Does your dog enjoy sticking its head out of the window? Maybe your dog enjoys running so fast its face looks like it’s in a wind tunnel. You see, dogs love the wind in their face and here are ten perfectly timed pictures that prove they love it…
Ten Dogs Enjoying the Wind Rushing in Their Face
BONUS CONTENT: Top 10 Facts About Wind and Wind Measurement
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.
9 – “Any faster and I will tear a hole in space and time!”
FACT: A knot is a unit often used to measure wind speed and this even pre-dates the first sailing ships!
8 – “These are my portfolio images for the next “Gone With the Wind” movie.”
FACT: These days an “Anemometer” is what is used to measure wind speed and many of the modern ones can even predict it as well!
7 – Even “Safety Dog” likes to feel the wind on his face!
FACT: Right up until 1952 weather vanes were used to indicate wind direction and that was the only way to tell! In 1953, the windsock was invented.
6 – “The wind is so strong it pulled my tongue out!!!”
FACT: Wind direction is given by the direction from which the wind comes, but that doesn’t mean it is really coming from that direction, it might just be blowing downwards in that direction to necessary from it!
5 – “The wind has blown my eyes in!!!”
FACT: Depending on their speed and strength, winds can be known as a breeze, gale, storm or hurricane!
4 – “Sure it hurts, but it’s just so much fun!”
FACT: Short bursts of wind moving at high speeds are known as gusts and these are in fact micro-explosions of gasses and air in the upper atmosphere.
3 – “Did you call me?!?”
FACT: The higher gasses and lower cause differences in air pressure and that ground air rush’s from high-pressure areas to lower ones!
2 – “I can give up, sticking my head out of this window anytime I like!”
FACT: Up in the higher atmosphere wind is the flow of gases, but down here on Earth it refers to the movement of air.

FACT: Higher winds mean more electricity, and wind turbines are tall so they can reach higher altitudes where it’s even windier, but too much wind is bad for a wind turbine! In fact, anything over 30mph winds and the turbines has to be turned off.
