Interesting Animal - Dogs

Dogs are capable of feeling jealous.

(For a long time, scientists have argued that emotions like jealousy and guilt require a sophisticated understanding of the self and of other's social goals and desires, and are therefore the province of humans only, but it now it looks as if what every dog owner has known all along, could be scientifically proven .

Christine R. Harris and Caroline Prouvost of the University of California, have adapted an experiment, initially designed for babies, where dog owners were asked to interact with different object, one of them being a stuffed toy dog; the researchers found that the dogs were much more likely to show jealousy: aggression – snapping, getting between the owner and the object, and pushing the object away – for the stuffed dog.

Laika would like to do the same to my computer.)
