Most domestic rabbits can easily live to be 8 years old, and many can live for up to 12 years. There hasn’t been enough research to know for sure, but it’s thought that, like dogs, larger breeds of rabbit tend to live shorter lives than smaller breeds.
Unlike wild rabbits, who face constant stress and predators, domestic rabbits have regular access to food and safe places to hide. It is possible for a rabbit to die of fright. Loud sounds, such as cats, dogs, loud music, or screaming can lead to a heart attack and put a rabbit into shock, causing sudden death. It can day several days for the rabbit to die this way, and it does not happen often, but it is quite possible.
A study carried out by researchers from six universities and published in Frontiers in Neuroanatomy suggests something that dog advocates may claim they already knew: that dogs could be more intelligent. Dogs learn and respond to commands; cats usually don’t. But cats are cunning hunters with a boundless curiosity.
Scientific tests showed that the dogs had more than twice as many neurons in their cerebral cortex as the domestic cat, with around 530 million cortical neurons to the cat’s 250 million. Because the brain relies on neurons to process information, the more neurons an animal has in its cerebral cortex, the more information it can process. This means that dogs have the potential for more complex and flexible behaviour than cats.
The top speed at which the world’s fastest equine sprinter, the Quarter Horse, has been clocked is 55 mph. The fastest recorded race time for a Thoroughbred is 44 mph. The average equine gallop clocks in at about 27 mph.
You can’t pet Service Dogs because it’s distracting, and if a working dog is distracted because of something you do and their handler gets sick or injured, it’s your fault.
Touching or petting a working dog may prevent him from tending to his human partner. The dog may be in the process of completing a command or direction given by his human, and you don’t want to interfere.
Given that rescue dogs come from more difficult backgrounds, they often require specific living requirements and specialist care that the average aspiring dog owner, through no fault of their own, is unable to provide, making the adoption process very hard.
The adoption process from a rescue is generally a lot more involved as compared to adopting from a shelter. The adoption can take weeks and would mean multiple visits before being finalised. This is an advantage for someone who really wants to be sure about going home with the right pet or animal companion.
It’s important to remember that not all rescue dogs are difficult, some have to be rehomed through no fault of their own and are well trained. You get a sense of achievement when you have a rescue dog, especially when you start to see improvements and how happy your dog is in their new home.
