We always receive the warmest of welcomes from our wonderful animal companions as we return home, but have you wondered what they do while we are away? Are you aware of any other skills they have apart from shaking our hands and catching frisbes?

Join us on the Animal Channel to learn about unknown facts of our animal friends whom we seemingly feel we are familiar with.
