When your dog gets a sudden burst of energy, it’s adorable and something we all laugh about. But when we do this, it’s not always as random as you’d think. Oftentimes, “zoomies” as humans call them have a specific reason. Sure, sometimes they’re just for fun, but believe it or not, running around like crazy can be well thought out too.

Have you heard of the term, dog “whale eye” before? It’s an unusual term, but it’s a fairly common behavior for dogs.

I’ve been told that dogs can be unpredictable, and that’s probably true. After all, I love to bark, but only at specific dogs. For example, I’m bothered by that Goldendoodle that walks past my yard and I always have to bark back when the neighbor Chihuahua yips at me. But then there are other dogs that I completely ignore.

When I first came up with this article idea, I had no idea that a majority of the population would get the chance to work from home. As a freelance writer, Molly always works from home with me by her side, but ever since the coronavirus pandemic started, it’s become more of a norm for people. (Click title to read more!)

I don’t usually like to call anyone “bad”, but there are certain actions people do that can be considered good or bad. Dogs are known for being loving and forgiving, no matter how a human treats them. However, research actually suggests that dogs can clearly differentiate a “good” person from a “bad” person.

With so many humans getting COVID-19, there just aren’t enough tests for everyone! Luckily, dogs might be able to provide a solution for this problem. Dogs have been known to sniff out different human health concerns such as cancer and low blood sugar, so scientists are currently looking to see if these pups can also smell the coronavirus.
