Is It Love?…Why Dogs Stare at Their Owners
I remember the joke that wishes everyone could like you as much as your dog. So someone at Yahoo asked the strange question what’s with the staring?? Their answer…”It’s not hard to imagine why a loyal dog might stare devotedly at his master. It’s the stuff of Old Yeller, White Fang and Lassie — starers, all. But some dogs take staring to extremes, following their owners around with baleful eyes as if expecting links of sausage to fly from their human’s fingertips.
Let’s face it: Dogs love their owners, but when they stare expectantly, it’s not usually because they’re trapped in a reverie of devotion. Rather, it’s because they’re thinking they might get something. And usually, that “something” involves a tasty snack.
Now the question why do cats stare at you. No need for Yahoo. I can tell you they think you’re strange…and have the ability to run a can opener. So in essence we’re back to food again.
That said ladies I think we can do some math here, if you are longing for that long loving stare from your guy (guys and dogs not being that different) I think we may have the inside track here…Food. I’m guessing bacon would do it. Good luck with that.
