Default What part of your dog...

Is their most expressive part? What tells you immediately what they're feeling?

Both Traveler and Ridgie Didgie Doo are extremely expressive with their body (and voices) but in both one thing seems to stand out above all else.

For Traveler it's his ears. Being as giant as they are it's inevitable.

And for Didgie it's her eyes.

And Kaylee it's her tail

If it's curled she's happy

Hmmmm... Her face lol. You just have to look at her to know what mood she's in. Big dopey grin vs sad glum faces etc

Charlie and Lincoln I go by their tails. Lincoln wags his tail more when being naughty. Charlie you can tell her level of happy by her wpm (wags per minute). The others usually just their posture or ears.

For Bubbles, it's her tail, with up and over the back being happy/confident.



For Pen, it's his mouth.



And for Kimma, it's really just her general body posture.

Summer- eyes and grin. And tail. Haha, I am cheating... Her tail goes a million miles an hour when she's happy/excited.

I dunno. I kinda want to say his whole body. His face is very expressive, of course, but I can tell a lot by his tail and posture, too...

Liberty's most expressive characteristic is his voice. Whether he's "wrrr"ing in excitement or huffing unhappily he is ALWAYS talking.

Mammoth's is definitely his mouth. He purses his lips when he's upset/confused and absolutely grins when he's happy.

Bailey's is his paws. His emotions cause him to leap or skitter or tilt around the house in a mostly undignified fashion
