    It’s great to have research support what we dog lovers have “known” for a very long time.

    I love this research project. I have believed the theory since I have owned and loved my dogs throughout my life.

    This is rich! I have been one of those who just identify deeply with animals and their feelings. I never questioned the fact that they had feelings just like I did but the reigning psychology has always been that they were just animals with no emotions.
    We were told that they only wanted food and the reason they licked us was because they liked the taste of salt on our skin. I really wondered about the sanity of a scientist that could come up with such findings. Glad to see that someone is taking another look.
    How on earth could anyone come home from work and not see the sheer joy on the face of their dog? Oh, I forgot, they are just hungry!

    I wonder how much this study cost?

    Maybe these studies and their findings along with others will put an end to KILL SHELTERS and animal cruelty!!! I’ve always said if they don’t believe in doing that to children, then why animals? It needs to stop. We have to find a way to end it. It’s so heartbreaking. I can’t believe it even takes studies to prove these things. I mean, how could anyone hurt an animal? They are the most precious cuties ever.
