    Smile Like You Mean It

    [YOUTUBE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=991ugfaioiQ&[/YOUTUBE]


    The same amazing Japanese TV show that brought us the Columbo dog and the pussy with brows continues to report the important news. They bring us this story of the dog who smiles like she just took a loooooong hit from a joint. I know she's most likely growling at those dumb bitches for chaining her to a pile of crap, but let's just believe she's smiling. Let her owners believe it too so she can continue to lure them in her with "smile" and then bite their finger tips off when they least expect it. That's what they get for keeping her prisoner in front of a junky ass garage.

    As cute as the smile is, I feel unsettled that the dog is chained up. Not to mention, I noticed the flattened ears trembled when the dog smiled.
    Rock the fuck on!

    There seems to be a lot of crap in that garage, so it might be better for the dog...in case he/she knocks something over and gets hurt.

    Poor thing. I bet it never gets to run and play like a normal dog. I just hate to see animals chained up to languish in the backyard. Why have the dog if that's all you're going to do with it?

    It's an adorable dog, but it looks more stressed than happy when the owner approaches.

    I also HATE the way it's chained up.

    (s)he's a cutie.
    i don't see anything wrong with the fact that he's chained up (it's not like he's alone, his owner is right there, a lot of people probably stop by everyday, kids can come & pet him, ...) but i do think that the chain needs to be longer.

    It's called "submissive grinning" and it's not necessarily a happy thing, it's done as a sign of appeasement.

    Some people, rightly or wrongly, apply their own interpretation of dogs' body language. For example, the submissive grin of a self-effacing terrier may be interpreted by owners as a smile. The owners laugh and reward the behavior, which is thus conditioned and will later occur on cue; "Have you seen Bonzo smile?" an owner might ask her friend. On hearing the word SMILE, Bonzo then approaches, head and neck bowed and body wiggling, as he displays a super-reinforced submissive grin that looks for all the world like a human smile. Because everyone is happy about this novel event, the smile even appears to occur in context.
