Babies understand dogs

Dog: "I would loooove to eat you right now"

New research shows babies have a handle on the meaning of different dog barks – despite little or no previous exposure to dogs.

Infants just 6 months old can match the sounds of an angry snarl and a friendly yap to photos of dogs displaying threatening and welcoming body language.

Maybe it is because I was raised by a pack of wolves but I too can speak the language of dogs.  Now I realize just how much I have in common with babies.  Too little too late, as if I had known information from important studies like this earlier I may have been able to avoid a few trips to the clinic with lady friends.
