She worried she fat. She needs me for something. And so. We, we pay attention to them. So I it seems to trigger some kind of caregiving response in most human, and that desire to peer into one another's eyes is apparently mutually beneficial. Researchers found that dogs like humans experience a surge in oxytocin levels what's called the love hormone as for. What's next Burroughs says while future? Studies may seem like their dog focused, they're really about understanding ourselves because we're just weird BC's that decided to bring other species to live with our inner house.
