Dog

Must Try

Frank James
I love the outdoors and enjoy delving into history topics! Go Broncos!

Dogs are often referred to as man’s best friend, and there’s a good reason for that. Descended from wolves, dogs partnered up with humans to work together and help each other survive. Since then, hundreds of breeds have emerged, each with its own set of characteristics and quirks. And from there, each dog has a unique personality.

Doggie Traits

Depending on the breed, dogs can weigh anywhere from four to 250 lbs., have ears that flop down or stand up straight, be black, brown, white, beige, red or yellow, have long or short, straight or curly hair, spots, stripes, or wrinkled faces. In other words, dogs come in all shapes and sizes.

Canine Abilities

Dogs have some pretty amazing abilities. Some cool traits are listed below.

  • They can see ultraviolet (UV) light.
  • Many can hear noises from a quarter-mile away or even farther.
  • Their sense of smell is between 1,000 and 10,000 times better than humans.
  • They are excellent at seeing moving objects.

Dog Careers

That’s right; dogs can work too! There are many types of jobs for dogs, and they are happy to help.

  • Lifeguard
  • Ball retriever for tennis matches
  • Diabetes alert dog
  • Truffle forager
  • Police dog
  • Search and rescue

The bond between a human and their furry companion is often unbreakable. We provide each other with the affection, protection, fun and unconditional love that make life so much more fulfilling and enjoyable.

  1. Good article but I wish that you had elaborated on how a dogs nose is it’s fingerprint. Can a dog’s nose be used to identify it instead of micro chipping? Please address this question, thanks.

  2. You said it perfectly !! They are truly our BEST FRIENDS!! They know only one way to love? Unconditionally !! I know our Bubba is right in the same category as our children!!

  3. I second that motion!! Bubba is our backbone and has kept us together throughout the past 5 years of our lives. He’s a Ridgeback/Gentle Giant!! I think the AKC should adopt one day of every year to honor every single breed of Dog on earth! I bet everyone would be shocked at the fanfare of the most popular breeds!! Love your dogger!! We do and we are blessed that he (BUBBA) is in our lives and loves us too!!

  4. Hey frank, I love your articles . I’ve always been a animal lover and it’s refreshing to read about the different types and species.Can you do one on a medium size work dog , I only see large breeds when I type in working dogs.

  5. Hello Mr. James, I really love to read about different types of animals. The variety of species you write about is fantastic. Right now I’m really into work dogs and turtles, so can you do some on those two?

  6. The best friend and companion I had was the toy poodle we had for 16 years. She would say the Lord’s prayer along with me and would always be ready for a ride in the car, snuggle in my chair with me.

  7. I’ve been lucky in my life to have had dogs that have chosen me to be in their lives and all of them were always there to lend me a paw when they sensed I needed it. They all were greater than some people I’ve met in my life. I hope they will be waiting for me when my time comes
