    I find this hard to believe. I suspect “dog bias” by the research team.

    Intelligence comparisons between species always make me think we are the dumb ones….
    Cars are much cooler than dogs, they bond a lot differently.

    The same scientists would deny any biologically-based difference in intelligence between Japanese and pigmies, or between men and women.

      “‘I believe the absolute number of neurons an animal has, especially in the cerebral cortex, determines the richness of their internal mental state and their ability to predict what is about to happen in their environment based on past experience,’ study lead author Dr Herculano-Houzel told Vanderbilt University’s news site. ”

      And you would be wrong Billy.

    Border collie has a vocabulary of over a thousand words — smarter than a mexican!

    Dogs are smart, cats are cunning.

    This is my dog. when we got home from our walk she had a nap on the floor and solved quadratic equations in her sleep.

      You can see the deep thoughts there.

      Plus cute.

      Did she tutor IQ80 for his math video?

    Almost any dog would have the intelligence not to use my extension ladder to gain access to my roof to oversee the work I’m doing on it. My cat, not so much.

    And your average dog is smarter then your average muslim. Of course even cats and sloths are much better suited to integrate into society then your average muslim. Then again, dogs, cats and sloths don’t have to read the koran. Also, they don’t wear suicide vests.
    Just thought of something else. Dogs and cats are also smarter then the current prime minister of Canada. At least a dog can fetch without having someone point the way as is required for the prime minister to find his office in Ottawa.

      “And your average dog is smarter then your average muslim.”

      Smell better, too.

    • WildWelshWoman

      What comes out of a dog’s butt is smarter than the prime minister!

      Oh, and it smells better than your average Muslim.

    Dogs smarter than cats? Pffft “Fake News”

    We should discuss this later while we’re having a few drinks and cleaning our guns.

  • Clausewitz

    To Liberals a dog is the perfect pet. They are needy, do only as they are told, never talk back, and are incapable of independent thought like a cat.

  • Dogs have been known to fetch beer.

    That indicates a high level of intelligence.

    • dukestreet

      cats have been known to drink the beer. Why waste energy giving it to the dumb human who runs around all day with the dogs. the cats just kick back, relax and enjoy life. The dogs are always begging for stuff from their humans and doing tricks to get it. Cats just take what they want. Google kepto-kitty.

        Very cunning indeed!

      • But they’re takers!

        • dukestreet

          Better than being beggars. At least they get what they want.

          • After scratching you, yes.

          • dukestreet

            Look after your cat properly and you don’t get scratched. Understand cat language as well and don’t get scratched either.

          • Cats just scratch. They just do.

      Years ago I had an old mutt that liked to drink beer from a Frisbee, only problem, she was a nasty drunk.

    Pending more extensive research, including litters of cats raised by Border Collies and vice versa, I must decline to peer review these preliminary findings.

    Dogs have masters. Cats have slaves. I know, I’m a slave to three felines. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/90704b0d617c30d15acd16493b7960e05a09e97eccd08ffd714e41b347072bd1.jpg

      awesome!

    Just want to mention that Islam considers dogs harem (“filthy” and forbidden), so one should consider that a plus for those owning dogs. Needless to say that fact has drawn me closer to our Labrador-mix Wonka. A rescue dog from the SPCA, he is coming along, and likes the pampered life of being a seniors’ pet.

    Cats think you’re a big stupid cat. Dogs think you’re a god.
