Dogs Are People Too

The New York Times on Sunday posted a very interesting article regarding research on dog’s brains. This was the first time an MRI was performed on a fully alert dog and the results were very interesting.

We would love to see more of this type of research especially around dog dreaming as it’s always looked very clear that dogs are running or chasing things while asleep. Hopefully this will lead to improved treatment by humans of our 4 legged friends.
