I believe dogs can sense the anxiety or fear their human partners as well as some strangers display. This is why and how they react when put into a dangerous position. I do have to say we have taught our dogs certain words and actions that would put them "on notice" danger lurks and they will react to it.

I also think a lot of animals are smarter than humans give them credit for. I mean dolphins are now using tools to catch fish, that's not something they taught themselves its something they learned by watching humans. Saying animals do not feel or love like humans is BS, you can never tell how they feel or love so how do you know its not like a humans feels and loves? Has anyone talked to a dog? has anyone been a dog and knows they have different feelings? I am not saying they do or don't just wondering why people feel they can speculate on something they have, and will never have, a clue about since they are human and not an animal. Maybe it makes them feel better if they think their dog doesn't miss them or need to be with them that much if the dog doesn't have feelings. i also know that humans emote their feelings onto others as well, like If I am in a bad mood and I go to work I feel better cause there are people in a good mood and I can't help being OK. Good karma and all that.

Just got finished watching Food inc. (GREAT movie BTW) In one scene a vet is reaching into the gut of a cow and the cow is clamped down by its head and in a cage to not be able to move. The cow is trying his best to get away (with the little room he has to even move) and the vet is reaching into his stomach and saying "yeah this doesn't hurt the cow at all, they don't have feelings" HOW does he know if a cow can feel pain or not??? How can people make such ridiculous statements about stuff that they have no clue about? And why is the cow moving over as much as he can and mooing every time your arm reaches into the belly to remove corn based feed from clogging its arteries???

i'd say love because if it was resource gaurding then he'd think you were food...

i mean like on walks and what not if a stranger started harassing you.

I agree. I say love, or loyalty, which might be the same thing to them...
