A few months ago, Scientific American published an article titled, "Your Dog May Not Be A Genius After All." The article went viral on Twitter, with thousands of people having an intense emotional reaction to the headline. Most everyone had a humorous reaction, but the feeling behind it was almost one of betrayal.
For this episode of the Individual Animal podcast, Arin Greenwood joins us to discuss why people had this reaction, what our own dogs mean to us and whether or not we think they are intelligent. We discovered that one of Nikki's dogs can sing. Regina's dog is a jerk. Arin's dog is lazy and forgetful.
