    Default Smiley Riley, the dog with a human grin

    Just like a happy youngster, birthday boy Riley wolfs down his cake and pulls a satisfied ‘doggy-smile’ for the camera.


    There’s a good boy: Riley grins for the camera as he celebrates his birthday.

    It looks like man’s best friend – or at least a pampered poodle – has finally figured out how to make the human gesture of happiness.
    Riley the dog almost pulled off the illusion while sitting at the table, wearing a hat and celebrating his first birthday with a cake. In fact, owner Maureen Ravelo, 22, from San Jose, California, said Riley’s face was so expressive that she frequently forgets he is a dog.
    ‘Riley always makes faces like this, and that’s the best part about him. He gives you a new facial expression every time that you forget he’s a dog,’ she said. He can also affect a ‘snobbish’ and a ‘curious’ look, she added.
    Even Riley – a bichon frise/poodle mix – seems confused about his identity. ‘The most unique part about him is he thinks he’s human like us,’ Ms Ravelo said.
    ‘He loves to sit up on chairs while we’re eating dinner and sleeps with us in bed.
    ‘Sometimes, I wonder if he realises he’s really a dog...’

    Ha! It's more like a doggy smirk.

    Too funny, and it's not just his smirk, it's his eyes too. He looks like a little boy dressed in a dog suit.

    Same here. I've always been a little frightened of animals with human characteristics...Like those freaking orange guys in Labyrinth

    Riley the smiley dog celebrates his second birthday with a toothy grin and a cupcake

    A year ago he bow wowed the world with his joyous grin and now Riley the smiling dog has done it again on his second birthday.
    Owner Maureen Ravelo couldn't resist throwing another party for her pet with amazing human-like expressions a year after he grinned through his first.
    Once again the happy hound celebrated at Maureen's home in San Jose and this year Riley seems to be throwing his head back and laughing.

    This year Riley, a bichon frise/poodle mix, celebrated his second birthday with a cupcake and his signature smile

    Such human traits in her bichon frise/poodle mix are no surprise to 23-year-old Maureen, who explains: 'Riley always makes faces like this, and that's the best part about him.
    'He gives you a new facial expression every time that you forget he's a dog.
    'Ever since he came into my family's life, we've always thought he had oddly human-like features, which have been captured on camera on more than one occasion.
    "'He looks like an old man!" My mom always says.'
    FLASHBACK: Riley the smiling dog at his first birthday party one year ago

    Owner Maureen calls Riley's expressions 'the best part about him'

    In the picture Riley is about to tuck into a cupcake sprinkled with treats, surrounded by balloons and party decorations.
    But one noticeable difference was the absence of the jaunty party hat he wore last year.
    Maureen says: 'Yep, no hat. He said big boys don't wear birthday hats. That or he bit me when I tried to put it on him.
    'He's a mix of a bichon frise and poodle. His playfulness comes from the bichon part and the attitude from the poodle.
    Maureen is also aware of who is top dog in her family.
    'I'm turning 24 this year and my mom apparently only throws Riley cool parties. Now I know which one of us she loves more.'

    No freaking way. That thing is too human. I bet it could open your drawers, get out a carving knife and fuck you up in your sleep.
