Good Dog Helps Kitty By Removing Cup From Her Face — 2 Comments

  1. In my opinion, the dog had nothing to gain by removing the cup. I think that the dog saw that the cat had a problem, and knew exactly what to do.

    Dogs have been known to help other animals in trouble, and maybe certain breeds are more prone to it.

  2. I think the fact that we have to ask this question is an indication that there’s pressure by others to err on the side of denying the dog is doing something nice. Since when? “Dog” people have no problem lauding dog as human as possible when it comes to helping us, but when they help a cat it’s something else? Please, I can see what’s at work here: reverse anthropomorphic bias.

    As to what’s in the dog’s mind, I think it’s a bit of both. Why can’t that be?
