Take a close look at a dogs feet. The paw pads cover what would be the palm of your hand. Your fingers have three sections of bones in it, it bends in three different places and between each bend is an individual bone. The end of your finger has a finger nail. A dogs finger (which is called a toe on all for feet) is similar, except the dogs nail is like the end of your finger. If the whole nail was removed (like when cats are declawed) it would be like removing the tip of your finger. The other two bones of the toe are much shorter than your fingers, then you reach the bottom of the foot, which is similiar to your hand. Their wrist is about an inch up from the bottom of the foot and their elbow is up next to the body and their shoulder is above the elbow (you can feel the tips of the shoulders on his back). So dogs and people have very similiar bones, but the size and position vary.
