If you think that they are just cute and cuddly, then prepare yourself for what you will discover today.
We already know that we can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Beyond the usual—sit, stay, shake, fetch, roll over—it’s natural to assume that your doggo is kind of limited (than a very furry, very cuddly best friend.) Well, your assumption is, unfortunately, incorrect.
As it turns out, your dog is basically a bonafide superhero. Most dogs have inherent skills that we might think are more like magical powers. From UV vision to the seer-like ability to predict earthquakes, they are undeniably awesome. Yes, we might not be able to teach an old dog new tricks. But here are 10 incredible things they can do, which you never thought they could.
#1. They can sense a pregnant woman.
#2. They can run faster than most urban speed limits (especially Greyhounds).
#3. They can be water-resistant, too. (Shocking!)
P.S. This is actually mostly for Newfoundlands because of their water-resistant coats (and webbed feet!)
#4. You can teach them to tell time.
#5. They can count, just like you do.
#6. They can see color.
#7. They know when they’re being treated unfairly.
#8. They can sense biochemical changes in a diabetic person.
#9. They can predict the weather.
#10. And earthquakes, too.
