    dog gets into chair and the master and guest both comment on the self satisfied look on dogs face….

    ok, I’m just going to go with what i said in t’other thread…since we are humans and can only think in human terms…I will say yes, a dog is capable of “looking” smug. Whether they are smug is another question that probably can’t be answered.  These are quite difficult , perhaps impossible questions and situations doncha think?

    You need to model yourself on the White Queen in ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Nick: “Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”  ;D

    hehe 🙂

    I think dogs can definately look smug, cross, guilty … and all the other emotional labels we give them … i dont think it makes alot of difference what we say they “look like” personally as long as you remember that clearly they aint – they’re dogs, not people !!!

    hmmm i wonder if dogs have pre-cognition … i wonder if anyone has done the testing … probably not these days but I bet Burrhaus and Ivan would have 😉

    ya, I can’t wait until some bullsh#t scientist with a big research grant  tries to convince everyone that they’ve decoded, translated barks, whimpers, yelps and all those other endearing noises are pups make.

    Nick – look at the work of Turid Rugaas she has done alot on wild wolf pack communication

    also Gardner & Gardner, Terrace etc… and their work on primates (because they did have huge research grants).  I know its not dogs but I have done a paper on the primate studies 🙂
