A recent study done at the Messerli Institute in Austria shows that dogs understand expressions on your face—http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/02/150212131647.htm
Dogs can tell the difference between happy and angry human faces, according to a new study. The discovery represents the first solid evidence that an animal other than humans can discriminate between emotional expressions in another species, the researchers say.

Drs. George and Peter are skillful, caring and dedicated physicians. They are widely knowledgeable about all aspects of health and wellness--both preventative and recuperative. We are never rushed, always honored, and usually accommodated--even with spur-of-the-moment injuries. The office staff is wonderful and pleasant. The facilities are new, clean, bright and comfortable. We look forward to our visits and would never go elsewhere.

When I called "Level Up Construction," the President, Joe Del Guidice, personally returned my call. He was warm and patient, and answered all my questions thoroughly and clearly. We made an appointment for him to come to my home within a week and he was on time and entirely professional. It is clear that he has years of experience and expertise. His work was top-notch all around, and that's important to me.
