Canine Cognition

What Your Dog Is Thinking on Time.com; interesting summary of some recent research into the dog mind. All of our dogs can master a large vocabulary, not just that one exceptional border collie. All our dogs can count. They can even use computer touch screens. It's not all "Feed me! Feed me! Walk me! Scratch my belly! Feed me!" I wonder how philosophical they get?

DoodleBug prefers to just rest his head on the laptop, imploring me with those big brown eyes to stop working and have fun. I'm glad, because I'd be worried about what web sites he'd want to surf. dogshaming, for sure. Mr. Big would enjoy the food websites.

Stripey Cat thinks computers are beneath her.
