"It's possible that dogs have even affected human evolution. People who took dogs into their homes and villages may have had certain advantages. As much as we made dogs, I think dogs probably made some part of us, too."
Although it is technically possible to implement a wide range of restraints, from harnesses to implanted fixation devices, we believe this violates a basic principle of self-determination that is normally reserved for humans, but in this case should be extended to dogs: they should be free to exit the scanner at all times. Similarly, this means that purpose-bred laboratory dogs should not be used as they have no choice.
I told my dog to do A, and he did A.
I told my dog to do B, and he did B.
I told my dog to do C, and he did C.
I told my dog to do D, but he won't do D!
If Master says A, I am to do A. If my nuts itch, I lick them. bee is kinda fun, and sometimes Master says "B" when I want to do bee, so that's cool. Did you know his feet smell just like that spot on the carpet where some cat peed, a long time ago? But not like fresh cat pee! Hey, funny thing, every time he says C, and I do this thing, he gets all happy. He's cute when he's happy. I gotta try to do this thing more often. My nose itches. Ooh, and it tastes like dog food - score! Why is master still saying D at me? I know; I'll do bee and this thing; that will probably make him super-happy!
