Do You Anthropomorphize Your Companion Animal?

Do You Anthropomorphize Your Companion Animal?

According to an new study your dog may actually be able to feel the same emotions that you feel. I'm certain we've all said "He looks so sad when I get upset that he's eaten my shoe" or "She's so happy when I get home". Until now, you were anthropomorphizing your dog. That means assigning a human characteristic to an animal, and I'm absolutley guilty of doing that at least 5 times a day with my companion Arcot, and his "sister" Lily.

Fringe Will Appeal to WNY’s Festival-Loving Residents

Fringe Will Appeal to WNY’s Festival-Loving Residents

To describe the London (Ontario) Fringe Festival presents a bit of a challenge. Imagine having your choice of 50 different theatre companies from across Canada and around the world. Consider that there are 350 performance times and on stage there will be everything from musicals, comedies, dramas, dance, clowns, magic and shows that defy categories and descriptions. And that’s just for starters!

Now you also need to image over 100 visual artists exhibiting in the art gallery and participating in a one-night contemporary art experience that explodes onto the streets in the downtown core.
