MADISON (WKOW)-- A new Swedish study proves that dogs actually empathize with their owners.
They found out that human yawns are contagious. They also take on the emotion that yawning usually signifies sleepiness and tiredness. It actually works well 69 percent of the time.
The study shows that yawning is contagious between humans, chimps, and baboons as well. But cats on the other hand, could care less.
