Animals have complex dreams, MIT researcher proves

But, how can we guess what our pets are dreaming about? Dog’s eyes flutter behind their eyelids and their legs twitch when they enter a dream state.  Their breeds give us clues as to what they might be dreaming about.  Pointers have been known to actually go on point during a dream, and spaniels have been known to act as if they were flushing out birds.  Another fun fact is that small dogs appear to dream more often than large ones, and older dogs and puppies appear to dream more often than adult dogs.
