    [QUOTE=Markus Hanke;577898][QUOTE=CJPote;577887]

    Thank you for your feedback. It was more sober and rigorous analysis than my "pet theory" deserved. I probably should have kept it shorter, too. Something more along the lines of, "My theory is that gluons and photons only have two spatial dimensions and one temporal one, while all other particles have three spatial and two temporal dimensions. That would have interesting implications." Instead I belabored my point with BS rationalizations.
    Thanks again for your time and consideration.

    I call it the "Watch Dog Effect". I have noticed that Dogs ( the species I have observed at least two very small dogs so that may have some criteria to this affect) like to be near the entrance to wherever they are. For example in a bedroom the dog will be by the door. If all doors in the house are open dogs stay where they have the most vision of entrances to their current location. In my house it is a flat spot between the upstairs and downstairs. If the dogs are upstairs they always sit right next to the stairs. If in a room with door open they are always by the door, but if the door is closed they are often not.
    When my pet (dog) does that I always assume that he's trying to get me to follow him out of the room / house. He's much happier when we're outside together!

    Well when, my pet, my Spousy acts badly, he is reprimanded. He doesn't always respond well, but he definitely knows the Queen isn't happy.

    ~ As a observation of some years of building,. Dogs long for your attention.
    They want you to be pleased with them. To play, to be as a servant.. You are the master they wish to impress.
    While the cat owner never does share the cats pleasure.. You are tolerated and rewarded with attention only when it pleases the cat..
    Like was said.. "Scratch my tummy, ~ Ok that's enough, I now wish to sleep.. touch me again and there will be consequences.."
    As a child in China we had horses for working the fields.. kind of primitive and yet rewarding.. Some of the Horses were personalities.. I had a few pets..
    ~ As a personal theory.. I often think Dolphins might make a lifetime companions.. I have spent long periods at sea.. and imagined some of those Dolphins traveled with us for days. Watching.. learning.. and welcomed us every morning.. with laughter.
    ( Yea Dolphins laurph, but I feel at us.. )

    My pet theory mirrors an hypothesis put forward by one of Canada's premiere scientists. He questions whether or not domestication of several animal species was in fact initiated by the animals as an evolutionary strategy of advantage. Rather than compete with us, several species have learned to co-operate with us, which gives these species a preferential edge over others as humans continue to usurp habitat and resources for their own uses. Humans, of course, are of the opinion that we have selected and selectively bred these species and there is no doubt that we have greatly accelerated the process but the initial step could very well have been at the initiation of the more curious and bold among the animals.

    Horses, dogs and cats do indeed demonstrate significant individual variance in their interactions with us and clearly indicate a preference for some human personalities over others, which I find very interesting. They are far more clever than many of us would believe.
