Determining the Cause of Your Dog's Panting
Why does your dog pant? Let us count the whys.
Im awakened by the exhalation of my Border Collies warm breath on my face: heh-heh-heh. I slowly open one eye and focus on the nose just inches from my own. I may be anthropomorphizing, but I suspect hes grinning. There it is again a breathy heh-heh-heh. Wait a minute! Is he just panting or is he laughing at me? Given the way dogs are designed, panting is a very normal bodily function. Dogs dont have sweat glands throughout their body to expel heat like humans do.
