That photo is remarkable, Dave.

I, too, was made slightly uncomfortable by the anthropomorphism. We can’t expect to accurately think like others, including other species. Just as the sense of vision (or smell, or…) makes for a hugely different experience from species to species, I think our thought processes probably do as well. Nonetheless, it is often useful to imagine ourselves in the shoes — or pawprints — of others, if it extends our habitual thought patterns or challenges assumptions.
