Can your dog catch your yawn?
Posted 10/25/2012 2:15:00 PM

Yes, your dog can. But your puppy can't.  Researchers say contagious yawns can only be caught once you have empathy. And puppies don't have empathy until they are about seven months old. And as for your kids, they can't catch your yawns until they are about four years old when they discover empathy as well.

You can read more here.  I catch yawns easily. Does that mean I have a lot of empathy?
