    Number 13 I think may be slightly off. My chihuahua’s I think finite because they are cold as well. Because when they are under a blanket the tend to stretch out. But when not under a blanket the tend to curl up.. something to think about. But I can see the logic of curling to protect vital organs.

      Hi Debi! You are right! Latte curls up when she’s cold too. There are probably more than one reason for curling up 🙂

    Great infographic. Thanks for the share! I find it incredibly interesting that dogs only have sweat glands behind their paws. I would have figured that they’d also have them in their armpits. My dog typically gets a ‘brownish’ color there, which I had figured was from sweat stains. Also, <3 Rin Tin Tin!

    Mind if I share this infographic with my readers on my website http://bestdogcratesandbeds.com?

      Yeah me too! It can still moist at the armpits due to the creases there, maybe that’s why 🙂 Yes, pls share!
