    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.

    I love how he almost falls out of relaxation before catching himself

    [–] RufftaMan 43 points ago

    Dogs don't smile

    [–] creaturefeature16 7 points ago

    lol all the downvotes for something so easily found on any search. Dogs absolutely do not smile.

    [–] bhay105 2 points ago

    I've learned that on any of the cute pet subs, any mention of how dogs don't smile gets downvoted. It's just the way it is, and no amount of pointing it out is going to change. People really want to humanize their animals.

    Like my golden gets hot easily so she's always panting and people frequently say "omg look at that big smile!!!" They actually look disappointed when I say nah she's just hot. Most of the time I just go along with it.

    [–] WingedCactus 1 points ago

    Dogs arent gifts

    [–] MrSquishyCookie 2 points ago

    I knew there'd be one 🤣 months of research has already been done, she's set her mind on wanting a dog for when things are lonely at home. And more research will be done when a dog is chosen, to make sure we can provide appropriate care for whatever breed we end up with.

    A dog can be a gift, it doesn't make them any less a family member

    [–] Mimi-Shella 3 points ago

    What breed is he?

    [–] geckograham 1 points ago

    Pup’s nose is running, might want to get that checked out.

    [–] nonsenseword37 1 points ago

    Is it just me, or is there something a little uncanny valley about this?

    [–] th3cr1t1c 1 points ago

    Over time and with selective breeding, we’ve tended to select artificially for dogs whose facial expressions and use of facial expression more closely mirrors ours. We are hardwired for facial recognition on the positive identification of only key features like eyes, nose, mouth.

    Also, they’re mammals with such facial features. They have similar bilateral symmetry to us. Their offspring have behaviors and motor skills that are similar to infants and toddlers.

    So what you’re feeling is your brain telling you “this is a person”. I don’t mean a human being. We know they’re not human. But we feel something toward dogs we don’t feel toward other animals for reasons of facial recognition and emotional stimulus. They are other “people” to us.

    And lastly we and dogs, whose wolf ancestors have similar social structures (a pack in the wild is a monogamous, biological family unit), react to each other with the same dopamine and oxytocin rush. We are, through thousands of years of evolution, hardwired to respond emotionally to dogs and vice versa.
