Dogs’ Ears Help them Show Happiness

Many people think that when a dog wags its tail it’s a sign that the dog is happy.  In general that tends to be the case (though the type of wagging is more indicative of the mood).   But did you know that this isn’t the only way to physically tell if a dog is happy or not?  Scientists in Japan have made a new discovery about visual cues and dogs happiness.

Miho and a bunch of other dog lovers found that canine can show their emotions in much of the same way as their owners do.  Many times in good relationships when an owner appears, a dog’s ears will go down and their eyes will open wide.  It just might be time to rewrite the book on dog happiness!
