Sometimes I wonder about my human's choices of reading material.
For example, there is clearly only one possible answer to the question posed in the title of the book pictured here...
... And it's a one word answer at that.
Quite how Professor de Waal spun it out to 300 pages beats me.
Disappointingly, most of the book concerns the antics of assorted primate species, plus the occasional corvid and cetacean. But us canines do get a look in when it comes to the topic of undertaking functional magnetic resonance imaging studies on animal brains.
Apparently it is not so easy to train a chimp to sit still while conscious inside a noisy MRI scanning machine. Dogs do better, although having read that treats are not forthcoming for the duration of the actual scan (something to do with jaw movements making the picture of the brain too blurry) my interest in volunteering for this particular area of scientific research has lessened somewhat.
