    5 Surprising Things About Dogs

    They are more than just a pet, they are a loyal, faithful, and loving friend.
    But did you know there's more to dogs than fetching and rolling over? Our friends over at The Nature of Things have found 5 surprising hidden talents our four legged furry friends have.

    1. Dogs can count
    Did you know that dogs can be trained to select the larger of two quantities?
    By placing pieces of cheese into two opaque cans, and asking the dogs to select the one that contained the most, they were able to choose the correct one. Just don't ask them to do your math homework.

    2. Dogs sweat out of the bottom of their feet
    Dog's don't just paint when they're hot, they can also sweat from the bottom of their feet!
    Ever notice wet paw prints tracked along the ground, that's the reason why- unless they just stepped in a puddle.

    3. Dogs can see color
    Many people believe that their dogs see in black in white, but dogs do in fact see in color.
    Dogs see in shades of yellow and blue and lack the ability to see the range of colors from green to red. One amusing fact is that the most popular colors for dog toys are red!

    4. Dogs can tell time
    If you've wondered if your dog has an idea of how long you've been gone, there is a good chance that they do. Research shows that dogs can recognize the difference between the length of time of audio tones and have been trained  to press one button for a long tone and another for a short tonne.

    5. Dogs don't understand connectivity
    Ever get wrapped around a tree or telephone pole while walking your dog on a leash? Scientists have done many experiments that all seem to indicate that dogs just don't quite get the idea of "connectivity". Your dog isn’t trying to trip you up on purpose,
    they just don't understand that you are connected together.
