Had I ever seen an obvious emotion like joy in the Hen House gang? I asked the question as I was reading Marc Bakoff’s book The Emotional Lives of Animals (California, New World Library, 2007). Had I seen sorrow? Fear? In the dogs, yes.
Our dogs—Skates, Poncho, DeeDee and Scooter—displayed what I could call obvious emotion at times. Several incidents stand out as too obvious to write off as “anthropomorphizing:” their tail-wagging joy at the suggestion of a walk in the canyon or a ride in the car.

I read the other day about a young man who received a maximum sentence for a crime—a sentence meted out because he refused to “apologize” and “show remorse”. Really? Oh, your honor … if the lad had simply mouthed the words of an insincere apology, you would have reduced the sentence for that reason alone? 

How many times even weekly do we hear politicians, commentators or celebrities say inflammatory things, no doubt reflecting their true personal views.
