Survival information

You know what you learned as a boy or girl scout for survival in the woods and how not to get lost, that moss grows on the north side of a tree.  Well now if you happen not to be around any trees and you have your dog along for the hike watch when he/she does number “2”.  A new science study has found that dogs oriented themselves in a north-south direction when they defecate.  I wasn’t sure if this was really true when I first heard it the other day on a news program so I looked a little further.  The link to the research article is: http://www.frontiersinzoology.com/content/10/1/80/abstract

So, now if you would like to make an appointment for a veterinary visit for your dog the next time you are hiking around you can at least tell us what direction you are facing.  🙂
