Cute Labrador Loves To Smile On Cue

We all think that our dogs are just happy all the time, but with this sweet Labrador, you know when he's happy when you see his stunning smile!

When mom asks Bill the Labrador to smile, he is all too happy to oblige. Just look at that yearbook-worthy smile! Look at that face, so blissfully happy to be around people who love him. He is just too much.

So if you think your pooch is smiling back at you, you can’t be further from the truth. Dogs, and Labs especially, are signaling that they accept being the beta in the pack by pulling the corners of their mouths upwards, something we humans recognize as a smile.

Dogs show their happiness in their own particular way; they express emotion with their entire bodies. Not all dogs know how to smile and make it so human-like, but Bill here is a pro and his smile is as real as they come.

Usually when dogs are said to be “smiling" in the anthropological sense (out of happiness), it is when they have their ears in the relaxed state for the breed, relaxed eyes, and a big wide open mouth, with tongue hanging out, sometimes panting too. When they are relaxed, the body language of the dog who is smiling often contains some of the loose, wiggly signals we would see in a happy dog.

Whatever the reason is, Bill brought a smile to our faces too.
