Why Is This Dog Smiling?

 Before we leave the topic of smiling . . . .

Have you ever wondered why we all love our dogs so much? Part of the reason is that they’ve learned to connect with us on a human level. 

Like humans, they look us in the eye and seem to know what we’re thinking.  Researchers in Hungary have discovered  that our dogs really do connect with us through eye contact.  For example, they can find hidden food by watching our eyes and gleaning clues to the hiding places. 

No one’s studied this yet as far as I know. But I’m convinced that dogs have also learned to charm us with a smile. How can you not love a dog that looks at you and smiles?

Stone-faced business people take note.  Would you approve this dog’s budget request?
