What’s interesting about dogs
Dogs can be pretty smart
You might sometimes think your dog is as daft as a brush, but the truth is that they can actually be as smart as a two year-old child, according to research presented to the American Psychological Association.Perhaps unsurprisingly, border collies are the cleverest canines, with some able to understand up to 200 words. The other breeds in the top five are poodles, German shepherds, golden retrievers and dobermans.
Dogs can smell disease
If your canine chum is acting strange there might be nothing wrong with them - the problem could be with you.Research at the Schillerhohe Hospital in Germany found dogs have an incredible ability to recognise the smell of a range of organic compounds that show the human body isn’t working as it should.That means your dog can actually diagnose your cancer, something scientists are eager to explore further, as well as diabetes and the early signs of an epileptic seizure.
Dogs have their own ‘fingerprint’
A dog’s paw print may look pretty generic but their nose print is actually as unique as a human fingerprint. Their combination of ridges and creases is so distinct it can actually be used to identify them.Good luck getting them to stick their nose in a pad of ink without sneezing though..
Your pupils’ photos
Dogs are pretty damn cool. They make fantastic companions to humans, are adorable and fuzzy, very loyal, overwhelmingly cuddly, friendly, and they are just plain fun! Who’s the first to greet you when you come through the front door after a long day? It’s most always your happy pup followed closely by (if you have them) your children. This welcome home party is just what you needed.
