Summery- Scientists from The Arizona Canine Cognition Center found that children who are two years old show very similar social skills of a dog. These dogs and children were run through a series of test showing their types of cognition. Toddlers and Dog express their feelings towards others in the same way, like a constant want for attention or winning when you miss someone.
Cognition- (noun) the act or process of knowing.
Bonobo- (noun) a pygmy chimpanzee.
My opinion- The article was very entertaining. I find it to be ironic in a sense because many people who have toddlers and dogs probably have noticed a similarity in this behavior but never thought much of it. I do like how they compared their data collected to chimpanzees.
