Do you ever wonder what your four-legged friend is thinking? Although we will probably never know for sure, every dog lover seems to think that they are Doctor Doolittle when it comes to understanding those puppy dog eyes. We’ve put together a comprehensive list so next time your dog looks up at you, you’ll know exactly what’s going on in their heads.

1. *Wags tail against everything in sight* “Yay the humans are home!”

2. “If I turn on my puppy dog eyes, I’ll definitely get some of my human’s food. Works every time.”

3. “Why does my human speak to me in that voice? Have they lost the plot?”

4. *Sticks chin in the air* “Learning tricks doesn’t matter when you’re really, really, ridiculously good looking!”

5. “What’s with the 50 different nicknames, human?”

6. *On a run with human* “Keep up human, run faster!”

7. “Why do humans wear costumes everyday but we are always naked?”

10. *Human pats me* “This is what I’m talking about!” *Stops patting* “What do you think you’re doing, human?!”

11. “I’m sick of eating these damn doggy biscuits everyday.” *dreams of a Sunday night lamb roast*

12. “I could lay on my expensive, comfy, doggy bed… but I’m going to lay right here on the ground instead.”

13. “What do you mean I’m not allowed on the couch?” *puppy dog eyes*
