B.J. here with an observation. Charlie Bear seems to know when I need some comfort. He runs and jumps up to be with Roger all the time, so when he snuggles up next to me it’s truly precious.
There are experts who think that dogs comfort distressed humans and that it’s hardwired into a dog’s brain. Dogs may empathize with humans more than any other animal, including humans themselves, several new studies suggest. The latest research, published in the journal Animal Cognition, found that pet dogs may truly be man (or woman’s) best friend if a person is in distress.
How does your dog comfort you?
Best wishes for a great weekend,
