    "In 2014, 60 Minutes first attempted to answer the age-old question: does your dog really love you?"



    (It's positively offensive to hear these ridiculous "scientific" opinions about what we are supposedly just learning about how smart and empathic animals are.
    Animal lovers have always known far more about animals than modern "science".
    In any case, I find it to be much more revealing when cats and dogs who have learned to communicate by pressing buttons which represent certain objects or actions, requests, etc. are allowed to communicate with their owners at will during the regular course of a day.
    That's an entirely different situation than a forced "test". )

    But then there's this (thanks to RunningDeer in a recent post) :



    (Coincidentally, I just finished reading a funny novel (very light fiction) which features an exceptionally smart dog whose owner had been teaching him words and concepts for years, called "Lessons in Chemistry".
    [Or is it just that the dog owner is especially smart by understanding the capabilities of dogs?
    See: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/...s-in-chemistry
    ... Though I only recommend it to feminist dog lovers].

    Just another in a line of amazing synchronicities I've been experiencing in reading material I seem to happen upon by chance, which correspond precisely to subject matter I've simultaneously been contemplating....

    “This 3 month old cub and his sibling were in a tree. The other lionesses were in other trees and on the ground. He wanted to get down and walked all over the branches looking for the right spot and finally just went for it. It was probably his first time in a tree and his descent didn't go so well. He was just fine though after landing on the ground. He got up and ran off with some other cubs.”

    I CU boy !
    “Few hundred miles away we went to explore wildlife of a small town named ‘Bikaner’. It was after almost a year I travelled because of covid. We hired a guide to explore places around. During last day of our trip we came across a pipe in a city where we spotted an owlet. I have earlier clicked owls in a pipe before so I was sure that I wasn’t mistake. We waited for a short while and it didn’t take a long time and one of the spotted owlet came out of the pipe. It was really funny when he came out and looked at me straight, before going inside he closed one of his eyes and felt like he wanted to say I CU boy ! and I immediately snapped a picture when he gave this pose."

    “Apart from its beauty, Cape Hillsborough is renowned for its resident kangaroos and wallabies.
