I just read an article on Dogtime that made a list of 20 interesting facts about dogs.
Here are some questions for you. No peeking! Answer them to yourself first. 🙂
- How much better is a dog’s sense of smell compared to a human’s sense of smell?
- How much more accurate can a dog hear compared to humans?
- Which part of a dog is similar to a human’s finger print?
- How long does a female dog carry her babies before they are born?
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
If never spayed or neutered, a pair of dogs can produce 66,000 puppies in 6 years.
The average dog can run about 19 miles per hour at full speed.It is a myth dogs are color blind: they actually see color, just not as vividly as a person.
With an average lifespan of just over 11 years, the typical dog costs $13,500.
