Default For All Us Dog 'Shrinks'

An interesting study into the minds of canines.

"According to a study published today in the journal PLOS ONE, wolves appear to be more inclined than dogs to be generous with their pack mates. When given the choice, wolves deliver food to their friends, even if they donít benefit themselves. Dogs, on the other hand, quickly lose interest in the absence of personal payoff."

Interesting study. I wonder what the results would have been if they used poodles.

Gracie will allow other dogs to eat from her bowl but would never take food to them.

Our weimaraner used to gather kibble from the bowl and bring it to our other dog. Then they shared the kibble. When it was gone, April went back to the bowl and brought out some more for them to share. That's how they ate every meal for years. It was really cute. I think I have a video of it somewhere. Man, I miss that dog.

Bug has brought me food (and the dead rats he's caught). I guess he really is a tiny, curly coated wolf. He even howls.

he does not share with other dogs, though.

I had a feral cat that used to drop dead bunnies at my feet. I really wasnít cut out for that kind of country life.

Tilly-cat will share prey she has caught with the dogs, mainly I think because she is not particularly hungry and the maternal instinct kicks in - she gives the little chirping call a mother cat uses to her kittens. The dogs have no concept of sharing their own food with each other, but expect humans to offer some of what they are eating, unless the humans are properly sat down to a meal when they (usually) remember that they have been taught to wait politely for their taste in the kitchen. I don't think altruism figures very highly in their mental processes - they have a well defined sense o fairness, but that is more about ensuring they get at least their rightful share than concern that one of the others is not getting enough!

I haven't read the article yet...will later...looks interesting but gotta run. But I'm guessing it's because that trait of selfishness is due to evolution. Dogs are also neotenic versions of wolves. So juveniles are self centered. lol. Dogs also don't need to share to survive. Wolves do. Or they'll go extinct.

Okay, read that article. Very interesting. Thanks for posting. I think I'm going to give this more thought in the coming days. I think evolution where dogs are concerned especially, is so fascinating. And how it's shaped us all over the years.

My mind was a little boggled too at the end. Thinking back to pre-history AND forward into the future. I should have gone into animal psychology back in the '70s. lol
