The answer is plain. But no matter. Science, inherently suspicious of the obvious, dotes on measurement, even of what's easy to see.As a result, the study of animal intellect has attained a respectability on a par with physics and chemistry, and the news media tag along.

Nicholas and Alexandra were conked out on a warm floor yesterday, sleeping after a night's ordeal that began when they bolted past the gate of their Westminster-area home, ran into woods and fell through ice on a pond - leading to an improvised canine rescue by state police and a sheriff's deputy. The adventure of the black Labrador retrievers began about 8 p.m. Sunday, when they escaped as their owner Bill Schroeder was shoveling snow with his wife, Jane, and daughters Clare, 13, and Beth, 10, at their home in the Carriage Hill community off Gorsuch Road.
