Yeah, I really don't agree with any science that claims dogs aren't as complex as they are. I've known many dogs who have proven that wrong in my
"I can make a reference, all animals have two feelings nothing more.."
My little Sweet Pea disproves this line all of the time. You definitely know when she's happy. She smiles, wags her tail, and if she's really happy
she runs around like crazy. If you've been gone all day and she misses you, she nibbles your hand when you pet her. When she's sad, she has
different body language than when she did something bad and is worried about getting in trouble. When she's sad, her tail stays up but she gives
really cute doe eyes. Her fur actually changes, too. When she's happy, her fur is crazy and poofy. When she's sad, if you brush her fur down, it
stays. It's how we know she's being as we call "tender". When she's worried about being in trouble, or as many call the feeling of "guilt", her
tail is tucked, back arched, and she plops down near our feet. It's different than when she's sad.
Our dog even knows when we're talking smack about her. If we're joking around, talking smack about her, mocking her, etc......she starts growling and
kicking dirt at us. Even though she has a happy energy when she does it, it definitely feels like she's annoyed at us and telling us to stfu. lol
It's stuff like that why I can't believe dogs only have two feelings, and nothing more. I've even had arguments with my dog. One time it was raining
really bad, but she had to go potty before bed. So while we were outside, she kept sitting by my feet and looking up to tell me she wanted to go in.
I kept telling her "No, you have to go potty!", and she would just bark at me. Sure, she was happy, but she had the same energy she does when we talk
smack. I've even had her do the doggy equivalent of rolling her eyes at me and walk out the room, all because I put my face close to hers and kept
making silly sounds. XD
