Animals also have feelings....... The American Zoologist Patricia McConnell depicts how her dog Lassie reacted to the death of her best friend, Lucke.These two dogs adored each other and were always  together. Following Lucke's death, Lassie stayed a whole day in the room with the body, lying with her head down with melting sad eyes, and furrowed brow. The next day she regressed to stereotypical behavior from her youth, spinning around like crazy and licking and sucking her toys as if nursing. McConnell concluded that Lassie had grasped the finality of Lucke's death. Otherwise why would her mood have changed so drastically?
