All The More Reason to Like Dogs

Dogs do not like people who are mean to their owners, Japanese researchers said Friday, and will refuse food offered by people who have snubbed their master.

The findings reveal that canines have the capacity to co-operate socially -- a characteristic found in a relatively small number of species, including humans and some other primates.

It's a good thing they didn't try to use my 10 year old Labrador Retriever for this this test. He's about as loyal as a dog can get, however, I've never seen him turn down food for any reason.
