  • 1 of 7

Most people who have interacted with animals can see that we share many traits with them–for example, emotions. Even if there are skeptics, pet owners and animal lovers know that animals, like us, have feelings like guilt, fear, and excitement.

Of course, animals have different ways of expressing these emotions (when’s the last time you saw someone get so excited they wagged their bottom and stuck out their tongue?), but sometimes, even that line seems to be blurry. And sometimes we just want to see our pets act like us, because, well, some of us can’t help it.

For instance, have you ever seen a dog smile? I mean, really smile?

My terrier Cheyenne,smiles when she is happy,and when I enter the room,even if I only left for a second.Redheard the pit,smiles alot too,she loves my brother and nephew,and can't stop when she sees them.Even Sweety the cat gets in on the smiles when I come home or when she wakes up,or wants attention.They all smile at each other as Sweety cleans them.People that have Pits know that they love to smile,its part of them.that wide grin.
