All you moms out there can have fun copying these facts about dogs to your refrigerator doors!

There are still so many things we don’t know about dogs.  Maybe because we focus on dogs’ behaviors, trying to explain in canine terms their seemingly human-like qualities, we think less often of the substantive physical differences because they seem obvious.  Well, I don’t know about you, but I did not know that dogs had more bones than humans!
