Funny how evolution works.

My cats are so stupid that they get their claws lodged in everything and anything and sit there looking dumbfounded for moments on end. It baffles me how some species were able to survive in the wild.

My guess is that cats actually have lost some intelligence in the selective breeding process. Domestic cats have been bred to retain infantile characteristics into adulthood. Wild cats aren't social creatures: they only get together to mate, pretty much. They are, however, social and friendly as kittens. In breeding them selectively to enhance this characteristic, there's probably been an intelligence trade-off along the way.

Selective breeding has definitely made dogs suffer in the brain department. Wolves, for example, can learn through observation, whereas dogs only really learn through trial and error (operant conditioning). Dogs were bred for 'emotional intelligence' (to use a ghastly phrase) - to be responsive to social signals, but it was at the expense of their pure reasoning skills.

My dog is the exact same way, he tends to lift a leg on mailboxes even when he's got nothing left to give, it's hilarious. Here he is

If you change the way you look at things, the things you view will change. To me this doesn't look so stupid. If its cold out, maybe he is "manipulating" his owner to let him in (cause he knows he/she will), and after he gets warmed up, and the owner lets him back outside he takes a dump after being warmed for short time frame.

And, its quite normal for a dog to urinate several times during a walk or when in the yard, and not fully eliminate their urine in their bladder. Its their way of leaving a scent to other animals in the area or a way of marking their area (and in some cases it allows them to find their way back in the event they get lost). You see, this is not a stupid built in instinct.

We had a Chocolate Labrador, and if you would leave the door open, he would literally dash out the door, and be gone. Used to really upset me, because he was about 125 pounds. Once we got him neutered, this stopped. Vet told me a dog can smell pussy (in heat) miles away, and this was what he was after. lol. Not so stupid. Humans do far worse for their own pleasure.

Another thing that my chocolate lab did was dig large holes in our yard during the summer. This really caused complications. But the reason he was digging so much is that the ground underneath was cooler than the surface soil. And, he would simply lay in it to assist himself in being cooler. A dog house cured this problem; with one exception. He had a habit of digging and burying his bones. But this too isn't so stupid. A snack later, eh? Or something to chew on or eat later in case the owner forgets to feed his ass. Again, not so stupid as it is irritating.

Another problem (before neutering) was humping everything in site. One "aerial burial" (when about 9 months old), and this fixed this, after humping my wife's leg for about....oh, 30 seconds. Again, this is instinct, and not a sex act. This act is a attempt to show dominance, not wanting to have sex with her leg (LOL). The act of throwing him in the air, and landing on his ass, ended this dominance, and he understood who the boss was. Some never get it, but in this case with a very smart dog, it took only one time flying in mid flight to get the point.

My dog lost this part of his evolution. Blows his load at the corner of our street and spends the rest of the walk trying to force something out. Dopiest dog alive but fun to play with.
