    Because dog.com is not a full URL.
    The full URL is given as the http:// and maybe the www before the domain.
    Like this: http://www.dog.com/
    Your browser thinks you want to look up something when you do not give the full path. Click on the second yellow blob and it will take you there.
    By 2015 the number of mobile-devices will exceed the number of people.

      it does this for every website tho!!!!!!!!!!

      when i type in "dog" on google.com it comes up with results.
      I click on the link that says www.dog.com
      it opens up a weird website

      http://www.homedecorcamp.info/results.php?query=Dog%20Beds

      That website (up above) pops up when i click on the link. If I X out and go back to google.com type in "dog" again and click on www.dog.com
      ANOTHER WEIRD DIFFERENT WEBSITE POPS UP!
