Dogs have a secret weapon when it comes to getting what they want or getting out of trouble: puppy dog eyes. When our canine companions raise their eyebrows, making their eyes look wider, more helpless and baby-like, it seems the facial expression was designed to manipulate human emotions. And it turns out, that’s likely true, according to a new study in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
:snippity:
The researchers suggest that in the 20,000 years or so since humans and dogs began hanging out, evolutionary pressures have caused the LAOM muscle to develop in canines in order to communicate with their human companions. “They are very powerful animals in how they capture our hearts,” Waller tells The Guardian’s Sample. “We pay a lot of attention to faces, they are meaningful to us, and this expression makes dogs look juvenile and sad. It induces a nurturing response. It’s a cute factor.”

Our drive-in movie party showing Jaws is tonight but it's looking like it may get rained out. We'll have to have it indoors, which cuts down on audience participation. It also keeps the girls from attending, but they didn't get out of dressing up. I took their photo one more time. I added a prop cigarette to Gilda's Police Chief Brody costume, since he's a bit of a chain smoker.

A second chance
Twelve years ago, 47 dogs were rescued from Michael Vick’s dogfighting operation and allowed to live. They've enriched the lives of countless humans and altered the course of animal welfare.

Wapo tracked down all 47 dogs, many of whom are still alive with a loving family. Best to have tissues handy when you view their photos and read their stories. :crying: :lovestruck:

You know who would not have been given a second chance in Maybelot? Michael Vick. He would have been forever banned from professional sports.

There are a lot of folks who would be banned from professional sports in Maybelot — not because we don’t think they can be rehabilitated, but for every professional athlete there are a thousand waiting to take their place who are not going to abuse animals, people or drugs.

I can't think of a more congenial spot than Maybelot.
