Does your pooch chase his tail A LOT?! Does he bite at imaginary flies or just spaz out in general?
Scientists say that these behaviors may be more than ADORBz but also a form of obssesive compulsive disorder!
Researchers studying canine compulsions want to use these behaviors to learn more about human behavior.
Much like the researchers of the dog genome, scientists in Finland believe there can be a link between the two species.

The US National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) said that the same strain of bacteria that gives you strep throat could also cause a person to develop obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).

Did you know that Daniel Radcliffe has OCD?
If you're a huge fan you probably did. Otherwise, you'd never know it!
The problem DanRad has with having OCD is that people thinks it's a marker for insanity. Not true.
He developed it when he was 5… and it used to take him five minutes to turn off a light.
'I had to repeat every sentence I said under my breath. I would encourage everyone to undergo therapy. It doesn't mean you're insane or weak. I haven't had it this year so far and I'm missing it.'
We had no idea it was that severe!
We're glad you're okay now, though, we're sure it's still a struggle! Also, we'd like to tell everyone that seeing a therapist isn't defeat — it's actually a weapon to help you fight your issues!
Get help — it works!!

Granted, this isn't news to us!
While gracing the June cover of Allure, Megan Fox gave an interview making her look batshit crazy. On top of her off-the-wall comments, she dropped the f-bomb 24 times during the interview.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On her culinary skills:
"I'll starve to death before I'll cook for myself. I think I could survive a week without eating.
On being a loner:
"I could go days, weeks, without talking to another human being. I hate receiving compliments; I hate being told I'm talented or people think I'm going to be a movie star. I always feel that it's forced and fake."
On the photogs:
"I'm not a f–ing reality-TV star that's courting the paparazzi and wants my f—ing picture taken all the time. I'm at my job and I'm trying to play a character and I'm trying to be serious, and this is the sh– that's happening to me. It makes me furious.
On her obsessive compulsive disorder, where she revealed she refuses to use public toilets without covers or eat with restaurant silverware:
"This is a sickness, I have an illness — this is not OK anymore. Every time someone uses a bathroom and they flush, all the bacteria is shot into the air. Putting my mouth where a million other mouths have been, just knowing all the bacteria that you carry in your mouth? Ucch!"
On her penchant for being outrageous:
"I'm going to spend 20 years never saying anything interesting? Never telling a joke? Never pushing anyone's buttons? I'm a person, I'm not a robot."
Yikes! Guess being hawt isn't everything!
