So, momma was reading this article to the daddy.
She does that when she wants to drive a point "home". Not sure what her point was, I mean daddy gets us. He really gets us. But something prompted her to do it, so we all listened.
Can I preface my comments with one statement?
Hellllloooo calling Captain Obvious.....you are all allocating funds to study the obvious????
I will never get some Hoomans! If you have questions about what we are thinking, JUST ASK.
If you are not dog fluent get hold of auntie Robin at TBFR, or get a hold of momma, or auntie Janet or auntie Crissie, or auntie Kathy, or uncle Bob... heyyy... I could give you a full list, just call me!
You could allocate the money you save toward something .... needed like no kill shelters! I am just saying.
Here is the article:
Momma did not give us an opportunity to make comments when she was reading this, so I am sharing my thoughts here. No, we will not discuss what JD said because that potty mouthed boy had some very ehmmmm choice words. And he cited another article to justify his usage of such language http://www.everydayhealth.com/pain-management-pictures/6-surprising-ways-to-cope-with-pain.aspx... but that's a different post.
So, the articled stated that:
" It turns out that dogs rely on humans more than they do their own kind for affection, protection and everything in between."
DUHHHHHH. To quote GAGA- I was born this way! It is my genetic evolution. I am the result of thousand of years of breeding. You think this cuteness just happens? I am fluffly, cute, soft, and smell like a cupcake because I was bred to be pleasing to you so we can share affection and protection and everything in between!
Don't you just want to hold me????
"The scientists found that dog owners’ aroma actually sparked activation in the “reward center” of their brains, called the caudate nucleus. Of all the wafting smells to take in, dogs actually prioritized the hint of humans over anything or anyone else."
Sooooo, I am basically hopelessly addicted to you? Oh. And here I thought I was addicted to Capricci.
"Researchers found that happy sounds in particular light up the auditory cortex in both species. This commonality speaks to the uniquely strong communication system underlying the dog-human bond.
In short: Dogs don’t just seem to pick up on our subtle mood changes — they are actually physically wired to pick up on them."
Ok, This comment is for my DD [Daddy dearest]... I bet right about now you wish you had some dog genes in you! Snicker snicker snicker... Would make life easier if you could only have a built in clue phone...Oh Adammm it would take more than a few genes....But you are tuned to MOI, so all is well.
" According to Andics, dogs interact with their human caregivers in the same way babies do their parents. When dogs are scared or worried, they run to their owners, just as distressed toddlers make a beeline for their parents. This is in stark contrast to other domesticated animals: Petrified cats, as well as horses, will run away."
The Wendy proved all this at the eye dr. Passed over the daddy, the Dowi... straight into momma's arms. That is NORMAL. MOMMA is MOMMA. I am confused as to why that thought this was newsworthy... DUHHHH. As far as cats... they are CATS!
"Dogs are also the only non-primate animal to look people in the eyes."
First of all, you communicate well through your eyes. Second... you all freak out if we try and sniff your butt.
Now, momma, how about a quick belly scratch before the chores of the day steal you from me????
It is MONDAYYYY and I am on Hanukkah countdown.
