Some people tell me that I anthropomorphize when it comes to my dogs – simply that means to give them human attributes. Well the studies are in and I have been right all along. There are several human-like emotions that dogs actually experience. Just witness my 6 Dachshunds all trying get a hug from me at the same time and growling at the one getting the most – that would be jealousy BTW. Take a look at this article and you can learn more about how they love you, people watch and process speech, just to name a few. Speaking of speech, did you know dogs can recognize about 165 words? I guess that’s for another post.
