Our Spokesdog

 

To keep themselves warm in the winter, dogs sometimes curl up with their tail covering their nose. 

I would much prefer a nice warm blanket..thank you!

 

Dogs have been man's pet for over 14,000 years.   Well all I  can say is..Wow!


Did you know that animal shelters report that more black cats and and dogs are euthanized every year than any other color animal.  

   Whaaat?? People don't want to love a black dog or cat?  I love them!

  

  Did you know that turtles breathe through their butt???    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat????

Ok it isn't called breathing but they can absorb oxygen through the mucus membranes of their rectum.   

It is possible for the turtles to sustain an oxygen supply for an extended period of time through this process.

Stone-aged people tamed dogs to help them track game. About eight thousand years ago, ancient Egyptians raised Saluki hunting dogs. Saluki is an arabic word meaning noble one.  These dogs are probably the oldest known breed.  But I'm better looking!

Did you know that during her reproductive life, a single cat can deliver over 100 kittens!?!
Wow! people should make sure they get spayed!

Dogs naturally have a wonderful sense of smell. They have many more sensory 'smelling' cells than a man's 5,000,000. A Dachshund has 125,000,000, a Fox Terrier 147,000,000 and an Alsation (often used as a 'sniffer' dog) has 220,000,000.  

  I wonder how many my sniffer has???

Have you ever wondered why cats are so flexible? Well, cats have free-floating clavicle bones. These "flexible bones" allow them to go through very tight spaces, as long as their heads can pass through.   

  Wow! and here I thought they were magical!

 

Did you know? coyotes are very good swimmers.  The coyote appears often in the tales and traditions of Native Americans-usually as a very savvy and clever beast.  Coyotes are formidable in the field where they enjoy keen vision and a strong sense of smell.  They can run up to 40 miles an hour.  In the fall and winter, they form packs for more effective hunting.  Coyotes form strong family groups.  In the spring, females den and give birth to litters of three to twelve pups.  Both parents feed and protect their young and their territory.  They communicae with a distinctive call, which at night often develops into a raucous canine chorus.
 Ooooooo! they give me the shivers when I hear them sing!
Did you know that over millions of years dogs have developed bigger brains than cats because highly social species of mammals need more brain power than solitary animals, according to a study by Oxford University. 
 Hahahaha I knew it!

 

Did you know that yeast dough - dough that is not cooked and contains yeast can rise in your pet's stomach, causing pain, and can potentially cause the intestines to rupture.  
 Oh! please don't let us eat that stuff! 
 
Ya know thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this... hmmmmmmm  

Did you know that a scorpion can have up to 12 eyes? I wonder if they all blink at the same time?? 
 

 
Do you know what I heard? If a cat washes her face over her ear, 'tis a sign the weather will be fine and clear! Who would have known?? 
 
 
 
A year is not just a year for a cat! The first year of a cat's life equals
(in terms of development) the first 15 years of a human life.
After its second year, a cat is 25 in human years. After that, each year of
a cat's life is equal to about 7 human years.
Hmmmmm why are cats so complicated?
 
 
 
 
English school children believed seeing a white cat on the way to school was sure to bring 
trouble. To prevent the bad luck, they were to spit or turn around completely and make the sign of the cross. 
 Ewwww spit?? 
 
Native American Animal Medicine 
Animal medicine is the idea that, when we see animals, they are trying to tell us something. This is different from the idea of animal totems, which are with an individual throughout his or her life and represent something intrinsically meaningful to them. Tribes, families and other groups also have totems. Lessons from animal medicine are immediate concepts that are important to the person who sees the animal. 
Dog- Nobility, faithfulness, loyalty, teaching, protection, guidance 
Cat- Detachment, sensuality, mystery, magic, independence 
  Don't ya love the dog one? 
 
Did you know.. 
The five most common dog names are: 
Male: Max, Jake, Buddy, Bailey and Sam 
Female: Maggie, Molly, Lady, Sadie and Lucy 
  and   
Dachshunds were bred to fight badgers in their dens! Whew! I'm glad I'm not a Dachshund!  
Please come back to learn more! and most of all..thank you for caring! See ya later!
