To stay serious.

Stay gold, puppy boy.

MFW I quietly fart in the car and wait for everyone else to start blaming each other

No they’re just panting to regulate body temperature.

Does anyone know if dogs are actually happier when they make this face with their mouth open?

It's like the boss has him in the office and is giving him some long corporate sounding speech about performance that ends with the good boy being offered a promotion

Hard to with the socs

Roll the windows up and lock them.

That's not very exciting. Wait til I tell the news station that it's actually because they love you, and are laughing! More at 8!

panting which can be to lower temp or due to nervousness

Cause it looks sweet when a dog does it because dogs are good fellows and always seem like their smiling and it’s to cause joy in us when maybe we don’t get enough in our day.

when you run around, you'll sweat, whether it's freezing or boiling (assuming you're wearing clothing appropriate for the climate)

don't laugh don't laugh don't laugh

It's the privilege of the driver to create the rolling dutch oven.

Yup, doggos do not like prolonged eye contact. This one's starting to sweat from nervousness.

Panting does not mean the dog is being goofy or is happy or is emoting. I don't know why this annoys me so much when Reddit does this, but it does.

He went from liam neeson to the joker .

Are we 100 percent sure this is the only other reason? Cause my dog could spend an hour in the snow and still come back still panting.

Many do. Alternatively, my roommates lab will straight up stare are at you until you look at him and then maintain eye contact for long periods of time and then come lick your pant leg.

My dad does this

He's a new dislike troll. Shhhhh, don't feed it:)

Looks like the pup from the intro to goosebumps

The dog could be seeing that as a kind of power struggle for position of "top dog". Staring a dog in the eyes is a challenge (in the dogs mind), so they're staring back and challenging you. Then they give in, and lick you as a sign of submission. Possibly.

Dogs are very much pack animals and want the toughest animal to rule the pack. If they think they're tougher than you then they'll happily take the role of leader, because it's best for the whole pack. A lot of dog owners are not the pack leader in their dogs mind, and that's where a lot of dog behavioural issues arise.

The dog in this gif is not challenging though, they're just becoming uncomfortable at the staring, and the panting is a tell of stress. It's like if you're just doing your own thing and the Rock suddenly got in your face and started staring into your eyes from a foot away. I'd start to sweat lol.

Yeah man your dog's a weirdo.

Doggy doggy what now?

I wasn't expecting an "outsiders" reference. You stay golden, pony boy.

My outsiders thread got ruined >:(

but they look like they smiling and is cute dont mad

Always upvote golden doggo!

I think their natural state is happiness.

Dogs only produce sweat on areas not covered with fur, such as the nose and paw pads, unlike humans who sweat almost everywhere. However, they do have sweat glands, called apocrine glands, associated with every hair follicle on their body.

This is a completely discredited misunderstanding of dog behaviour based on a 1940s study, itself a completely discredited misunderstanding of wolf pack behaviour.

Dog Training and the Myth of Alpha-Male Dominance

Debunking the Alpha Dog/Dominance Myth

Canine Dominance: Is the Concept of the Alpha Dog Valid?

The 'alpha dog' myth is leading countless owners to mistreat their dogs

A lot of dog owners are not the pack leader in their dogs mind, and that's where a lot of dog behavioural issues arise.

In fact, a lot of dog behavioural issues arise because of negative reinforcement training techniques used because of the encouragement and perpetuation of the myth that people need to be the 'alpha dog'.

edit: Just beaten by u/Couch_Crumbs!

Wtf are you talking about

Shhhhhhh

I’ve met a few girls at parties that also exhibit this behavior.

Yup and doggies dont sweat. But they still seem to smell weird after running all day

I always ask “Do you smell popcorn?”

Nope

Before and after being told "Who's a good boy?"

Bonus points if you flip the heater on full blast

Lol okay Circumventing-a-ban

I'm going to do it the next time I'm driving with him

From Bad Cop to Good Cop

i was legitimately waiting for the eyes to turn yellow

I mean, Hitler thought he was right too...

While in reality he was far-right

I don't think he's stressed either, but panting usually isn't an indicator of how a dog feels at all.

Awesome.

Edited for super good clarification.

/sub/totallynotrobots

this is his audition tape for the twizzlers commercial

My dog likes to look me in the eyes and burp.

The theory I've read is that when they "smile" like this they are emulating the expressions of the humans they are around when they are happy. I see it as a fake smile that comes from a real emotion of empathy and love for their person they are with. My dog does this all the time.

Perhaps their "smile" or appearance of a "smile" is a selectively bred trait.

I was really hoping this would be a thing

dog became nervous. what am I missing?

I'm with you. It doesn't matter but it makes me angry.
