How does a dog sweat through its mouth?

Dogs, unlike humans do not have sweat glands in their skin and thus do not sweat. The way they keep themselves cool is by panting, which has a similar affect to sweating by pulling heat off of the dogs body and transferring it to the air/moisture in the air.
