Ran across this great article from Time that I thought some of you dog lovers might enjoy. It’s The Secrets Inside Your Dog’s Mind. It doesn’t actually tell you what your dog is secretly thinking, which in my opinion is just as well. I’m pretty sure Maggie’s mind mostly revolves around food, getting her ears scratched and thinking she should probably sniff and/or lick her butt again.
Check out the article if you’ve got some time and the inclination. Should be interesting to see the results of the studies they are planning. I always find evolutionary biology fascinating. Conclusions are generally speculative, I think, but fun to consider all the same.
Oh, and if understanding a person pointing comes naturally to a dog, why the heck can’t I get Maggie to really understand it? She kind of half way gets it. I must be doing something wrong.
