I am a dog, but I still understand you

Despite the naysayers, we DO understand you! New science tells us that dogs understand human gestures about almost as well as toddlers, and better than chimpanzees. They think that because we are domesticated, we have evolved to understand human gestures like head tilting, pointing, and staring. Plus the similarities between baby-talk and dog-talk help dogs socialize and learn from exaggerated sounds and gestures. Neat stuff!
