Facing north whilst pooing


New research indicates that, like many other animals, dogs are sensitive to the earth’s magnetic field. However, instead of using it to navigate like many insects and birds do, it appears that dogs have a preference for aligning themselves to the earth’s magnetic axis when it’s time to poo.
At least that’s the conclusion researchers came to at Prague University, after studying 70 dogs from 37 different breeds over the course of two years.
Note to self: don’t forget compass when walking Ozzy.

Maybe too it has something to do with wind direction, so you don't get your own back!

I'll have to ask Simi about it!

WW, yes, I agree.I hope it was researched during the winter months. It gets pretty hot in Prague over the summer.
ADDY, why not?
WL, Simi will tell us. I asked Ozzy and he looked at me in utter confusion.
