The Repetitive Nature of Dogs (And Humans)

I had wondered, until very recently, why dogs are so intensely interested in the SAME blade of grass seemingly EVERY DAY.....then it occurred to me.....what must Roxy think of my obsession with the daily paper? Surely, to her, it is the SAME "blade of grass" in which we invest OUR interest in for hours at a time.....

But we all know that a newspaper is NOT the same every day.....being a cynic myself, I will say it gets progressively worse as the days pass.....but DIFFERENT nonetheless.

To a dog then, the same blade of grass provides a plethora of experiences each and every day.

  1. I suppose if dogs have less long term memory than we do to them it could be new blade of grass everyday; that would be kind of nice.
