Can dogs eat cheerios?

So, do dogs like Cheerios? According to a new study, that's more than you might think.

In fact, the study's lead researcher, Jennifer Fugelsang, said it was "the most compelling evidence yet that our pets share at least some of the same emotional and intellectual qualities as their owners."

The new study was published in the journal PNAS and involved 42 dogs (with owner consent) and their owner.

During the study, participants took two kinds of tests: a measure of empathic sensitivity and a battery of measures of mental acuity.

On the tests, the owner and the dog had to identify objects that were more similar to their preferences, or "wants" as the researchers call them. This measure of empathic sensitivity is known as the ability to share another's perspective.

In both the owner-dog pairs and the owner-owner pairs, the owners were consistently better at sharing their dog's wants than vice-versa. That finding suggests that dogs are more like their owners emotionally than vice-versa.

This photo, from The Guardian, was captioned as follows: "A dog owner and her dog. They're very different species, yet their interactions are intimate in a way not easily shared by other species."

The results suggest that dogs "may possess a capacity for sharing perspectives with their owners equivalent to that of other species."

In other words, if you're wondering if your dog has a sense of humor, and you really want to know, maybe the answer is yes.

"I think it's pretty cool," said owner-dog duo Kristen Fazzone.

But how does this relate to eating? It seems like eating Cheerios is a pretty obvious thing to do.

Fugelsang and her colleagues found that owners and their dogs were equally good at sharing the owner's wants when it came to eating Cheerios.

That seems counterintuitive, but Fugelsang told The Guardian, "It doesn't have to make sense. When our dogs are having a bad day we'll just put out a box of Cheerios. They love it. It's good for them."

Fugelsang says that the results have "important implications for how people and dogs interact."

The dog study found that dogs' empathic abilities may be stronger than humans'. She and her colleagues suspect this may be related to dogs' social learning ability. "They're very sensitive to the humans in their lives, and to what is going on around them," she said.

Another study published earlier this year found that people with autism may have heightened empathic abilities compared to the general population. So, maybe dogs and people are more alike than you'd expect.

The findings also suggest that dogs and humans may share a similar social-cognitive ability.

"I'm also pretty sure that dogs can have a sense of humor. They definitely laugh at funny things. And they know when to laugh at the funny things and not the serious things."

So, if you're planning on letting your dog eat Cheerios, just remember that not all of them are like human treats.
