Watch Your Dog The Next Time That You Yawn....

Ever yawn and hear somebody say "Don't, you will start me off?"

Well, according to research from an article in Scientific American, this empathic yawning ritual that we seem to share also extends to our dogs...

It appears that the sound of a human yawn can trigger a yawn from our canine friends, and it is four times more likely that a dog will mirror a human yawn if it is someone that the dog knows!
