Top 10 Images of Dogs in The Wind

As a young child, you never see the danger in doing certain things. When I was a small boy I loved travelling via train and whenever there was a pull down window in the door of the train I would stand there leaning out of the train window enjoying the views before me and the wind hitting my face and it seems that dogs feel exactly the same way…

10 – The main question is: Could he fly with those ears?!?

FACT: Sea breezes occur because heat from the Sun takes longer to warm the sea than the land, creating a difference in air pressure and thus creating spin and indeed wind, that is why the wind is often stronger on the coast and not because it hasn’t hit land yet.

  1. Joyous activity. I wonder if it’s anything to do with the thrill of the wind and knowing you’re safe, as long as the dog or human head is not too far out! Our dog can never get enough of it in the car but I always understood that it wasn’t good for their eyes so I try to restrict him. If anyone can shed light on this, I’d love to know as I’d like to let him do it with impunity, who’s always a good friend.

  2. Yes. I have your posts sent to me by email. Although I don’t always have the time to visit. I think when you changed hosts, it automatically migrated subscribers

  3. You are the only friend your pet has got. Do not ignore or forget his needs in the midst of your revelries. Thanks for sharing such a great article for animal lover. 🙂

  4. What a fun post! I am with you on hanging your head out into the wind. When I was little, we would take drives just for the heck of it. I can remember being all bundled up with the window down and looking just like one of these dogs (safety-belts, if we had ’em, were not mandated!). Thanks for stopping by and deciding to follow http://www.chasingrabbitholes.com ! ~ HuntMode

  5. I love these photos! And your website is awesome. I’m having so much fun going through all of your previous posts!

  6. Awesome top ten. Dogs love the wind because it brings in aromas from far and wide and a big chunk of their brain is given over to smells. They have a huge number of receptors in their nose and actually ‘see’ the world through smell. That is why when they approach you they look at your face to see if you are friendly (they are tuned into human faces, especially the right side) and then they sniff you. They can tell where you have been and who you have been with. There nose tells them if you are healthy or unwell. Some dogs can ‘smell’ cancer cells even before they show up on scans. The little guy licking his nose is doing that because a wet nose does a much better job of detecting a range of different smells. Amazing creates indeed!

  7. OMG!!!! That is a case of funny timing or I am truly, truly honoured if I have so much as inspired someone to do that! ( I wish it was true) Mega find though so thank you.

  8. Brilliant post, great photos! 😆 Dogs do love the wind! Your little captions for each really made this very funny. No.1 was spot on, that is what happiness looks like on a dog – though I’m tempted to add ‘even if my eyes are blood-shot and the tops of my eyes are lifting in the wind!”

  9. Now #9 has got to be my favorite only because he looks just like my Sam. They are all great fun. 🙂

  10. Great photo’s but it’s No 3 for me! How fast was the truck going to get that pic! 😀

  11. I love 4 and 5 – they made me laugh out loud. I have always noticed dogs love having their heads hanging out the window enjoying the breeze – plus all those fascinating smells.

  12. Why dogs love sticking their heads out the window–who knows…
    but being a dog owner i see ‘doggy chops’ blowing in the wind often…
    really enjoyed these doggy shots…
    thanks for the chuckle~
