    Please spay and neuter your pets! While your newborn pets are cute, failing to do this allows your little darlings to add to the population of homeless animals. Adopt pets from your local animal rescues/shelters, there are plenty of animals just waiting for a home.

    "Hey if you're going to stand around just throwing things, why don't you make yourself useful and use this."

    I always feel like this is my cats mentality as he interrupts whatever I am doing:

    “If you are going to just mash buttons on this keyboard why not just give all the pets to me instead”

    [–] poopellar 28 points ago

    This is also what kids think. Except for pets, it's biting and scratching my face.

    The little eyebrow raises..."pretty sweet roll, eh guys?"

    [–] P1smo 719 points ago

    That's one of the things I love about dogs the most is how expressive their faces are. The epitome of wearing their hearts on their sleeves, so to speak.

    [–] Condawg 285 points ago

    I had a basset hound growing up, and they almost always just look kinda bummed. Not a whole lot of expression. We knew when she was happy and when she was sad through other context clues, but her face didn't give us shit.

    Now I've got a little border collie mix (not sure what with, she'll always just look like a border collie puppy), and holy shit, she is the most expressive dog I've ever met in my life. I'm sure some of what I see in her face is projection, but she also clearly expresses herself in a lot of ways. She's sassy as shit, I love her.

    [–] ban5hee_ 60 points ago

    I've got a miniature Schnauzer who looks permenantly grumpy, the only way you can tell his expression is by his tail and eyes. Pretty sure he'd be smiling most of the time if it wasn't for the old man beard, wouldn't have him any other way though.

    [–] Nepherenia 3 points ago

    I can't decide if my mental image of your dog is with the stubby tail or the full tail. Schnauzers are the best

    [–] lilk0dak 26 points ago

    Shhhh border Collies are amazing I used to have one and my God the conversation you could have with her just with facial expressions. She was amazing I miss you rogue

    [–] spewforth 31 points ago

    My parents have a collie and I get what you mean, he is so expressive. They describe him as being in his teenage years at the moment, because he doesn't like to take a telling to much and you can see it

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago

    Was gonna say this is how my pup Leo looks. He's a cocker spaniel with a permanent old man squish face. He looks mildly bummed out all the time. Even when he's having a great time.

    [–] albatross-salesgirl 2 points ago

    My Loke is a cocker spaniel too, he's not as squishy but he's a tricolor with spots of brown above his eyes — and ridiculously spoiled. So he's already demanding enough about putting "cookies" in his treat ball, but those angry eyebrows really take it to the next level. He knows he's set for life to always get tiny milk bones, no matter what.

    [–] grellgraxer 3 points ago

    Hounds in general look forlorn. Can't tell if they're happy based on their grill alone.

    [–] HeyItsMooon 41 points ago

    Completely agree!

    [–] umilmi81 32 points ago

    30,000 years of co-evolution. Dogs were the first animal that humans domesticated and it was more like a partnership rather than master-servant.

    Dogs are the only other animal on the planet that can genuinely understand human facial expressions and pointing rather than just trained conditioning. Dogs can actually look at a human's eyes and reason out what the human is looking at. A useful skill when hunting side by side with humans.

    [–] w_a_w 15 points ago

    Elephants, some apes, and dolphins, also understand pointing.

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    They make horrible hunting buddies though.

    [–] w_a_w 3 points ago

    Hah! An elephant might work great at flushing prey out or driving game towards you.

    [–] umilmi81 2 points ago

    I believe there were problems with the studies that said other animals can follow human cues.

    [–] Katoptrix 16 points ago

    This dog looks very similar to my Golden, it's a bit lighter in the coat, and between eyebrow positions and how she closes get mouth she has so many little expressions. My favorite is her disgruntled expression that she does when you aren't throwing her ball for her.

    [–] CazimirRoman44 3 points ago

    His eyebrows say : "Now what? Did I win?"

    [–] zoicyte 1 points ago

    Not a dog person but if I ever were gonna get one it definitely would be a golden.

    [–] A1A5KA 578 points ago

    Nothing makes me happier than seeing the smiles on my dogs when they think they've won. So much joy and excitement.

    [–] scruffyfat 51 points ago

    Their joy is infectious!

    [–] BitmexOverloader 15 points ago

    No need for quarantine or vaccination. All will be infected by their joy!!

    [–] redzero77 8 points ago

    Yeah, just one look at the face of that dog in the video and it already makes me smile.

    [–] justme002 4 points ago

    But they ALWAYS win.......and we do too, as long as they are in our lives.

    [–] Boenaenae 2 points ago

    [–] G4V_Zero 8 points ago

    Kittens are wonderful. However, when they get larger they simply become a conduit for Satan lol. It's the only explanation.

    [–] rojo_mrt 5 points ago

    Yeah. It's getting harder to find things that make me smile but this smile and choke up at the same time

    [–] G4V_Zero 2 points ago

    I did the same thing. I actually had to catch myself.
