If you had to pick between two horrible options of a PUPPY getting hurt or some random dude on the street getting hurt . . . well, I’m pretty sure I know what you’d go with.
A new study out of Northeastern University in Boston found that the overwhelming majority of people have more EMPATHY for dogs than for other people. In fact, the only human beings we worry about more than we worry about dogs are babies.
The researchers say it’s because we see dogs and babies as being INNOCENT and vulnerable, so we can’t help but feel responsible if they get hurt on our watch. We don’t necessarily have those feelings with other adults.
