I also believe that dogs feel a full range of emotions, more than they're frequently given credit for. It's very clear when they're scared, annoyed, enjoying themselves, why not love? And from my experience with abused dogs, I'd swear they are able to appreciate the new life they've been given, in a way that dogs who have (fortunately) only experienced love can't even imagine.
I also agree with Amy, I do think we assign those emotions human terms that may not apply. There are so many times I wish we had a more complete form of communication with our pets - I'd love to know what they're thinking (most of the time!)
Most importantly, I need to believe my dogs know how much I love them.
