    Do Dogs fall in love?

    My friend once asked me about her female German Sheppard that when ever she pass the house of a particular male of her breed, she would bark and jump a lot to draw attention of that dog. Even though she was friendly dog and was friends with many dogs but this behavior was only for that male. So do the dogs also fall in love or infatuation?

    According to Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, the author of the book "The Hidden Life of Dogs", they do. Dogs are usually ready to mate with any dog that happens to be about, but do seem to form a special bond. I do not know whether to call it love or infatuation, but a lot of dogs seem to find a special companion of the opposite sex. BFF?

      Fascinating....That may explain why some dogs grieve so severely and become depressed when a special canine friend dies.
