The Dog’s Shoulder Blades

Did you know:

The dog’s shoulder blades (scapula) sit unattached from the rest of the dog skeleton. This allows for greater flexibility and stride length. Unlike humans, the dog's shoulder are partially disconnected from the skeleton. They are completely unattached at the top but there are several muscle and ligament attachments at the bottom. This is why they are such great runners!
