About DogsEditA dog is a domesticated form of a Grey Wolf. The dog may have been the first animal to be domesticated, and has been the most widely kept working, hunting, and companion animal in human history. All dogs are generically similar. Natural selection and selective breeding have reinforced certain characteristics in certain populations of dogs, giving rise to dog types and dog breeds.

What do you do when your dog is getting hair everywhere?
You should give it a long bath brush it and do it until the end of the week.Once you do so make sure that its got most of the molting hair off if your dog keeps shedding then take to a professional groomer than if your dog keeps shedding then don't take it to seriously just get as much hair as you can off.
You could also brush it with a brush that could hold alot of hair. I had a German Shepard and it left white fur all over the place, so I vacuumed frequently but not too frequently.
How do you calculate a dogs lifespan in 'dog years'?
The old rule of thumb that dogs age seven times as fast as humans comes from dividing the average human life span by the average canine life span. But it's not very accurate. The old rule-of-thumb that one dog year equals seven years of a human life is not accurate. The ratio is higher with youth and decreases a bit as the dog ages. Depending on breed, a dog experiences the raging hormones of adolescence anywhere from eight months to two years or more. Generally, a dog of six years has aged about as much as a 45-year-old human. At 10, she's like a human of 65; at 12, a human of 75; and at 15, a human of 90. For Example: for a dog that is 10 yrs. old (the first two years) 10.5 * 2 = 21 (plus the next eight years) 4 * 8 = 32 21 + 32 = 53 years oldA dog's lifespan is only a fraction of the average human's lifespan, which means that a dog ages more quickly in the same amount of time.
1 = 15 2 = 24 3 = 28 4 = 32 5 = 36 6 = 40 7 = 44 8 = 48 9 = 52 10 = 56 11 = 60 12 = 64 13 = 68 14 = 72 15 = 76 16 = 80
Are Dogs colorblind?
Dogs are not color blind - they see color, but their chromatic acuity is significantly less than humans'. This is for two reasons: (1) dogs have far fewer cone cells in their retina (cone cells are responsible for seeing color); and (2) dogs are dichromatic (they see only two primary colors - blue and yellow) whereas humans are trichromatic, meaning we see three primary colors - red, blue, and yellow.
Why do dogs have wet noses?
Dogs noses secrete a small amount of mucus which serves two purposes: to help their sense of smell, and to keep themselves cool. The thin layer of mucus helps with the absorption of scent chemicals from the air. In addition, the nose, along with the mouth and the pads of the feet, is one of the locations where dogs bodies release heat. A dry nose CAN mean the dog is sick, but a perfectly healthy dog may have a dry nose, as well.
