4 Man s Best Friend Joshua Mumford kayaking with Ginger the dog. Dogs and humans have been together for thousands of years.

For example they ve hunted together, played together, and worked together. Canine Clue: Dogs are the oldest domesticated animals and have been with humans for over 33,000 years.

5 Dogs have five senses just like humans but theirs are much more sensitive. Humans have five million smell cells and that sounds like a lot but that s nothing compared to German shepherds and bloodhounds. They have two hundred million smell cells. Dogs have special noses that are good for smelling and they even have more of their brain that works on smelling than human brains. Over 1/3 of a dog brain is focused on smelling. Surprising Senses Canine Clue: A dog can hear noises four times farther away than people. That s why a watchdog barks before you can hear anything. Bloodhound that smells something.

The world they see looks like a dreary snowy day. Scientists just made this discovery about dog vision in

7 Acting is another kind of job for dogs. Some dogs are natural entertainers. A dog must be friendly and obedient if they want to be in shows and commercials.

8 Dogs of History Dogs have an impressive history. Most scientists believe dogs are descendants of the gray wolf. Some scientists think all modern dogs come from three pups in China thousands of years ago. Dogs have changed over time from their ancestors. Their behavior changed from wolves. They got shorter muzzles and they now have smaller bodies and teeth. Dogs still have strong jaws and teeth like their cousin the wolf so they can tear meat. Dog Family Tree 6
