You all know how I feel about humans’ studying dogs. They know nothing about us. In fact, we are your angels, and you should never question your angels, just accept that we are here to do go for you and be happy about it. But not humans, they have to question every single thing.
Their question now is do dogs get jealous? Um…..If we are on a walk in the forest do we $hit it the woods?
When Mommy and Daddy kissed I would sit at their feet and growl louder and louder. After awhile the only time they kissed was to make me bark. Frankly I think I saved their marriage.
I wonder who is funding these dogs studies. Like all scientific studies I am sure it costs thousands of dollars. The scientists would have been much better served by adopting two dogs and then watching them interact when one gets attention and the other doesn’t.
Pocket and I used to snap and growl at one another when Mommy gave either of us attention. And I watch River and Pocket fight over the Mommy’s lap. If one of them is being held the other is barking for attention. If one gets a treat the other is looking with sorrowful eyes wondering where there treat is.
And those of us who read Hattie Mae’s blog know how much we hate when our owners come home smelling like other dogs. That can put us in a snit for weeks.
My favorite way of showing how jealousy upset me was to not eat. I was such a tiny thing not eating could have had disastrous results. I was hungry but it was worth it to see how upset my parents were.
If you know any scientists who wants to study dogs please just point them to the nearest shelter. They will save a lot of money, save a life, and learn lots about dogs.
