  • Here is another typical serious face from Solan. .
Before summer, we got a few comments/messages from people asking why Solan always looks so serious on photos. While lots of our vacation shots depicts Solan seemingly smiling,  it has little to do with his happiness levels. He is outside in hot weather and is panting from heat or from exercising.
.
I feel it is important to bring this up as a dog panting and its body language can perhaps be misinterpreted by some people as friendliness. Don’t be fooled by doggy smiles, you should always ask before approaching. You never know, the dog could be reactive.
.
That being said, I do think dogs can smile, when they are happy or excited about going out for a walk or getting food, or seeing us after having missed us for a few hours.
.
In this photo, he is relaxed, not unhappy, though he was a little annoyed with the wind and has mild discomfort, likely from the sound. Each dogs have their own body language and as owners we must do our best to try to recognize what they are communicating with us. I find Solan is particularly expressive with his eyes and it helps me tell along with the rest of his demeanour if he is happy/excited or afraid, grumpy or wants something or sometimes just trying to manipulate me (he can be good at that).
.
We live in a country with a colder climate, Solan doesn’t pant much when it is cold outside unless he has been running for a long time out skiing or playing with dog friends. I’m not always there with a camera to capture it, nor can i make him smile on command. I assure you, it doesn’t mean he isn’t happy. 🤗

  • Bedtime? You mean Playtime! 🤸‍♂️🤹‍♀️🐕😂 No matter how tired I am, I must play before I go to bed 🎪 This is Jooter, my squeaky elephant (named after my friends Judy and Scooter who gave him to me @mollyg_judydog 😉). Do you play before you go to sleep too? [UPDATE: some of you are worried about Teddy 🧸. He’s still my best friend and he doesn’t get jealous ❤️ He’s not allowed upstairs as we would keep each other up all night giggling and playing pranks😂] #bedtime #playtime #bedtimeroutine #tootiredtosleep #seriousdog #playfuldog #borderterrier
