My dog has several very communicative facial expressions, including "Hey! Not fair!," "You want me to do WHAT?!?" and "It's so hard to find good help these days." Like those dramatic faces 4th grade girls make: compared to him the dog in the article is poker-faced. He can also consciously communicate with his tail movements and body postures.

You can literally watch him think too. E.g., he'll "say" something, see that I didn't get it, sit down to think a minute, then try it again another way. He's also taught us to say "Show me?" so he'll lead us to what he's "talking" about. Sometimes he has to work at it: "There, that drawer. Right. No not that. Not that either. Oh just put the drawer down on the floor and I'll get it myself."

Picture a furry four-footed mime playing to an unsophisticated audience.

CeroX: Dogs have eyebrows... you can tell a lot about what something is thinking by their eyebrows... cats just have this shiat above their eyes

Studies show scientists prefer ripping off George Carlin routines over coming up with original ideas.
