5 Cool Things About Dogs
Today is Responsible Dog Ownership Day. As a dog lover and owner of a sweet, yet sometimes moody Snorkie, this is a day that I really appreciate. In honor of the day, i have presented some fun facts about dogs.
- As many dog lovers already know–dogs really ARE smart. The average dog can comprehend up to 250 words and gestures and count up to 5. Some dogs even know how to use public transportation. Yep, it’s true–Russian dogs use the subway to go on foraging expeditions.
- Contrary to popular belief, dogs really are NOT color blind.They can actually see in color-something like our vision at dusk.
- A one year old dog is as mature, physically, as a 15 year old human.
- American’s LOVE dogs! In fact, the U.S. has the highest population of dogs, with France coming in 2nd.
- The average city dog lives 3 years longer than a country dog. I admit that this one surprised me. I would have thought living in the city would cause a lower life span due to stuff like smog and say, cars.
