I disagree with the part that says dogs don't do anything to spite or get revenge on their owners. Our dog is naughty when he is trained not to be and gets "touchy" when he isn't feeling well or is in a bad mood, much like people I suppose...

All animals communicate. Ever see those colorful carp in those stone pools in several of the Asian buffets around the area congregate at the end of the pool where people are? "Feed me" is the unmistakable message. Cats too: the resident feline of the owatonnabill household, Willow, knows that when meowing piteously and standing by her empty dish isn't enough of a message, then batting a pen off the desk or picking up a pair of eyeglasses lying on the nightstand in her teeth and dropping them onto the floor sure gets the message across.
