Why the dogs nose are always wet?

The moisture on their nose helps collect and trap scent molecules :)

It helps scent particles stick to their nose.

Report as
Somebody that goes to my church and that my dad visit teaches with, has little morkie puppies, and this really nice older lady in my church adopted one, said she needed to leave church early because of her knees, and came back to show off her puppy right after church ended. Sooo cute!! I want one!!

Morkie? Is that a blend of Yorkie?

It's adorable!!!!

It's a mix of a Maltese and a yorkie :) it's adorable!! So tiny and fluffy! It's still really young so was shaking from all the attention, when my sis handed it to me, he nuzzled into my neck... I officially want one, lol.

Awwww! I'm an animal lover, and a little fanatical! I miss having dogs. We rescue cats, and they have emotional issues from abuse and neglect. We decided not to stress them by adding a dog. It's hard! I want to rescue dogs too. Alas, we've already promised our kitties. They have enough issues relearning trust with humans. Adding a new critter they've never seen would be pretty traumatic.
Hope you get a little pup to love!

Same here! Love the furry animals! Oh and that's awesome! I'd love to rescue animals! Good for you! I actually have a dog: I have a miniature schnauzer. But hey, there's always room for another addition, right? ;) arg no dice though.

There is a limit. :(
We have 9. Because of personalities, they're divided into four groups. We don't have room for more!!!!
My heart has more room than my house. But, the lady from our local humane society is on speed dial! We work together to place others. I get "starter kits" with food, litter boxes, litter, toys and dishes. When we advertise them with those goodies, they get adopted much more quickly!

Oh lol by "another addition" I meant me getting a second dog... But anyway, that sounds like a LOT of work! I think that's great though, that you do that for the little kitties :) you probably make a huge difference in their lives. They have homes because of you :) where do you get all those/find all those cats?? Like, how does the rescuing thing work? I've always wondered!

First, I got your "another addition" meaning. Oh yeah, I got it...9th addition! Lol! I think for everyone rescuing animals, it's unique for their circumstances. For us, we live in the country.
People seem to think that you can release an animal, and it will survive. NOT TRUE! That or they hope someone with more scruples than they, will step up where they dropped the ball. That or they just plain don't care. (Obviously, I have strong opinions about people who dump animals. They would not survive being dropped in the middle of Denali Nat'l Park naked with no food!)
We put out food and water for any little sweetie who needs help. Birds, raccoons, skunks, opossums, fox, and dumped pets. When a domestic animal appears, we befriend it. This takes time. We've tamed feral cats, and calmed lost sweeties. Often, they are near death from starvation, parasites and disease. Sometimes, it takes patience. Sometimes, they are desperate.

Once we have them tamed and trusting, we take them to the vet. They are tested for FIV ( kitty aids), leukemia, rabies, etc. If they do not have a fatal illness, we get them fixed. Then we decide if we will keep them ourselves or put them up for adoption. (Some are so psychologically damaged, they are not adoptable. We are their only option.)
We create the "starter kit" and advertise in the newspaper. We also work with neighbors and animal control.

Sometimes, animal control calls us. We use our contacts and buy the "starter kits" to help them place animals they have found or received.
Anyone who wants to be kind can go to the local humane society. They will gladly "rope you in." You will love it! Getting out of your own head and your own problems to save a life is so rewarding. Everyone says it's altruistic, but the joyful feeling gives back soooooo much! It kind of feels selfish. Does that make sense?

Aw that sounds so amazing! And sad too, poor babies :,( I don't know why you'd get a pet and then just dump it! That's so wonderful of you though! Is if expensive to care for them all? That's cool: you've got the animal places working with you! How did they work? Anyway, I'll have to volunteer sometime :) I'm sure I'd love it! And lol, that's true. Reminds me of a quote (wish I could find it!) that says a man can seldom help another, without helping himself. (Something like that!) I get what you mean though, aha. Love to help cause it also benefits you, as well.
Report as
Yep! You get it! I've heard a quote like that too.
...and yes, we are not wealthy. It taxes us greatly. We do what we can. We never intended to be so involved. Bad guys just keep dumping. Why? There are other options!
Sigh.
