After a long, stressful day, nothing is better than coming home to your best friend frantically awaiting your arrival right at the front door. As excited as you are to see your pet, there is no doubt that your pup is just as excited to see you.

This article is so true. I have Diabetes and was amazed to find that my dog, Gracie was picking up on my low blood sugar readings. She has already saved me twice by waking me up from a nap when I had dangerously low blood sugar. Once she gets me up and correcting myself, she sticks to my side like glue until I am back to normal. It is very comforting-what a good girl! It drives me crazy to think that someone just dumped her on the highway when they thought she was useless...adopting Gracie has been a huge blessing to our family!

b/c body language plays a large role in dog packs, i think they're naturals in learning to recognize and remember what our non-words are saying. but their heightened sense of smell is also in tune to what's going on in our heads. a change in emotion releases hormones in undetectable to the human nose, but dogs can pick up on it. between our body language and scent, it's no wonder they're the first to know.

CATS are also good communicators! A lot of it may be non-verbal, but it can be quite clear what they are saying--and not just "meow"!!!!

I agree, cats are good communicators. I lost a much-loved cat that lived with my parents and my cat here knew I was sad. He followed me around all day and just sat by me. Cats' intelligence should not be under-estimated!

Me and Skitters don't need a survey we are the perfect pair and Skitters and I are almost excactly alike we can tell what one another is thinking it's like we can read each others minds and we hate to be apart and are always on edge worried about the other until we are back together. Skitters also knows when my blood sugar is high or low she will nudge me if my blood sugar is not normal she goes crazy until I check it and take care of it.

Our pets are more sensitive than we are, I believe. Since they do not communicate like humans do, I think they rely on other senses to pick up on your emotions, or those senses are heightened more than ours. Animals know!

absolutely, they have instincts humans can only dream of. like how our animals know a storms coming even before we switch on the weather channel. they can literally feel the extra ions in the air, which can really freak out some animals. toulouse goes into these long, distressed yowls up to two hours before it storms.

It's no secret that dogs and cats are great companions. They always seem to know when I need a "hug".
