Grumpy Dogs Outperform Friendly Dogs On Some Learning Tests

Potential dog adopters may want to consider the attributes they value in doggos. The New York Times recently reported that 'In a recent study in Hungary, researchers found that dogs with personality characteristics they had grouped under the "grumpy" heading were better able to learn from a stranger than more easygoing dogs…This is admittedly a limited skill, but owners of grumpy dogs may be pleased with good news of any sort." We have heard of grumpy cats being underappreciated, now grumpy dogs??

Owners of grumpy dogs rejoice! You may have always understood your dog's worth and value, but not everyone else did and that has always bothered you. Now you have real scientific evidence that your dogs are the best! Take that- happy dog owners. Jk. We love happy dogs too. All dogs really.

Goats Are Able To Understand Human Facial Expressions

According to a recent study, goats are more intelligent than people previously thought. Goats have the ability to understand human expressions. They can tell the difference between unhappy faces and smiling ones and are attracted to the latter. 

Pretty wild, huh? 

How was the study conducted, you might ask. Researchers went to a goat sanctuary, and they showed goats a pair of photos — one with a happy face and the other with an angry expression. They were surprised to find that ALL the goats were drawn to the happy face. 

Honestly, the fact that Goats like you more when you're happy sounds like a good enough reason to smile.
