Nogale: uttertosh: Denver sure does

I howled with laughter the first time I saw that video.

I just showed it to my motherinlaw who owns a golden lab/border collie mix.... while she was drinking coffee. She owes me a new keyboard. [/motherinlaw-spitnotswallow-joke]

holdmybones: Sure, for exactly 30 seconds.

Wow - got 30% into the thread before this. I was beginning to think I'd have to post it myself.

Cats are also bad, though they might not care about being shamed.

I carry a lot of guilt around, and none of it affects my pack membership.

That's because you can keep it to yourself, a benefit of the big human forebrain.

It's not that humans aren't smarter than dogs (usually), just that dogs also have many of the same emotions and basic social mechanisms we do.

Cockroaches feeling guilt would surprise me.
