Do Dogs Have Emotions?

    I found this article interesting, and thought I would share.
    But now, by using the M.R.I. to push away the limitations of behaviorism, we can no longer hide from the evidence. Dogs, and probably many other animals (especially our closest primate relatives), seem to have emotions just like us. And this means we must reconsider their treatment as property.

    I swear I searched for the title and "emotions." I also poked around "articles." Sorry.

    @603shiba...I started the "dogs as persons" thread and should have included 'emotions' in the title somehow, to make the search easier. Sorry about that!

    But glad to see the interest...I'm amazed by the recent MRI research!

    Since this is a duplicate discussion, I'll go ahead and close this thread.
    Good idea to include 'emotions' in the title, @Kobe1468. Will go ahead and include that keyword in the title.
