    "A man returns home to find a torn and empty bag of cat treats and decides to search his house for the culprit. He approaches the two dogs closest to the scene of the crime and the first dog seems indifferent to the empty bag. Then he turns his attention to the other dog, named Denver. The lab looks incredibly guilty and adorably refuses to make eye contact. In an act that is both sad and cute, Denver solemnly trots away after being told to go to the kennel."

    The man carries on the interrogation a little too long for me. I started feeling like the dog was being abused. Poor thing looked like it was crying.

    They have a way of looking guilty. The first day I brought my Dobie home from rescue, I had a plastic bag of food inside a paper bag and I set it in the middle of my pool table. Left for a few minutes and when I came back, my boy had a similar guilty expression. Couldn't figure out what he had done until I later looked inside the paper bag and found he had torn open the plastic bag and eaten the food, not disturbing the paper bag, leaving it upright. Looked at the pool table to try and see any scratches from him getting to the top of the table. Couldn't find any. Couple of days later I saw him jump - one instant all fours on the floor, next instant all fours on the table. He's the most athletic Dobie I've ever had.

    The first dog truly struck me as innocent while the other dog gave off such a clear air of guilt. The averted gaze was just hilarious.

    bad girl!

    I don't think it's abuse, I'm sure he doesn;t make a habit of doing it. It was just for the video

    oh my god...that was hilarious...I can't tell you how many times I have seen that look from my 3 year old lab...he knows when I am disappointed...

    I've always been told if you don't mark bad behavior immediately, dogs 'move on' and it would be pointless to address the issue later [even if it is immediate for the owner]...but when you see Denver [and my Berkeley], there seems to be an acknowledgment that something is "wrong"...

    thanks for sharing.

    Best thing is you only have to be 'disappointed'... no need to be 'angry'.. that only makes dogs defensive and afraid of the owner.
    Pretty smart those canines!

    I dozed off in front of the TV after eating and not quite finishing what was on my plate. When I woke up, my plate was completely clean, and my dog was asleep in the next room. I called him over, he had the guilty look and the real slow walk. I pointed to the plate and said "that's bad". He hung his head down. They know.

    My mom had a pit that would act similarly when she did something bad. She was such a sweetie.

    I meant to say "bearing its teeth." I've never seen a dog make that kind of expression. His eyes looked like he was ready to cry.

    She looked so sorry for doing it... I wanted to give her a hug, but she needed to learn I guess.

    TOO FUCKING CUTE!!!
