It's well known that dogs love hanging their heads outside car windows, but until now we thought it was because they enjoyed the breeze in their fuzzy faces. What fools we were!

The shocking truth is, the reason your pup puts his head out the window is because that's where he thinks the food is. Just watch this dog in action. 18-wheelers, 4-doors, hatchbacks, they all mean just one thing: a potentially delicious snack.

We also want to add how dangerous it is to record a video while you're driving. Don't try this on the highway.
