Thursdog: Dogs think you are important, and are also into swimming and skateboarding

Thursdog: Dogs think you are important, and are also into swimming and skateboarding October 16, 2014

At NonProphet Status, we love dogs. We love dogs a lot. We love their faces and their fur and the way their stupid little noses sniff and bury into everything. They’re like cats, but with personality and for people who can handle responsibilities.

Big dogs, little dogs, short hair, long hair. It really doesn’t matter. We’re just really into dogs, and have accordingly assembled a list of dog-related links. Send your dog-related links to @npsblog.

—1. This dog is, like, super serious about getting to the ocean—

—2. College campuses are full of longboarders who are not nearly as skilled as this dog—

—3. Dogs may love us as much as we love them—

Or maybe it’s the treats we give them. But research shows that dogs have stronger positive expectations when presented with the scent of a familiar human than when they are presented with the scent of familiar dogs. The researchers say this speaks to the importance of humans in domestic dogs’ lives. In other words: your dog may be a human-animal in the same way that you are a dog person.

—4. We usually don’t post memes but this dog is Vlad with glasses—
