Who would mourn the human race?

I often consider the end of the human race (as I'm sure we all do). What would happen to the earth? What animals would care? Wouldn't all flora and fauna be immeasurably better off without us around to screw things up?

But now that I'm a dog owner, it's clear to me that one species -- and undoubtedly only one -- would be in worse shape without us. So tonight I leaned over Ozzie and said, "On behalf of all the other humans, thank you for being the only species who would miss us if the human race died out."
