I was talking to my brother a couple of weeks ago and Doggle Woggle came up in our conversation. I mentioned how the dog was always so happy to see me when I come home. Often, he will jump up on me to say hi amidst his wiggling. My brother said that’s because the dog is thinking, “Oh my god! You’re not dead! You came back to me!” In his estimation, dog memory is so bad that this is what they think every time their owners return to them.

Now, whenever my dog greets me, I know what he’s thinking.
