23-NOV-2016: Your dog remembers what you did…
Polish photographer Alicja Zmyslowska
People have a remarkable ability to remember and recall events from the past, even when those events didn’t hold any particular importance at the time they occurred. Now, researchers reporting in the journal Current Biology on November 23 have evidence that dogs have that kind of “episodic memory” too.
The study found that dogs can recall a person’s complex actions even when they don’t expect to have their memory tested.
“The results of our study can be considered as a further step to break down artificially erected barriers between non-human animals and humans,” says Claudia Fugazza of MTA-ELTE Comparative Ethology Research Group in Budapest, Hungary. “Dogs are among the few species that people consider ‘clever,’ and yet we are still surprised whenever a study reveals that dogs and their owners may share some mental abilities despite our distant evolutionary relationship.”

Despite her young age, 19-year-old Polish photographer Alicja Zmyslowska is one of the most talented dog photographers we’ve ever seen.
Like great “people” portrait photographers, she doesn’t just capture the moment, but also the real personality of the subjects.
During a recent interview she told Bored Panda that before landing on dog portrait photography she’s practically done almost every kind of dog photography, from sports to show-ring photos, but honestly it doesn’t take a professional critic to see that her true, incredibly talent is taking beautiful, full of life portraits of our little furry friends.
