Just when you think you know everything about your friend….you find out something that you didn’t already know. Like…..
1/ An adult dog has 42 teeth.
2/ It was recently discovered that dogs do see in color, just not as vivid as we see.
3/ The Poodle haircut was originally meant to improve the dog’s swimming abilities as a retriever, with the pom-poms left in place to warm their joints.
4/ The top five favorite breeds of dogs in the US are: Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever, German Shepherd, Beagle, and Dachshund.
5/ Greyhounds can reach a speed of up to 43 miles per hour.
6/ When a puppy is born, he is blind, deaf, and toothless.
7/ All dogs, regardless of breed, are direct descendants of wolves and technically of the same species.
8/ A dog’s whiskers — found on the muzzle, above the eyes and below the jaws — are technically known as vibrissae. They are touch-sensitive hairs than actually sense minute changes in airflow.
