When Porter the dog tries to figure out why his owner has placed a toy bone under a bucket, his response might provide some insight about human development, autism and other learning disabilities.
That's the hope of Laurie Santos, who runs the Canine Cognition Center at Yale, which opened in December. She pointed to the 4-year-old chocolate lab mix, brought in by psychology grad student Kristi Leimgruber. Porter is growing up in the same kind of environment as human children, Santos said, so comparing how he learns with the way people learn can tell us a lot about human development.

Can we have a $10M grant to study that?
bud light tells it true
A dog’s philosphy of life: If you can’t eat it or hump it, piss on it.
“What’s Your Dog Thinking? Researchers At Yale Want To Know”
Aaahhhh, yeah! While he is licking his own balls or eating a pile of horse crap...not a lot of real genius there. What in the hell do they need to know this BS for?!?
Researchers at Yale must be the GD dumbest smart people on earth. Guess this is what you get when you have more money than sense!
Why don’t they research why being liberal makes liberal men so feminine?
Bacon Bacon Bacon Bacon Bacon Bacon Bacon Bacon Bacon,........and......BACON!
Yale eh?? perhaps they will let the dogs into Skull and Bones...perhaps a big old Shepherd will carry Geronimo’s skull around the hall....

Dogs are thinking one thing and one thing only — food.
Case-in-point, I give my dog tons of affection, constantly scratching its ears and snuggling with it. My wife doesn’t do any of that, but she does feed it. I don’t feed it.
Guess which one of us she follows and wants to be near all day long?
Or perhaps they won’t... :)
Sleep......pet me.....hate cat.....eat......pee.....eat.......sleep.....whereyougoing?..........you’reback!........feed me.......water bowl........bacon treat.......chew things.......eat......
They could have just asked Bill Clinton.
(I could end it there, but I’ll go on to explain “dog philosophy”)
“If you can’t eat it or have sex with it, p1$$ on it.”
Let me in, let me out, let me in, let me out, let me in......
Sleep, poop, bacon.
Wag tail often. Give love, get love and bacon.
Madam has my husband well trained. When ever she wants a biscuit, she barks at the door like she has to go out. When the door is opened, she looks out for a second or two, then turns around and walks over to where her treats are stored and waits.
And daddy always gives her a treat. Mommy at least expects her to walk out on to the porch before returning for the biscuit.
“The Canine Cognition Center at Yale”
They want to know what dogs are thinking? And they started a Center at an Ivy League School to look into this? Dogs lick their butts and eat cat turds and try to have sex with a towel. So do Democrats. Study them. At least most Democrats can talk.
The rumors of your demise are unfounded. ; )
“I’m hungry... I’ m sleepy.. I’m hungry.... Squirrel!”
A waste of money for this study. Let dogs do what they do, and don’t waste money trying to figure it out.
