They are not wearing masks and they are sniffing each other within six feet. Dogs are not catching a virus which was originally going after animals. The CV 19 virus is apparently avoiding the bodies/bloodstreams of our pets, in general.
Scientifically speaking ...
Maybe because their owners haven't infected them. There have been few cases that we know of in animals. So far, every case I've read about in animals has been started through human transmission to the animals at zoos. So far it's been big cats, and in one case, a gorilla. I haven't seen any followup on the condition of the animals. I wonder why. I haven't heard of any cases of covid in canines.
I haven't seen any thing published about pets that might have contacted covid from their owners. But if one infected animal got with other animals, like at a dog park, it might spread through them as rapidly as it does through humans. The same goes for feral cat prides, but most feral cats have little chance of human contact.
When I come home from anywhere, my two cats greet me at the door. I greet them back verbally, but before I touch them, I head straight for the bathroom and scrub my hands with an antibacterial soap. I worry about things like that and don't want to inadvertently bring covid home to them.
You've made me curious and I looked it up. There have been cases of covid in dogs. This website has a chart of how many cases have been found in animals in the U.S. and which animals are infected.

I was just watching something off of Channel 4 here in the UK. They had on one of those 5 minute films filmed by a member of the public (presumably). This one had a guy on talking about racism in religion and he poses that God is, if he exists, a racist. Of course my first reaction was to feel...

Scientifically speaking, if Superman was real could he impregnate Lois Lane?At first this question may seem juvenile, but after you look past the comical (pun intended) aspect of the question, you might find it to be a pretty interesting catalyst for a scientific discussion. Maybe?
