— A doggy’s whole field of vision is 250 degrees. A human’s complete span is 180 degrees.
— Only the noses and pads of doggies have sweat glands.
— On the tip of their tongues, doggies have just about 1700 taste buds. Around 10,000 are found all around the inside of the mouth, including the lips, in humans.
— A doggy’s body contains approximately 320 bones. Adult humans have 206 bones in total.

— The outer shell of a doggy’s nail is comprised of a tougher material that might be black, white, or pink depending on the breed. A fast (or soft) cuticle with nerves and blood supply is found inside the shell. When you trim your doggy’s nails and the quick gets trapped, it will bleed and cause agony to your doggy.
— Your doggie’s hearing ranges from 67Hz to 45 kHz, which is far wider than yours (about 64Hz to 23 kHz). So, the next time your Fido ignores you because he’s looking for a squirrel, just remember that he’s preoccupied.
— The temperature of your doggy varies between 100.2 and 102.8 degrees Fahrenheit.
— The vibrissae in a doggy’s whiskers are particular sensory hairs that can detect minor changes in airflow.

— Doggies are not fully colorblind, contrary to popular belief. However, they are colorblind in the red/green spectrum.
— The purpose of your doggy’s paw pads is to provide abrasion and traction resistance by cushioning his internal leg bones. If your doggy sustains an accident or trauma to his paws, he will most certainly lose limb function.
— Large breed doggies have a heart rate of 60 to 100 beats per minute, while small breed doggies have a heart rate of 100 to 140 beats per minute.
— Because your doggy’s tail is an extension of his spine, any injury to it might have a negative impact on his general health.
