Dogs: Why Are They Yawning?

"Dogs yawn even when they only hear the sound of their owners doing the same, researchers have found. A study found that nearly half of all dogs yawned when played a recording of a human being making such a noise. But when the yawn played belonged to their owners, the canines were five times more likely than if the voice belonged to a stranger."

Also because they are tired from reassuring me that I am loved.

More dog studies in the Awl will result in my satisfied lip smacking of contentment.
