All of us who love our dogs wonder: what are they really thinking? Well, there is now some scientific proof that our dogs may not only understand us, but love us back too. Dr. Greg Berns taught his dog Callie to sit perfectly still for a series of MRI's, and he took pictures of her brain as he showed her hand signals she had already learned. For example he gave her a hand signal of 'you're about to get a hot dog soon' or 'no hot dog'. After the 'no hot dog' signal, her brain was quiet, but it lit up when she saw the signal for the treat in an area of the brain that processes feelings of reward. For the first time, researchers say this is scientific proof dogs are capable of more complex communication and not just with a few signals, but potentially an entire sign language. The brain scans also suggest that dogs not only think, they also love.
