I'm guessing they don't see it as being wrong/questionable though. Thats the difference

its not proven that animals have any feelings at all.

humans excluded...

Don't know.. I can tell my dog has fear and happiness. But whether she wants to mate with a female or male.. I don't believe that is a choice as much as it is instinct to mate period. For the same reason a dog may attempt to mate with your foot..

Have to agree with Vampist. I think dogs have genuine feelings and emotions, but as far as male/female preference, I think it's more of an instinct.

Especially considering some puppies that are raised in separate homes from birth may not ever see a dog of the opposite sex. I don't think being around dogs of the same sex for 'x' amount of years would give them a preference.

Male / Female attraction in humans is instinct too.

But you would agree that everyone is different?
Would you also agree that there should be a classification in animals vs human? I think so anyway... I know blah blah scientifically we are animals blah blah... what ever. I am Human not an animal thank you.
So @63083 and the whole animal thing. No. We are not animals in my book. I have my reasoning but of course.. I don't want to turn this into something else..

Agree. Go spend time with a dog and you will read its body language really easily.
