Do animals always smile?
Dolphins look like they always smile. So do some frogs. Or ask any pet owners and they’ll confirm that their pets smile. Isn’t it true that you sometimes look at a dog or cat and it gives you the impression that it smiles? Whatever the weather!
Pet owners spend as much on pets as they do on home entertainment, some $40 billion a year in the USA alone. And most would agree that it is worth every penny. Because pets really do not ask much in return. True friends for life.
You need to spend only a little time with an animal to realize that it has an unique personality. Animal psychologists, trainers and pet owners also agree that animals do have bad hair days or suffer from depression. Thankfully, it has been confirmed that animals do not commit suicide. So, just like human babies, animals do not smile always… but they seem to smile most of the time. (Human babies laugh on average 300 times a day, it is told, while adults laugh only 15 times a day.)
Not only do animals seem to smile a lot, they definitely know how to play… their whole life long. One of the most fascinating facts about animals is that they play until their last days. Now, that is something we humans could learn to do. And then, maybe, we’ll also smile more.
