(LIFE WITH PETS) Put down the blowdryers, your dog can dry himself! We all try to avoid the inevitable dog shake while bathing our pups. Remarkably as a dog shakes, his spine moves at a 30° angle, yet his skin moves at a 90° angle both left and right. Researchers at Georgia Tech found that in just four seconds a dog can shake himself 70% dry. Check out this high-speed video of Chipper, a yellow lab, drying off at 4.3 shakes a second! — Global Animal
