20 Dogs Give Their Best ‘Puppy Eye’ Expressions

By Devan McGuinness |

We’ve all heard (and likely used) the term “puppy eyes”. I never really understood where the term came from, but understand it to be used to reference a facial expression that’s supposed to elicit some compassion.

Then I started looking at puppy photos and I totally started to see where the cute term came from. I never realized just how much a dog could say with just his eyes but man, it’s a lot! As a cat-person, I am used to my furry pet giving me one look — usually uninterested or angry. I will say that looking at these sweet dog faces, I wanted to give them whatever they were asking for … and then learn how to do those eyes myself, that could come in handy!

    “I’m watching you.” It’s always the cute ones you have to look out for. :)

    The “Please, I’ll stop!” face looks like “I’m sorry” to me. You got the experessions “Stop. Seriously!” correctly as well as the “I’m sorry!” one right. The “Wanna Play?” one is really “What are you doing?”. The “Play?” one doesn’t look like he wants to play. And the “So Bored” one looks like “I’m sad”. The “Please! I’ll stop!” one is really a look of fear. The “What Ya Doing?” looks like a “Can we?” look. I know dog expression, I’ve owned 4 in my lifetime.
