Dog Trivia Diane J DJ Lost I know Charlie and Rich (and DJ) are huge dog fanatics so here is some trivia on the subject:

A dog’s sense of smell is one of the keenest in nature. If a pot of stew was cooking on a stove, a human would smell the stew, while the dog could smell the beef, carrots, peas, potatoes, spices, and all the other individual ingredients in the stew. In fact, if you unfolded and laid out the delicate membranes from inside a dogs nose, the membranes would be larger than the dog itself.

Dogs only sweat from the bottoms of their feet, the only way they can discharge heat is by panting. Dogs and wolves yawn as a sign of contentment.

It was recently discovered that dogs DO see in color -- just not as vivid as the color that humans see.
