Can dogs catch a cold?

I have 2 dogs, both of them started sneezing late last week. One of them seems to be over whatever it is and has stopped sneezing and is in great form.
My other doggie is still sneezing and has a runny nose. He too is in great form, no problems eating all his food and full of energy.
Could this just be a little cold and do you think it will pass by itself?

I called my vet and they suggested bringing him down but they are always over-cautious and a little money hungry - although they are really good vets but id rather not bring him down unless I had to.

Any opinions?

Yes they can. My dogs have before. As long as it doesn't get worse and clears up soon, that's probably all it is.

Yes, they get colds, they have allergies, all that good stuff. Most of the time they recover from colds with no intervention, but if it lasts too long, or they are coughing excessively a trip to the Vet is in order.
