      That she's moronic because dogs actually do smile

      For a long time people thought dogs had no thoughts or no emotions and were simple input output machines that had instincts and were "conditioned", because that best aligned with protty fake-christianity's beliefs

    Between dogs it is normally a sign of agression. But I'm sure they understand that a smiling human is something positive

    https://www.sciencefocus.com/nature/translating-wolf-facial-expressions-could-help-us-understand-domesticated-dogs
    One finding that has stood out from the research is a remarkable similarity with certain interactions used by primates in similar social settings. These include the ‘jaw-drop’, in which a wolf or primate relaxes their lower jaw and pulls back the corners of their lips so it looks like they’re grinning without showing their teeth. It’s an expression both species use to signal playtime and, in wolves, is different to the submissive grin, seen in expressions of ‘friendliness’, where the mouth is shut.

    It’s these similarities with primate expressions that have led the Durham group to the theory that wolves’ communication skills may have played a key role in their domestication. Stone-age people and wolves could perhaps ‘talk’ to each other by using facial expressions.

    Thousands of years ago, human and wolves may have formed alliances partly because they could interact through a range of signals, which we can still see today, albeit in a diminished from, in our domestic dogs. It seems obvious when you think about how much we rely on people’s expressions to pick up on their meaning.

    “Dogs have more of a brachycephalic [shorter, flatter] face; long, flopped ears; long, pendulous lips; and a kind of weird hairdo that can hide their ears and eyes,” explains Hobkirk. “These are all features that can hinder communication. In breeding for looks, we’ve got rid of the more natural morphology that the dog needs.”

    TLDR:
    Dogs smile.

    But not YOUR dog. Your dog is too ugly to smile. Only husky, malinois, japanese akita, etc owners and other such gigachads can enjoy the company of a dog with facial expressions.

    i do believe that my dog does show that he is content by smiling. Not showing the teeth tho, just curling his mouth in a smile like pattern

    Baring your teeth at others is a sign of aggression to almost every other mammal. They can smile with their eyes

    Yes, dogs can smile and have at least two smiles with the same social functions as in humans

    They have the “joy expression” which is clearly a smile with a relaxed dog pulling the corners of their lips back a little and loosening their jaw
    And they have the nervous grin, also called the submissive grin which is what it should also be called in humans because the only people who do it are women and betas

        what happpens after these sorts of things in America? do the owners get charged with anything? does the dog get put down?

          Any number of things can happen depending on the state
          In this case the dog survived and I don’t think anyone was charged, the woman walking it didn’t even actually own it iirc

        Unironically for anyone watching this, the best way to get them to release is genuinely to jam something up their arse. No, seriously.

          I’ve heard this too. Either that or choking them out.

          This, and choke the fricker out with your arm or their collar if they have one. In more serious cases start bashing the dogs skull in with a rock or 2x4. ofc guns work better. I'm amazed how many people I see in these videos doing nothing or weakly hitting the dog.

          >when Golden retrievers relax

          I don't want to hurt or kill a dog but I stop caring once it attacks my dog or a person.

            is it a good idea to carry a knife when walking your dog, in case a pitbull attacks?

              not even other primates smile, showing your teeth is a sign of aggression

              Yes morons dogs smile. Unfortunately the public version of the article had its images replaced with ads.

              They also do a nervous grin that is not an aggressive snarl.
