Dog Brains Link Pleasure With Owner’s Scent

There has been an explosion of research on the canine mind lately and I’m loving it!  I always thought the concept of animals as emotionless automatons was suspect. It makes much more sense to me that many, if not most, animals are creatures of emotion and sophisticated scientific studies are bearing this out. I get the impulse to avoid anthropomorphism but I think we went too far with it in the past. It’s great to see solid evidence of the human-animal bond.
