Do dogs consciously wag their tail?
    #4614031 - 09/02/05 10:43 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

My mother said "if there is a god, and a heaven and all that - i hope we get to ask as many questions as possible" "like what" i said... "well, like if a dog consciously wags it tails...

now i think thats kind of a cop out question for God and all, so i googled it... but then i went to make coffee...

I think so.



Do we know how cats purr? I was under the impression that it had escaped the reach of modern science, but then again I haven't asked in a while.

I would say yes, since mine seems to start wagging his tail when

someone he likes comes around.  I have no idea, though.

You should sip the coffee slowly

i think its like blinking and breathing.. you can consciously do it if you try.. but if you forget about it , it will do it automatically..

Do tails consciously wag their dog?

I think dogs wagging their tail is like smiling, and most humans don't consciously smile (naturally that is, we're ignoring forced social customs which I assume dogs don't have). When you see someone you like or something good happens, you just smile; I believe it's the same with dogs. They wouldn't seem to get anything out of consciously controlling their tail, as it just signifies happiness that is instinctively expressed.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.
