    DefaultA silly question

    Ok..here goes. One of the things I like most is seeing Tal's tail wag furiously because I know he is happy and liike any parent that isalways fun to see. I know many of you feel the same way.

    My question is this: What function does the canine tail serve? I have yet to figure it out. Just more curious than anything else.

    They use their tails for communicating...like you said about what Tal does. And also to show emotion.
    It is also important for balance.

    But i think its mostly to get the dust bunnies from under the couch

    What a silly question. The canine tail is there to communicate with us how happy they are to see us ;D

    Oh, no. Clearly, the main purpose of the tail is to clear the coffee table of any clutter that may be on it.
