Hey everybody welcome back to Let’s Talk, this is me, your trainer, Meera. Alright, like you can see we have someone here and meet him his name is Coco. Now I’m going to tell you a little bit about him, why? Because, we usually know human body parts, but when it comes to dogs, we are little confused that, hmm… you know what, I saw a dog and he had a patch here, but we call it a nose, guess what? Dogs have different body parts, they have shoulders and chest and belly, but they have so much more that we don’t, and Coco here will help us tell what is exactly what part. So let’s go quickly and learn a little bit more about Coco. So like we can see, now these are “whiskers”. These are small thin hair that even a cat has. But a dog has very, very less, very scanty and very thin. So what are these called? They’re called whiskers, right? And you know what whiskers help them do? Whiskers are like their GPS tracking system, where they can they can track themselves at night and they can see in the dark with the help of whiskers. It’s mostly the airflow and the things around them. It’s the whiskers that help them navigate in the dark, alright? Moving on from whiskers, this area which is the little next to its whiskers, is his “cheek”, right? And then as we all know this tiny little cute thing is his “nose”. And just above the nose this area, let me just point it out is called a “muzzle”, alright? And it’s exactly above the nose that area is called a muzzle. Did you know that, dogs can actually smell feelings of that of humans around them? Maybe you are really, really sweating and the dog will get to know that probably you are nervous or you’re scared, alright? Moving on from muzzle, next up we have “eyes”. Well I’m not going to name it or tag it here because all of us know that. But did you know, that Coco here, just like other dogs can see different colors, a little less than human beings, black, white, blue and yellow are the colors dogs can actually see, did you know that? Well now you know. Moving on, we have something called as, this area, it’s basically a nape, okay? And this just above the eyes is called a, “stop”. So I’m gonna try and write here alright, so that’s a stop, that’s a nape which is a little above the forehead area and then he has a “crest” here. Crest is also a neck, alright? So we are slowly moving from whiskers and down, alright? Now that’s a crest and his neck. Well here, this area is called “withers”. Withers. Sometimes when you see dogs shivering, sometimes their withers shake, alright? And that is why probably the little scare, little anxious and that’s their withers are little shaky, they shiver, right? Moving on from withers, this area is called, “back”, just the way we have our back, so do they, right? And this whole area is, “chest” right over here and this is called a “rump” and rump is placed exactly above and before “tail set”, right? So this over here is called a tail set and this is his “tail”. We see a lot of dogs and when we go and meet them, especially if they are their friends or you have been with these dogs for a long time and they usually start wagging their tail really fast, you know? And that actually is a sign that the dog is excited and super, super happy. You must have also seen sometimes that dog just move around in circles before they go off to sleep and do you know why that happens? Well that happens because they’re making a comfortable area or a bedding area and it is a little warm for them to sleep very, very cozy. Alright, moving from tail, now this area is his “thigh”, alright? I’m going to try and name it here, okay? Now that is his thigh area, can you see it? Okay this is his thigh. Now moving on from thigh, this will be his “belly”, correct? When you combine both of these feet, they’re basically, “hind feet”. Now feet is basically the plural form for foot and as you can see, this these both are hind feet, but now this area which is actually placed on the ground is called, a “paw”, right? Which I have drawn right here so let me quickly name it. Dogs actually have their sweat glands in their paws and that is why they like to keep them wet, so they would go and walk in puddles and they would keep it wet so that it cools them down, you know, and that’s a paw. These will be the “nails” that he has over here are basically his “claws”, alright? So I’m going to name them here, claws okay? Moving on from hind feet we’re going to move to, “fore feet”, okay? Now, what all are we going to learn when it comes to this area? Well now this is his “wrist”. This right here will be his wrist area and this is actually his “elbow”, right here and this you know where it’s a little hard over here, that area is called “pasterns”, what does it call pasterns. Okay, that’s right behind the paw and the actual foot, the claw there is a hard section where he can stop and you know when he sits it doesn’t hold him that much, that’s basically his pasterns. Similarly on this side there is something called as “hock”, which is here. Now exactly here is that hard section which is here in the hind feet it’s here and that’s called a hock, like I said. Well now this is his wrist, pasterns, elbow and these are, here he has “shoulders” this side, these are his shoulders and then these are his fore feet. Well and this is his “forearm”, right? So this is a little bit about Coco and a little bit about the dogs that we usually go end up petting or you know we end up feeding, we end up loving them and hugging them but I just thought that you should know a little bit more about them and properly, right? So apart from this, is there anything that you want to tell me, do tell me in the comment section, especially if you have a pet dog do write to me in the comment section I would be really, really eager to know about them. Any fun facts are most welcomed, alright?
