So, for Sally...hearing the word " Sally " meant food & nourishment & tender lovin care.& For Lucy...hearing the word " Lucy " meant food & nourishment & tender lovin care.

Preening is more often associated with cats, but no species would do it at all if they weren't aware of "self". Not sure how you define self consciousness but the fact that Sally and Lucy (a pair of retrievers who used to own me) responded to their own names and not each other's suggests a clear distinction between "me" and "other".
