I Learn Something New Every Day
One thing I love about being the editor of a dog magazine is I’m constantly learning something new about my favorite subject. If you were to ask my friends and family, they would tell you that I know absolutely everything about dogs, and I admit, I know quite a bit (I’m still waiting for the dog edition of Trivial Pursuit to come out). However, there’s always more to learn, and this month’s issue of Dog World contains some fascinating dog facts I did not know. Take these for example:
Prostate cancer is less common in dogs than it is in humans, and contrary to popular belief, it occurs equally as often in neutered dogs as it does in intact dogs (see “Breeder’s Notebook” on page 20).
Just like humans, dogs can get root canals and have crowns applied (see “To Tell You the Tooth…” on page 32).
Dogs, especially the Northern breeds, rarely experience frostbite on their paws (see “At Home in the Cold” on page 40).
If you’re at all like me, you’ll enjoy these and all the other interesting facts tucked away in this issue.
