The Boston terrier is a bobbed breed, not a docked breed.

That is, he is born with a short tail due to his genes, not because someone cut off any portion of his tail.

Do you let your dog sleep in your bed with you at night? Research has shown that slightly less than one-half of all pet owners share their bed or bedroom with their pet.

Even so, you have likely been told by at least one well-meaning person that your dog should sleep on the floor, in his crate, or in his own bed.

Go ahead and sleep with your dog—it's perfectly safe, as long as you are both healthy.

In fact, sharing your bedroom with your canine companion—as long as he isn't under the covers—may actually improve your sleep, according to recent research published by Mayo Clinic Proceedings.

No problem. These dogs go without tails (or much of a tail, anyway), and they like it that way.

While many dog breeds have traditionally had their tails docked, these 7 breeds are born without a wagger.

They include the French bulldog, Boston terrier, Welsh corgi, and some lesser-known beauties, too.

It's commonly believed that dogs wag their tails to convey that they are happy and friendly, but this isn't exactly true.

Dogs do use their tails to communicate, though a wagging tail doesn't always mean, "Come pet me!" Dogs have a kind of language that's based on the position and motion of their tails.
