DO dogs have proportionately bigger brains? Maybe...

There are a couple of possible explanations, including the semi-literate one in your link. Sociality does seem to require some extra brain power.

Another possibility may be linked to smaller dogs being bred from originally larger dogs - every aspect won't shrink equally....
