20 Dogs Give Their Best 'Puppy Eye' Expressions


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!
