Speaking of whether or not dogs have self-consciousness ... there’s a really interesting article on entitled “Dogs Have A Consciousness Too.” Dogs mysteriously failed for years to pass the classic self-recognition test performed with a mirror — until a special “sniff-based” version was developed. It makes perfect sense that the dominant senses of each animal need to be taken into account in designing self-recognition exercises for them; otherwise, it’s like species-biased standardized testing, haha! I love the concluding remarks from the article: “The innovative approach to test the self-awareness [of dogs] with a smell test highlights the need to shift the paradigm of the anthropocentric idea of consciousness to a species-specific perspective. We would never expect that a mole or a bat can recognize themselves in a mirror, but now we have strong empirical evidence to suggest that if species other than primates are tested using chemical or auditory perception, we could get really unexpected results.” This opens up a vast new realm of exciting possibilities ... particularly in light of pan-psychism....
