Happy National Dog Day!!

A Chihuahua mix named Rascal

This morning I signed in to Facebook to learn to is "National Dog Day". In celebration of dogs, it gave me an idea to write this blog. I plan to share dog photos with random dog trivia facts.

Dogs are smart creatures. They can understand up to 250 words and gestures. The average dog is as smart as a two year old.

A sign of dominance to a dog by another animal, is placing a paw or limb. A hug to us, is a sign of dominance to them.

A service dog knows what is trained to do. Do not try to pet or coax a service dog away from its duty.

The wetness of a dogs nose tells them which direction a smell is coming from.

Spiked dog collars were invented to prevent attacks in ancient Greece. Now they are used to make a dog look more powerful.

A dogs nose works one millions more times efficiently compared to human noses.

Female dogs are twice as likely to bite as male dogs.

There are over 700 types of pure breed dogs.

If dogs are not neutered or spayed, a pair of dogs and their offspring in six years can produce 66,000 pups. This is why spay and neutering is necessary if you are not a breeder.

Just like our human babies, Chihuahua are born with a soft spot on their head. It closes as the Chihuahua ages.

A dogs mouth can exert up to 200 pounds of pressure, depending on the breed.
