Check out this article, "WHAT DOES FIDO KNOW? Intelligence of dogs gives pause to animal scientist" about the guy who wrote If Dogs Could Talk: Exploring the Canine Mind
The scientist posits that dogs are carefully evolved human assistants who have evolved to think in ways that complement and parallel our thinking. He also concludes that dogs are not only able to make us think they understand us, but also know how to make us understand them.
As I read this article I wondered how the Three Schippeteers fit into these theories, especially that last part about them getting us to understand them ... in order to manipulate us better? Just then I heard my dear hubby addressing Air Jordan with the utmost understanding:
"Yeah, as if you weren't just eating all those crackers I gave to the bunnies. Right!"
