    I am pretty sure this is not the place where you want to be 'joking' - or "just kidding mostly" - about beating dogs with a belt...

    I buy the separation anxiety idea rather than boredom. A dog can lie around the house doing nothing and if it's owner is home it doesn't tear up stuff. Dogs are about as social an animal as there is on this planet.* Maybe people who don't work or travel should be the only ones who should have dogs. I understand the impulse to take dogs places they don't belong, for the dog's sake, not the owner's.

    *Acccording to a friend who has one to guard his horse, Anatolian shepherds don't care for people but prefer the company of farm animals. Their job is to kill wolves, although coyotes will do in a pinch.

    I was listening to an NPR piece about dog eyebrows. Dogs have a muscle that raises the inner sides of their eyebrows, which helps them look up at their owners and also gives them an appearance appealing to humans--big eyes, which is what makes babies cute.. Wolves (and huskies) lack that muscle.

    Fascinating stuff. I wonder if that NPR piece had to do with this study since Ars also just did an article about it:
