27 Smiling Dog Pictures that Answer the Question! Can They Smile?

Cute Dog Pictures

So, can canines crack a smile? Have you ever noticed that some canines do actually appear to grin? Do you think that it is an optical illusion or is there really a smiling dog.  I really do think they are smiling.  It usually happens when they are happy, just like us humans.  Nobody taught me how to smile, it’s just something that happens to my face when I’m happy.

If you are a non-believer and believe that a dog smiling is just an optical illusion, we might be able to change your mind.  Below are 27 pictures of smiling dogs, additionally there is one smiling dog video and a smiling dog GIF.  Feel free to judge for yourself.

Benefits of a Smiling Dog

Remember the first thing everyone says about smiling, it’s contagious!  So if you are around a smiling dog or looking at their pictures, then you should start smiling as well.

Have you read about all the benefits of smiling?    First, smiling can release endorphins.  In other words, smiling can make you feel good and improve your mood.  Smiling also helps with your immune system by producing more white blood cells.  Lastly, smiling can make you more approachable, trustworthy and attractive to others.  Then again, if that is true, then you will have to deal with more humans.  In reality, that last one might not be a “benefit” after all.

The cool thing about all this scientific research, it shows that these benefits are even realized if you fake the smile.  However, that will not be the case after you look at some more photographic proof which clearly shows them smiling.

So are you a believer now?  The above has to be the most compelling evidence that you have experienced.

Certainly those smiling dogs had to put a grin on your face.  I guess smiling really is contagious.  If you did or didn’t smile, maybe looking at life from a different angle is beneficial.  Regardless, I recommend, 20 Upside Down Dogs!  What about some wet pooches?  Have you celebrated you dog’s birthday yet?
