Last week, we received an awesome surprise (well, Mia received the surprise first because she has a smartphone). Bora Zivkovic, Blog Editor at Scientific American,
named Do You Believe in Dog? Blog of the Week!
BLOG OF THE WEEK!
This brought our excitement level to a new high of 167% because it's great to see that others are on board and enjoying our pen pal ways.
Scientific American bloggers are no strangers to canine science research, and here is some of their coverage:
- Jesse Bering: Cur cognition: Do stray dogs have qualitatively different kinds of canine minds?
(Bering also recently published, Why Is the Penis Shaped Like That? but that might be a topic for a different Blog)
- Carina Storrs: Best in show: Scientists pursue selected gene mutations bred into dogs
- Christie Wilcox: Evolution: The curious case of dogs
- Larry Greenemeier What can a three-legged dog teach robots about resilience?
Jason Goldman, a doctoral student in Developmental Psychology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, is often considering dogs:
- Dogs, but not wolves, use humans as tools
- Contagious yawning: Evidence of empathy?
- Animal imagination: The dog that pretended to feed a frog (and other tales)
- And Jason recently covered Julie’s research on the “guilty look” in dogs (thank you!) Do dogs feel guilty?
- Mia is very happy to discuss her research with you Jason - any time you like ;)
Scientific American is a great resource to consult when considering the dog, and we're looking forward to adding to the canine science conversation.
Thanks for joining us!
