A dog is a man’s best friend, so the old saying goes, but did you know that humans are a dog’s best friend too?
A new study, conducted by psychologists at Harvard, claims that when your dog is sleeping they’re thinking about you and you only.
So after a long hard day of moping about, chasing after sticks, and gouging down a kilo of dog food, when your pet finally doses off they’ve got their owner in mind, reports the Daily Mail.
Dr Deirdre Barrett, a clinical and evolutionary psychologist at Harvard Medical School explained that alike humans, dogs dream of things that have happened to them throughout their days – and since your probably the most prominent feature in your dog’s life, they’re most likely dreaming of you.
Since dogs are generally extremely attached to their human owners, it’s likely your dog is dreaming of your face, your smell and of pleasing or annoying you.Advertisement
What probably wont come as much of a surprise to you is that your cat isn’t dreaming about you because cats really don’t give a shit. Instead, your cats probably dreaming about catching mice, according to Deirdre.
Cats lay quietly through the other stages of sleep, and when REM began, they leapt up, stalked, pounced, arched their backs and hissed.Advertisement
They looked like they were hunting mice in their dreams.
I guess that’s just more reason to be a dog lover than a cat person…
