Who is Influencing Who Here?

My human has these lofty perceptions that I have taken on human characteristics, but in her limited human understanding, she has failed to recognize that maybe dogs had these characteristics first. I mean, I don't want to take credit for all of human evolution, but there are some things I don't think the humans would have done without some kind of Canine Inspiration. And who better to inspire her than me?

For instance, my human bites her fingernails, and one day she saw me doing the same thing so she assumed I learned it from her. Pshaw! My dogs have been biting their claws for longer than humans have been walking upright.

I'll spare you the photo, but recently my human learned that while in the bathroom with her sibling, who was giving me a completely unnecessary bath, I peed in the tub. C'mon! It's natural! She was in hysterics, thinking that it was a human thing to pee while bathing. Duh! ALL animals pee wherever it's convenient! Only stupid humans have designated bowls for it, which are way better as drinking bowls because they're so cold.

Seriously, I'm not so sure why humans are running the planet sometimes. This is what I think of them.

But mostly we just like to chill together, and I'm not really sure whose species is responsible for coming up with that characteristic, but it doesn't matter. As long as she rubs my belly and behind my ears when we're lounging on the couch or the bed, then she can take credit for anything.
