How Do Dogs REALLY Feel About Us?

have you ever wondered?

This study finally lets you know the answer.  Apparently scientists have studied dog brains with MRIs to see how they really feel about us.  Most of us would think that when dogs wag their tails it means they are happy and if they growl they are irritated.  This study though tells us for sure what is going on:

In the 30,000 years humans and dogs have lived together, man’s best friend has only become a more popular and beloved pet. Today, dogs are a fixture in almost 50% of American households.

From the way dogs thump their tails, invade our laps and steal our pillows, it certainly seems like they love us back. But since dogs can’t tell us what’s going on inside their furry heads, can we ever be sure?

As a pet owner or appreciator you will likely find these results encouraging.  It seems intuitive and these tests are nice to hear:

Actually, yes. Thanks to recent developments in brain imaging technology, we’re starting to get a better picture of the happenings inside the canine cranium.

That’s right — scientists are actually studying the dog brains. And what the studies show is welcome news for all dog owners: Not only do dogs seem to love us back, they actually see us as their family. It turns out that dogs rely on humans more than they do their own kind for affection, protection and everything in between.

Wow that is pretty major.  This would show that dogs and people really are best friends.  So you can rest assured if you are good to your pets they indeed are sincerely being good to you.

Thanks to the team for the study.
