Jun 18, 2017 - Dogs have no perception of time, but don't like being alone and miss us when we are gone.

Yet they are incredibly smart and know us better than we know them.

Shadow Says:

Jun 14, 2017 - I never knew dogs could control time

Dimensional Dreams Says:

Jun 12, 2017 - "he gave the dog five scents"
for a moment, I paused the video and tried to link evolution and wonder why would dogs want money, I could've made a new concept in philosophy, but I couldn't find many connections.
After playing the video and sighing to my ideas to have just realized what has just happened, I just moved on and enjoyed the rest of the video.

Jun 1, 2017 - My dog 100% misses my mother. Everyone could be home but my mom out of town and my dog would stop eating. Any tips?

May 27, 2017 - Whenever my dad or mom goes to the bathroom, my dog just lies or sits outside the door, waiting for them. Cute lmao

Nathan Moore Says:

May 20, 2017 - Are you it's ok to be smart's girlfriend

My Ego Says:

May 19, 2017 - Random comment no point really just want to say I love my dog and I haven't seen him in 2 days and I wonder if he's sad and missing me.

Gaming Alex Says:

May 19, 2017 - My dog would go crazy and greet me like crazy when I left for vacation a couple of days. And when I leave just for school and back it would be a crazy greet not just as crazy.
