Your Daily Doggies

Adorable story on yahoo news today. Researchers found that people with empathy are likely to yawn when someone else yawns. They found that Doggies were five times more likely to yawn if their owner just yawned than if a stranger just yawned.  Therefore, by the transitive property, doggies are just as empathetic as people.  I heart doggies.  Here is Jane Doe yawning:


She is so cute.

In other Corgi news, Sutter Brown — Governor Jerry Brown’s Corig–got his own feature on Buzz Feed recognizing his great contributions to Public Service and the State of California. Sutter Brown is not as cute as Jane Doe, but it is always great to see Corgis being publicly recognized for their good work.  If you do not know, Sutter Brown has his own page on the California Governor’s Website (his office is listed as “First Dog”), twitter and facebook. Jane Doe is too busy looking for food to deal with facebook and twitter.  I suspect if she tweeted it would be “bring me steak xoxo.” It should be noted that the media is terribly breedist when it comes to dogs. There are always cute corgi stories in the news and ones about how pitbulls killed children or were victims of a dog fighting ring.  Never cute pitbull stories.  Pitbulls are loveable cute doggies too it’s a shame they get such a bad rap because of a few irresponsible owners!


Sutter Brown Charming the Media. Better than Clinton.
