Can dogs plan long-term? If they like their lunch today, do they “wish” it will also be what’s served at supper? Or do they stay in the present, have it over and done with, and leave it that way?

Or is it simply attachment, a feeling of safety, an inexplicable bond? We know they feel profound sadness, but do they have the capacity to forget if they want to?
