Two doggy stories that made the headlines yesterday.

If a dog has eyes that seem to be telling you something or demanding your attention, it could be evolution's way of manipulating your feelings.

Researchers have found that dogs have evolved muscles around their eyes, which allow them to make expressions that particularly appeal to humans.

A small facial muscle allows dog eyes to mimic an "infant-like" expression which prompts a "nurturing response".
The study says such "puppy eyes" helped domesticated dogs to bond with humans.

Quote
Passengers have hit out at Newsnight host Emily Maitliss after her dog took up a seat on a train from Devon and Cornwall to London.

The journalist was seen on the Penzance to London train with her whippet Moody on Sunday afternoon, reports The Mirror .

One passenger said: “I was really surprised to see the dog on the seat. There wasn’t even a mat or newspaper underneath it.

Could it be that our Newsnight presenter wasn't to blame in any way for allowing the dog onto the seat (even, according to the rest of the story, for a few minutes when the train was quieter) ... but rather than she had been shamelessly manipulated by the dog into allowing him up?

What had people more concerned was the passenger behind her with their feet on the seat!

Neither dogs nor feet should be on seats.
