When I come home from work and find my curtains shredded or a hairball on my bed, I shoot an angry glance at my cats, but they don`t express any remorse, and look at me with total indifference.
But when I find my shoe torn to shreds my pooch, Mandy, looks as guilty as sin. Dogs would make horrible poker players, while felines would make a killing at the game.
Mandy looks guilty even when she hasn`t done anything wrong, guilt is their default expression.
We love canines because they are so transparently honest, they can`t get away with anything.
There are a gazillion and one videos on YouTube depicting dogs acting as guilty as hell:
Visit your local animal shelter, and you will fall in love with a guilty-looking puppy that you won`t be able to resist from adopting.
