It goes beyond the wagging tail or the slurping face-lick. Canine happiness can be expressed in many ways. In fact, our dogs show their love toward us in a variety of ways (here are 14 ways cats show love, too!).
We should think about our pets’ happiness every day, not just on special occasions like Valentine’s or Mother’s Day. It doesn’t take much to treat them with love.
It’s important to remember that pets are individuals with unique personalities. They’re like furry snowflakes, with no two alike. Here are some examples of how dogs show us they’re happy.
How do your dogs show happiness? How many kinds of tail wags do they have (check out the Ask Amy below). Do they play a special game, or beg attention, or dream with their furry toes a-twitching as they chase dream squirrels? Do tell!
