans 180)
Dogs learn human behavior and can read our “body language”. For example, “are you getting your shoes on?” or “are you getting a treat out of the cupboard?” Dogs are always waiting for the next step.
Many of you will agree that dogs enrich people’s lives in so many ways. Whether it is companionship, the unconditional love or us laughing at their “silliness” may they bring a smile to your face and joy in your heart for as the many years as we have them.
