All those who have dogs as pets can relate to this. Must have seen your pet lurking around, running around, barking at someone, bringing the morning newspaper and so on. So, what exactly goes in your dog's mind during each such time. What do they think and dream about, perhaps chasing cats or having some good quality dog food. Well, scientists at Harvard recently conducted a study to find an answer to this very question. And they got some fascinating answers.

The research showed that dogs mostly dream about the people with whom they spend most of their time, i.e., their owners. According to Dr. Deirdre Barrett, there is no reason as to why the mindset of pets be any different from humans. Just like we think about our daily tasks in a vague manner, they also do the same. Dogs soon get extremely attached to people. So at some point they may be dreaming of their owners face and at other point their smell. Maybe even dreaming about annoying their owner.
