Dog Logic of the Day: Pooches Point North and South When the Pee

Scientists recently discovered that dogs prefer aligning their bodies with the Earth's magnetic field when relieving themselves.

According to a study published in Frontiers in Zoology, 70 dogs out of 37 different breeds were observed taking care of business over 7,400 times (sounds like a fun job...). The dogs showed a preference of positioning themselves with the north-south axis. Results of the study found that they not only prefer facing the north-south direction, but also deliberately avoid aligning themselves in an east-west position.

Who knew your dog would come in handy as a compass every time it drops a deuce? I guess that gives one more reason to call them "Man's Best Friend."

According to the head driving coach Mark Vette, the dogs spent a few weeks to learn the basics of operating a vehicle, such as starting a car, accelerating and facing forward with their paws on the steering wheels, which will be showcased during an upcoming episode of the New Zealand current affairs program Campbell Live on December 10.
