Noses and the Nation Within

(I hope this doesn’t disappear behind a paywall.) Too bad – it is behind a paywall. A fascinating article. Here’s a snippet:

“Dogs keep their noses cooler than their surroundings at most ambient temperatures, as any dog owner will know. My favorite detail from these papers is that when a dog goes to sleep, its nose warms up to normal body temperature, but within 15 minutes of waking up the nose has cooled back down. No one knows for sure yet, but that looks a lot like a sensor switching itself off when it’s not being used. And the authors deserve credit for coming up with a cast-iron excuse to include a very cute thermal image of a sleeping puppy in a serious scientific publication.”
