Picture this - Researchers standing around watching 7000 of us doggies peeing and pooping with compasses in hand to check which way we align ourselves when taking a wizz. Doh - even we doggies are laughing at this one!
Well it appears we like a north south orientation - whoop te doo! We are shaking our heads wondering what use knowing this information will be....as compared to doing REAL research into something important like doggie cancer? Hmm maybe if peeps get lost they can follow our pee and poop trails to find there way home :) :)
If you want to scratch your head and wonder "what were they thinking?" - you can read more about the research here
