The Adventures of Bitey Dog!

Happy Tails

A while ago, I read an article that said that dogs only wag at things that are alive or that they think are alive. (For instance, they may wag at a leaf blowing across the lawn if they think it is really a chipmunk.)

The other evening, Geordie was pestering me for a bite of my dinner, and I gave him a really long green bean that I had cooked. As soon as I lifted it out of the pot and moved it toward him, he started doing an excited, happy wag. It made me wonder, did he think of the green bean as alive? Or, were the scientists wrong, and dogs do wag when they are happy and anticipating something good?
