Dogs have three eyelids. The third lid, called a nictitating membrane or “haw,” keeps the eye lubricated and protected.
A dog’s shoulder blades are unattached to the rest of the skeleton to allow greater flexibility for running.
Pekingese and Japanese Chins were so important in the ancient Far East that they had their own servants and were carried around trade routes as gifts for kings and emperors. Pekingese were even worshipped in the temples of China for centuries.
After the fall of Rome, human survival often became more important than breeding and training dogs. Legends of werewolves emerged during this time as abandoned dogs traveling in packs commonly roamed streets and terrified villagers.
Interesting Dog Fact
The word “werewolf” derives from Old English compound “were” (meaning “man”) and “wulf” (meaning “wolf”)
The most dogs ever owned by one person were 5,000 Mastiffs owned by Kublai Khan.

The Law states (via the Control of Dogs Order 1992) that "Every dog while on a public highway or place of public resort ( this basically means every dog not at home on private property) must wear a collar with the name and address of the owner (including postcode) inscribed on it, or a plate or badge attached to it"
This pic from the Kennel Club shows what must "by law" be included on your dog's tag.
Some people are of the opinion that if their dog is micro chipped, they do not require a dog tag with their contact details on it. This is incorrect, and you should always have a dog tag on your dogs collar no matter if they are micro chipped (which I highly recommended) or not.
Certain dogs are exempt from having to wear a dog tag. They are:
- Any dog registered with the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.
- Any dog while being used in emergency rescue work.
- Any dog while being used on official duties by a member of Her Majesty's Armed Forces, HM Customs and Excise or the police.
- Any dog while being used for driving or tending cattle or sheep.
- Any dog while being used for the capture or destruction of vermin.
- Any dog while being used for sporting purposes.
- Any pack of hounds.
They only cost a few pounds and there really is no excuse :-) Especially if it reunites you with your lost pooch :-)

- They absorb water much more rapidly without the need for rubbing (better for your pooch's coat!);
- You don't have to rub hair to get the water out so there is minimal friction between the towel and hair fibres - less friction means less breakage and a nicer coat;
- Hair that's been wrapped in a microfiber towel will dry a lot faster than hair that's been wrapped in a regular towel;
- Microfiber doesn't produce lint (bits of white fluff). Lint from regular towels can cause hair tangles.
- It helps to reduce hair "frizziness".
