A Big Yawn


So Pablo and I are not as deeply bonded as I’d thought. Sob. According to a recent NY Times article on canine intelligence, one way to test if you and your dog are strongly bonded is to yawn and see if your dog reciprocates. Well, I’ve yawned until my lips ache and Pablo just looks at me as if to say, “What is that crazy person doing?”

Above is a shot of Pablo yawning–just to show that he does know how!

  1. How about the pointing test. Can he do that?

  2. No, cats don’t take cues from humans. Out of habit, I point to kibble pieces on the floor to Rita and she ignores me and them. Pablo? He gobbles them up.
