The concept alone that only humans are a conscious being is laughable.

Many animals, especially dogs and cats may, to some, appear a simple ignorant automaton. Others know that these creatures are far more capable than we would perceive. Animals are just as capable of rational, calculated thought as "most" humans. However, can a dog fly a plane? No. While they are capable of human emotions, they are not capable of complex thought.

Sentient? No.

Learning? Yes.

"Smart" as perceived by a human? No.

Capable of human emotion? They do it better than humans.
