Dogs are apparently entitled to privacy now. Internet users have pointed out that Google Maps has been blurring out the faces of dogs to “protect their privacy.” A Google statement reads: “When we create Street View content from 360 video recordings submitted by users, we apply our algorithms to automatically blur faces and license plates.”  People took to Reddit to discuss the blurred-out dog faces, with one person writing, “Pooch protection program,” and another writing, “The joke is on them—dogs recognize each other from their butts.”
