We know nothing about what dogs think. You'd need to read their mind to know for sure.
So saying, they have no sense or place, or whatever she said, doesn't mean anything to me.
And also, dogs should be treated just like all other life, like humans. Or better, that's what I do, dogs are superior to people.
Once you can read a dogs mind, then tell me that.
Just like Aliens existing is currently a theory, except it's dead obvious they exist. For some reason people don't want other intelligent life to exist.
Maybe someday, they'll hack every screen, and tell everybody they exist. The US government won't tell their people what they know.
