Scientists may have pushed that idea but any one that had a dog or cat and many other animals for pets knew different. I'm 61 years old and knew this cense I can remember.

I've given this a bit more thought, and I'm pretty sure the animals-have-no-emotions line of thinking has been abandoned because we've learned a lot more about animal's brains over the past three decades. Surprise, surprise: The more we learn about animals' brains, the more we learn they have regions of the brains that handle emotions in ways similar to ours. Ergo, there's an excellent chance many of these animals are experiencing emotions similar to ours. One example would be the crow. In the 1970s, scientists didn't understand large regions of the crows brain and wrote the birds off as, well, birdbrains. With the development of the MRI, radionuclide scans, and other technologies, zoologists now understand that corvids brains are highly developed, giving the animals excellent memories, reasoning skills, and the ability to experience excitement, regret, curiosity, and anger. The birds are now recognized as being so smart, they are sometimes referred to as "feathered primates."

The best part was watching the dog's tail wag as he went down the slide. Pure joy! .... By the way, does anyone notice the change in tone in how animals are regarded nowadays, especially by scientists? What I mean is this: 30 years ago or so, every scientist or animal behaviorist out there seemed to be insisting that animals don't experience emotions like we do and that describing an animal as, say, "happy" or "jealous" was anthropomorphosizing it--erroneously interpreting biological or evolutionary responses as a human emotions. Am I wrong, or has that trend among scientist waned over the years? It stuck me as bullshit back then and I'm glad if that no-emotions-in-animals viewpoint has been discredited. It seems to me it was a convenient rationalization for not caring more about a lot of animal cruelty. .... Thoughts on this, anyone?

It's been years since I been on a big slide like that, but they use to give everyone mats to sit on. Watching this I wonder how the dogs feet held up from the repeated slides.
