    I didn't see this on TV but watched it on line...so many "experts" with so many different opinions. Of cause our dogs love us and I don't need a uni degree to know that.

    Yes exactly what I was thinking. How to measure 'love'

    I also found interesting how people immediately assume 'unconditional love' when talking about this topic. I haven't met many humans with that ability but for some reason it seems to be a fair threshold for dogs.

    Yes they could have had the same show about whether humans can love... ie what is love, what does that mean... is the dog only motivated by self interest or does it care about you and your best interests (as decided by a dog eg you need your shoe now right? you'd love some pre chewed food? yes?

    I don't know why that guy had a shirt on his dog...a little weird. I treat my dogs like kids but I don't dress them like kids.

    I did agree on one thing...very intelligent dogs are harder to train with some things...aren't you Chloe.
