Curiosities from the dog empire
Have you ever thought about that dogs have their “fingerprints“ too? Do you know where they have their sweat glands? Or if they are really color blind? What kind of dog is the best swimmer? There are so many curiosities in the dog empire, let us present some of them...
A man can be easily identified according to his fingerprints. It is a very well known fact that you cannot find even two persons with identical fingerprints. But how about dogs, do you know what are their tell-tale signs? Well, dog’s nose prints are as unique as human’s fingerprints and can be used to accurate identification too. There are no dogs all around the world with absolutely the same nose prints. Are you surprised? We were...
The color blindness of dogs is one of the myths as well. The reality is that dogs are not color blind, they can actually see colors, just not as vividly as humans.
Even dogs sweat
Did you think that dogs do not sweat and that they just cool down only by sticking out their tongue? This is kind of truth, but only partially. Dogs’ sweat by their sweat glands placed between their paw pads.
How great are dogs in swimming? For example a Newfoundland dog is an excellent swimmer thanks to his webs. On the other hand a Basset Hound will not enjoy swimming at all. There are only a few exceptions who mastered swimming even with their short legs in proportion to their long body.
Head out of the window
Most of dogs stick their head out of the window while traveling by car. It is not because they would be looking around the neighborhood, by their sensitive nose they are actually sucking in odors of the countryside in which they are at that very moment.
Faithful beyond the grave
Dogs are very faithful buddies. In a relation to a man as well as to each other. For example, one of the “dog couple“ was hit by a car in California in 2012. The female dog was laying down beside her “partner“ watching over him, even though there were cars whizzing along.
Like master, like dog
Dogs are really interesting creatures who will most likely never stop to surprise us. Remember to treat your four-legged friends the way you would like them to treat you. There is a reason why we are saying "like master, like dog“.
