Can a dog smile?

It was a glorious winter day

With snow, sun and sparkles on the trees.

That made me smile.

A long walk with friends

To chase

— That’s what made Simmie smile.

After two hours of running around

And enjoying the scenery —

We were all tired and happy.

(That’s my Ruby on the right as you look at the photo and Simmie on the back left

With Jessie, Ruby’s puppy, standing in front of him.)

  8. Underbara bilder ❤
    … och visst kan hundar le! Hundar ger uttryck för känslor och vi kan läsa dem precis som hundarna läser av oss. Personligen tycker jag att framförallt ögonen hos hundarna visar mycket känslor. Och at det är lyckliga hundar på de härliga bilderna går inte att ta fel på 😉 Tack för vackra och glädjefyllda bilder.

    //Piia-Liisa

    P.S Titta gärna in på min blogg och framförallt på bilderna av FM-hundarna. Hundar visar känslor! Titta gärna på mamma Fatzy. Visst kan man se både stolthet och glädje hos henne? Och även den små valparna uttrycker känslor. (https://wordpress2202.wordpress.com/2016/03/06/fm-fatzy-med-valpar/)
    PS 2. I am sorry that I write in Swedish. I do that because I am not so good at writing in english. I can read, but writing is hard for me (as You can see)

    The behavior of dogs have always been studied. I do not know know if they can smile but I know that can interpret our emotions.
    Beautiful photos, as always.
