A very exciting day at the network today, as we welcome a new blogger - Julie Hecht, an expert in dog cognition and behavior, which is mostly (some other animals may occasionally show up) what her new blog Dog Spies is going to be about. Dog Spies will also be listed among our MIND blogs.

You can check out archives of her old blog to get a better idea of her writing, or you can follow her other blog, Do You Believe in Dog, where Julie and her co-blogger Mia Cobb exhange letters full of information about all things dog.

You can follow Julie on Twitter and Facebook, and go say Hello on her first post - Spying on Dogs: Intrigue, drama and science.
