However, by that time humans will have so fucked-up the planet that there won’t be much left for the dogs to take over.
Zak is a 4-year old Border Collie, currently reckoned to be the smartest dog in the world with an IQ equivalent to that of a 7-year old. He converses using a specially-designed extra-large iPad.
He said that as dogs are our best friends, they hate to see humans bury themselves instead of the bone.
Dogs will be able to help their human friends forage for food in the next 20-30 years. But there will be a growing shortage of food of every kind and humans will die of starvation and pollution.
Zak said that even though dogs are getting smarter, they still lack the opposable thumbs needed to make and work tools. But as humans get dumber, they will be unable to make or use tools and will die out leaving a desolate planet to the dogs.
Zak suggested dogs might form an alliance with the apes and other creatures with opposable thumbs but admitted that humans were their favourite animal, if not the smartest.
Apart from your dog, who is your best friend and have you noticed them getting increasingly dumber?
What’s the dumbest thing you’ve done?
