11 Interesting Dog Facts

I love to hear about other people and their dogs. I also love to hear dog stories. Recently, the Dublin Dog Blog listed a number of interesting dog facts.

Here are a few of them:

  • 13 dogs were counted among the survivors of the sinking of the Titanic. 2 Pomeranians and 1 Pekingese managed to escape the catastrophic iceberg encounter by being smuggled aboard lifeboats by their respective owners.
  • Despite what you may want to believe, your dog actually doesn’t love being hugged. For him, having your arms wrapped around him is an uncomfortable sign of dominance. Not exactly the sentiment you were going for. Ear scratches, belly rubs, or a good old fashioned game of fetch might be a better way of saying “hey buddy, I love you!”

Add in those sweet, stubby legs and you’ve got yourself a recipe for aquatic disaster. Do yourself a favour and stick to the shore.
