– [Man] What if I told you dogs
don’t care about us at all? – That would make me so sad. What? (upbeat music) – Before I got Murphy, I
talked about getting a dog for two years straight. – I decided to just walk into
the animal shelter one day. – Louis was the only one next to the mom so I could tell he was the
youngest and the shyest. – And within five minutes we saw Marty and we signed the papers. – I think I remember one
time I just had a breakdown and she just walked
over and kissed my face and I was like, “You know, this is okay.” (laughs) – We call him the joy of our lives. – I was in a wheel chair for a little bit and having her sit with
me in my bed every day when I was in recovery
was the greatest comfort. – Everyone I was really close with started moving away one by one. I never had a chance to be really lonely because I always had Louis with me. – [Man] So would you say
that you love Murphy? – Yeah. – Yes. I love Ella. – [Man] And do you feel
like Ella loves you? – Yeah definitely. – I think Louis loves me, yeah. – [Man] What if I told
you that there was a lot of scientific thought that dogs don’t actually care about us at all? – Uh. – What? What are the details? – [Man] Well we can get to those. (upbeat music) – They’re little bone shaped. Bad news comes in cute
packages, apparently. (laughs) – So it says in the 19th century, naturalist Charles
Darwin traveled the world on the HMS Beagle,
leading to the formulation of his theory of evolution. – Darwin leader wrote
extensively about the possibility that dogs have rich emotional
lives, but couldn’t prove it. – The true modern era
of dog research began with scientist, Ivan Pavlov. Pavlov is most famous for his discovery that dogs who had heard a
bell and were given food eventually began to salivate
merely at the sound of the bell even when no food was present. – This gave rise to behaviorism – And the belief among
the scientific community that dogs are merely robotic creatures – Who give us affection
not because they love us but because they know it will
lead us to giving them food. – Marty, do you love me? Looks away. – And so for a century, this view held. Dogs were not our best friends, they were just what one
science writer called, “Con artist at the very
top of profession.” Simply put, dogs did not
and could not love us. That makes me really sad
because I love you so much. – Murphy you’re a liar? – I’m hoping this is not true though. – I feel like something is coming. (upbeat music) (clicks) – Hi this is Dr. Gregory
Berns, I’m a neuroscientist in Atlanta, Georgia and
I always wanted to know whether dogs love us like
the way we love them. But of course they can’t tell us so I had to figure out a
different way to do it. I used MRI and trained
my dog to go in an MRI so I could look at her brain
and see what she’s thinking and feeling while she interacted with me. And pretty soon we had a group
of a dozen dogs doing MRI’s. And one of the things that we found was that the reward
center of a dog’s brain responds to the sound of the human’s voice praising them as much and in many cases more than food itself. And what this shows is
that dogs really do care about the social bond as much and in many cases more than
just the provision of food. I think like many dog owners realize is that they’re amazing
creatures with kind of the depth of emotion that goes beyond what scientists used to think in that they are very
much capable of love. It’s certainly in their
way and very much like we humans love each other too. – Awe. I’m gonna cry. – Oh. You do love me Murph? – Marty, did you hear that? – That makes me really happy. – I feel like I can
sort of more freely say that she is also my best friend now. I’m sorry boyfriend but
my best friend’s my dog. (laughing) – I’m really glad that
our feelings are mutual and I hope Louis loves me forever. (happy music plays) (whooshing)

(My aunt feeds two fully grown girl doggos in her house and she lives in an apartment.YES AN APARTMENT)Soo a random doy jsut popped out and started attacking my aunt-NOPE one of the girls strawberry stood up and got bitten to protect my aunt and then the weak one (peanut) tried to get their back but shes got bitten in the neck,and then Strawberry just came up and bit that dog so hard that the dog fainted. At that time my aunt was in total shook,she just nearly had a heart attack (btw both of the dogs are 6-7 years old.) aunt IMMEDIETLY ran to the vet and healed the gurlz and hen happy end,they both ended up with non-permanet scars and a lil bit of bit mark but they are totally healty and energized as ever been.thanks for reading.leave a gud like if ya like ya dog/pet or animelz

    If I even look at my dog back home he'll wag his tail and I can see love in his eyes but it's always sad to leave and go back to my own house and see into his eyes just the look of pure sadness and heart break. Hope he makes it another year he's old for a lab at 11 years old.

  • Gabriella Nieva Post author

    Every time I see people with dogs and when there happy and playing with the puppies it makes me really sad because ever since I was little I have wish for a dog but my mom and dad would say no and when it’s was my birthday I would alway wish to have a puppy before blowing the candles but I’m 11 years old and my wish have not come true and I don’t remember but I have a little teddy dog that I had since I was 1 year old and it’s makes me really happy to have a dog even if it’s not real. Not having a dog makes me want to cry I would feed him bath him and even go on walks with him. I really want a dog even I dream that my mom got me a dog and I was so happy. For the people who have dog please take care of them. And please love them.😭❀️

    Ian Pavlov's theory is called Classical Conditioning and it even relates to humans. I've learnt this through studying child development.

    β€œYour dog doesn’t love you!”

  • Kris10 Post author

    So dogs can pick up on our emotions based on subtle things like changes in our scent, and of course they’re gonna figure things out like β€œoh if I lick your nose you get super happy and give me a belly rub” – but I could argue that’s naturally how even humans learn positive relationships. I tell a joke & you laugh, my β€œreward” in the relationship is that you’re happy & positive connection is strengthened. Animals can definitely make connections, even if their version of β€œlove” is different than ours, their bonds can be just as strong. Not to mention the longer you spend with any animal, it’s only natural that that bond would only grow stronger.

    I remember one time I was feeling lonely/depressed (I had just been dumped and my ex had moved out) and I was just sitting on the bed in something of a daze and my dog came and just jumped on the bed and lay down next to me. It was the smallest thing but I was just sobbing my eyes out because she was just there.

    No one could ever convince me she doesn't love me.
