Common Dog Myths

Is it scary that I thought all of these were real at one point? Did any of you still think any of them were? I know there is a hint of truth to some of these but for the most part they are incorrecto!

  1. Interesting facs, Leah. Of course dogs have brains. I think they have no Ego, because they live more spiritually than most people. We can learn so much of them, don’t you think? Hope you’re feeling better soon. Sending Healing Pawkisses your way 🙂

  2. I definitely have a brain. Mom says it’s pretty tiny, but it’s there. Sometimes, she also says I have jackasses in my head and they tell me to do crazy things. Maybe…..

    Love and licks,

  3. My doggy has more brains than half of the people I’ve come across in life, however, his mouth is certainly dirtier than that half without brains, Doggy licks his business….
    Great video Leah, funny to see how the furry beast doesn’t move, Doggy would be all over the place.

  4. Very interesting. Thank you for sharing your knowledge. Get better soon. For me this means no dog kisses anymore! I can already see the disappointed dog faces and their brains (which they of course have) in feverish activity searching for a tactic to give me dog kisses again. I’m sure they’ll win.

  6. Great ones! Your friend must have been being silly about dogs having brains. I like Kyla’s comment about humans having brains. 😀 Here are a couple of things I think are myths about dogs: 1) When dogs eat grass it means they’re sick and 2) Cutting a dog’s toenail too short will cause a dog to bleed to death.

  7. Someone on the forum often repeats a researcher’s quote from a PBS show “The plural of anecdote is data.” So, you’re definitely right about that being how some things like the “Dogs mouths are cleaner…” myth becomes accepted fact. So many people said it so often when noticing their wounds getting better after licking that it became accepted as fact at some point. People never finished thinking it out though. If dogs’ mouths were cleaner than ours, they’d have the sparkiest white teeth you ever saw on earth with absolutely no scum on them–for their whole lifetimes. Did you know that they’ve even done tests to see if different breeds had significant differences in the PH of their saliva to try to answer some of the questions about dental disease? http://www.ijvm.org.il/sites/default/files/ph_values_and_mineral_content_of_saliva.pdf

  8. First, I am hoping you are feeling better and I think you look great! I also LOVED LOVED LOVED this video! I loved Kirby sleeping and yawning in the background and your cute little watermark of Kirby that you put on your videos is just the best!! Wish mine were like yours! xoxo

  9. Thanks for sharing this information! It’s amazing how “myths” are taken as fact, isn’t it?

    Kirby, you made us smile real big in the background of the video. 🙂

  10. Yups, Ma thought that doggies only saw in B&W for the longest time too! Silly human!! So glads your settin’ everyone straight Leah!! And, loves that your supervisin’ Kirby!! gotta make sure your Moms gets it right!! BOL
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥
    pees: your lookin’ FABulous!

  11. NOR ONLY THEY HAVE BRAINS BUT PURE FEELINGS…

    THE THING IS AS DOGS DON´T TALK PEOPLE TEND TO THINK THEY DON´T HAVE BRAINS WHICH IS A HUGE MISTAKE…

    I WOULD SAY ALMOST A FALLACY. THEY DO THINK BUT JUST NOT THE WAY WE HUMANS DO,…THAT´S THE WHOLE REAL DIFFERENCE,

    SENDING YOU HUGS, LEAH & A CARESS-PAW TO KIRBY 😉

    AQUILEANA 🙂

  12. What a great video Leah!!! My Nanna always used to feel her Chihuahua’s nose to make sure it was wet…I used to beleive a dog’s mouth was cleaner. Truth is they have more natural peroxide in their saliva then a cat & a human…whic of course they need for their *cleaning * regiment….letting a dog lick a Human’s wound is not a good idea. Been there, done that, got the antibiotic!!!!! hehehe..
    I hope you are feeling better. You look marvellous even when you are unwell….we all should look so good ‘sick’!!!!
    Kiss Kirby for me
    Sherri-Ellen & Nylablue too xx
