dear doc based on my experiences dogs relates to people mostly the same way they approach other dogs. whats the first thing a dog does to another dog? sniff. whats the first thing a dog does to a person? sniff. you got it. being social animals they follow instinct and rituals. all of which i have seen them do to other dogs and people. before you go all professor on me, i do acknowledge that there is not the same behavior always, but whatever difference, is always LEARNED. so go ahead and be 3 years old and roll arounf on the floor and laugh. secondly i never said anything about wolf studies. stop talking for me. ok, Doc?
