Pets Make Eye ContactYou all have experienced that! It is said that eyes are windows of the soul. That’s the part of the body that never lies. The message conveyed through eyes has the power to go deep in our hearts with ever-lasting impact.  The same is true when a pet looks at his master with those beautiful eyes.

It’s a kind of coded message, loaded with great feelings that only the master and his little comrade can understand. Feeling of trust, care and a belief, that his master would protect him.

2. Your Pet Following You Around

Pet Following You Around

Pets, particularly dogs are man’s best friend. They are the species, which has bonded with humans the most, over several thousand years. You as a pet parent might have experienced that they at times, follow you even to the bathrooms. They have a tendency not to let you go away from their eyes.

Another aspect which we can be learnt from that trait is that no matter what the circumstances are they will be around you. If, the path is once chosen by the master, the little comrade will follow him at all odds.

3. The Cute Tail Wagging Of Your Pet

Although tail wagging does not always mean that the pet is showing signs of happiness or he is relaxed, it can be because of some fear or insecurity. But, in the current context, you might have seen your pet wagging his tail when you present him his favorite toy to play or a chewing object to exercise his mouth tissues.

4. Dog Expression: When Caught Him Red Handed

You are left with no idea whether to scold him or pour love on him for that innocent expression.

5. When My Dog Smiles

But, dogs, they are unique creatures who at times gives facial expression that resembles a smile but actually they may be conveying something else. So task for you is to find out in which language does your furry pal smiles?
