Just what are dogs thinking? A new study shows dogs respond like humans to certain pleasures.

What dogs think and feel has been an age-old debate. But now there’s more concrete proof a dog’s brain responds to certain pleasures the same way a human brain does, like food and smells.

The New York Times published a study by a neuroscientist who was able to use an MRI to scan the brains of several dogs. It details interesting responses in brain activity and what those responses mean. A very cool read!
