I was reading an article that tried to answer the question: Do our furry animal friends love us? When I hold up a treat for my pet, I am not certain if my pet prefers me or the treat. This is not a valid test though… One scientific test ran MRI scans on pets while subjecting them to numerous smells that were uncommon for them to compare their reactions to other particular smells that they knew very well! The results showed that the pet owner’s scent catapults the canine brain into a frenzy of activity in a place referred to as a reward center. The pets basically prioritize the owner’s actual odor & this, the study claimed, is a form of love that happens to be directed to their main benefactors. I possibly could be paranoid, even though I swear my Heating & A/C appliance is using smells to prove if I love it. I’m not attached to any MRI appliance that tests my brain activity, but I’m relatively sure that my scan would resemble that of any test animal. Over the past few years, I have smelled that “rotten egg” stink & the stink of gas that triggered my brain to suspect some kind of gas leak. I was happy when our Heating & A/C appliance specialist inspected it hastily. I was subjected to another Heating & A/C stink test when a period of humid weather caused an algae growth in my drain pipes. Another time I was smelling what seemed to be a pile of unwashed socks, but it was not a laundry setback. Something “organic” had managed to get into the heating appliance heat exchanger. I prove my love to my Heating & A/C by having it inspected by a qualified Heating & A/C professional at least twice each year. That is when the satisfaction centers in my brain easily become activated as I breathe in the scrubbed & stink-free air with the assurance that my Heating & A/C appliance does indeed love me.
