Here's 46 Reasons Why Canines Like To Live Fast - Dogs Sticking Their Heads Out Of Car Windows

Feeling the wind in your hair is not just a human pleasure, because it seems the more hair you have over your body the more you enjoy sticking your head out the window while riding along in a moving car.

As if dogs needed any more reasons for you to adore them, even if you're a "cat person" you can't look through these without mentally going "Awww" and wishing you had a dog with you right now.

Because you know that they would cheer you up instantly.

It's hard not to be won over by their childish enthusiasm and desire to please their master or mistress. Just ignore them when they throw up everywhere and urinate on your carpet. It's just their way of saying 'i love you'.

So take a click through the gallery above and to your canine car window fix, and if you still haven't had your fill of dogs with their heads out of automobiles, check out the video below for more motoring mutt action.

And if you were wondering why they do it, supposedly it's because it allows them to soak up lots of different smells. However, don't try blowing in your pets face to try and replicate this effect, apparently that drives them mad. After all, who in their right mind wants to smell your coffee breath?

"They're pretty much in ecstasy when they're riding in the car and the wind is pushing all these odors in their nose," said Dave Burke, a veterinarian at Grand Traverse Veterinary Hospital. They can discern things we're totally unaware of. Burke said studies show that a dog's nose could be 1,000 to 2,000 times more acute than a human's. (via)
