If Graham and Fiona Haddow weren’t sure who is in the driving seat there isn’t any doubt now.

Their boxer dog Fern was not best pleased to be left in the car when the Haddows visited an art gallery.

In fact, it took Fern only five minutes to show her displeasure. She slid into the front seat and blasted the horn. When there was no response, she did it again… and again. For 15 minutes.

Amused passers-by stopped, took photos and filmed her.

Mr Haddow, 58, feared the worst when he returned to his car to find a crowd gathered around it.

‘When I got closer, I realised people were pointing and laughing and taking pictures,’ he said. ‘She was sitting in there casually honking the horn.

‘A young lad on a scooter told me he had been there from the beginning and it had been going on for 15 minutes, we had only been away for 20 minutes.’

Mrs Haddow said: ‘It was as if she was saying: ‘‘Where have you been? I’ve been waiting’’. She is a bit of a diva, she just wants a bit of attention.’

The Haddows, from Liff, near Dundee, had been visiting Broughty Ferry on Saturday.

I guess you must have fMRI/x-ray eyes that showed to which extent the same anatomical areas are involved, as well as that they react differently to the sound of other dogs, and to other sounds in general.

What's next, you also perform brain surgery on cats and dogs in your spare time? {#Mrgreen}

The study is the first step toward understanding how it is that dogs can be so remarkably good at tuning into the feelings of their human owners.

Human and dog brains both have dedicated 'voice areas' — ScienceDaily

The first study to compare brain function between humans and any nonprimate animal shows that dogs have dedicated voice areas in their brains, just as people do. Dog brains, like those of people, are also sensitive to acoustic cues of emotion, according to a study in the Cell Press journal Current Biology on February 20.

The findings suggest that voice areas evolved at least 100 million years ago, the age of the last common ancestor of humans and dogs, the researchers say. It also offers new insight into humans' unique connection with our best friends in the animal kingdom and helps to explain the behavioral and neural mechanisms that made this alliance so effective for tens of thousands of years.

"Dogs and humans share a similar social environment," says Attila Andics of MTA-ELTE Comparative Ethology Research Group in Hungary. "Our findings suggest that they also use similar brain mechanisms to process social information. This may support the successfulness of vocal communication between the two species."

Andics and his colleagues trained 11 dogs to lay motionless in an fMRI brain scanner. That made it possible to run the same neuroimaging experiment on both dog and human participants — something that had never been done before. They captured both dogs' and humans' brain activities while the subjects listened to nearly 200 dog and human sounds, ranging from whining or crying to playful barking or laughing.

The images show that dog and human brains include voice areas in similar locations. Not surprisingly, the voice area of dogs responds more strongly to other dogs while that of humans responds more strongly to other humans.

The researchers also noted striking similarities in the ways the dog and human brains process emotionally loaded sounds. In both species, an area near the primary auditory cortex lit up more with happy sounds than unhappy ones. Andics says the researchers were most struck by the common response to emotion across species.

There were some differences, too: in dogs, 48% of all sound-sensitive brain regions respond more strongly to sounds other than voices. That's in contrast to humans, in which only 3% of sound-sensitive brain regions show greater response to nonvocal versus vocal sounds.

The study is the first step toward understanding how it is that dogs can be so remarkably good at tuning into the feelings of their human owners.

"This method offers a totally new way of investigating neural processing in dogs," Andics says. "At last we begin to understand how our best friend is looking at us and navigating in our social environment."

The guy to the left was really good at knowing what he needed to fear (not much) and what he didn't.  When we were camping and bears came into the campground he would always wake me up but never make a sound.  Almost anything else though was fair game.  He did have the same biggest fear though.  Whenever I had to leave him with someone else even the ones who had done it before and knew what to expect would say they were thinking about taking him to the vet the first day or so.
