Brenna is a writer, radio fiend, and filmmaker who lives in Brooklyn. She hails from the Adirondack Mountains, where she makes frequent getaways for ice-fishing, hunting, and chopping wood.
In our Animal Minds show, we talk to the author of a clever study that calls into question what's really going on in a dog's head when it looks "guilty." Hint: even totally innocent pets make dejected, hangdog faces -- meaning those expressions may not have anything to do with owning up to bad behavior.
Dog owners, we'd love to hear your reactions. (If you haven't listened to Animal Minds yet, do it now!)
We're especially curious if, after listening, you still think your dog looks remorseful when it does something wrong. Send us a photo!
