    Why is it that dogs love to hang there head out of the ar window.  They seem to love it.

    Because their nose is thousands of times more sensitive than ours are, and they are LOVING the smells.

    Gosh, I love it too!  Feeling the air blowing by your face makes you feel at peace with the world.  I suppose that's one of the reasons they like it! big_smile

    Their ears flapping in the wind, the smells and enjoying life (just as long as the bugs don't get in the eyes).

    We all have seen dogs sticking their heads out of windows of cars. Usually they have their tongue sticking out as well.. The reason is they are soaking up information from the world around them. Since their noses are more powerful than ours ,they can sense what is going on around them. I do think they enjoy it. But it is not very safe for the dog to be doing this. They could hit a road sign or some road debris or worse another car. That's what I think.

    I would second the senses thing. If you watch them when they do it, often times their noses are twitching like crazy as they try to absorb all of the different scents flying through their nostrils.

    Some of the posters have already said it, I think they love it because they are collecting so much scents from the air as they go whizzing by.  The speed of the air passing over their nose is bringing that much more scent to them.  I also think its a cooling thing.  Dogs' primary cooling system is their tongue, i.e. panting, so when they are going super fast and have all that air passing over their tongue they are cooling off that much faster.  Same reason we love fans smile  I think both of these reasons make for an irresistible opportunity for fun brought to them by an open window.
