Life through the eyes of a pampered Bulldog.

My mom... I tell ya ... sometimes........ You see, mom found on doggie news.com that there is proof that when dogs are panting that they are happy!!! Duh mom I could have told her that ... she never listens!!!!
An article published by All Headline News says that panting hard is a sign that dogs are happy.Patricia Simonet, development and program coordinator for Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service, started researching dog sounds in 2001, while a professor at Sierra Nevada College. Simonet and her students recorded dogs playing at a shelter. They isolated the growling, whining, barking and the panting sound she now calls laughter, reports The Associated Press.I've come to understand this after having played with my two dogs. I'm sure others have too. Though not all panting is strictly laughter, there is still the exhaustive type of panting. but ultimately they are happy!!
See thats why everytime I play with dad or I play with zoey no matter the temperature I always pant!!!
silly mom, shes so amused with such obvious stuff!!!
