Finding The Right Spot

Speaking of dogs, I’ve always been curious about the algorithm that runs in a dog’s brain when looking for a spot to pee.  I bet it’s got all sorts of interesting weighting factors about scent input and the dog’s internal state. 

If you’ve ever watched a dog, you know that they have to sniff around for a bit before taking care of business.  They have to find Just.  The.  Right.  Spot.

    Some of that is supposed to be “where did everyone else go, that must be a good spot, and I can let all my friends know I was here too.”  Like a dog meeting totem pole or something.
