Dogs Are People, Too

4 posts in this topic

Because dogs can’t speak, scientists have relied on behavioral observations to infer what dogs are thinking. It is a tricky business. You can’t ask a dog why he does something. And you certainly can’t ask him how he feels. The prospect of ferreting out animal emotions scares many scientists. After all, animal research is big business. It has been easy to sidestep the difficult questions about animal sentience and emotions because they have been unanswerable.

Until now.

Amazing story! All dog lovers will testify that they know their dog has emotions but now there is proof!

There is a great documentary called, "Why Dogs Smile and Chimpanzees Cry" I dare anyone to watch it and NOT cry their eyes out. I've seen it a few times and it still effects me the same way.

5 parts, couldn't find the documentary whole but, so worth watching.

Of course dogs are people! I didn't need a study to tell me that. :P

After 4 hours of class I come home to my dogs excited to see me. Also when I wake up in the morning they go crazy and greet me. Very smart animals.
