Dog Days of Summer...Yawn

Yesterday while fighting that familiar mid-afternoon slump, I heard a story on PRI's The World about recent research on dogs and infectious yawning. Apparently, British researchers studied a group of dogs to see if they would yawn when placed in a room with a yawning man (72% yawned on cue). I'm not surprised. We engage in mutual yawn fests with our yellow lab, Jasmine, every morning. She'll even do a combination yawn/groan if we prompt her. Check out the stories lovers will relate! Ellen
