Dog talking or singing: videos that are gaining popularity on the Internet
On the Internet, “funny” and “touching” videos featuring animals are gaining in popularity, which in reality turn out to be, unfortunately, not so funny.
Here is a video of a bulldog who is either singing or talking. But if he sings, then his song is very sad. Because the dog clearly does not feel very comfortable, some of the stress signals listed below testify to this.
Or, for example, one of the many videos about smiling dogs.
Some of these dogs really demonstrate, most likely, learned behavior in the form of a "smile", but most, if you look closely, show signs of discomfort and stress:
The so-called "whale" eye when proteins are visible.
“Shimmering tongue” - a short licking of the nose.
Turning the head.
Drawn corners of the lips.
That is, most dogs on the video do not just not smile - they are clearly uncomfortable. By the way, you can train your observation skills and write in the comments which of the dogs really smiles and who is under stress.
