Take a look at the background... that dog could be at the warehouse or shop... that the dog owner took the dog to work since no one watch the dog...  that's the reason the owner put the dog on chain so the dog won't wander off. That they have garage doors open...

 

 

this video was analysed to death when it first appeared and gained popularity.  i am just repeating what dog experts saw.   

normal people just see a smile and think happy dog, which is far from truth in this case.

 

also the tail wagging. the tail in this case is wagging really low... with combined with other behavior points to fear or anxiety of the person filming this.

 

that is all i remember from the analysis, as i am not a specialist myself, but now i dislike the pictures of smiling dogs, since they smile for completely different reasons then we do,

and i don't like to think that the animal is possibly scared or abused...

 

 

also, if this was an owner bringing dog to work,  they would have used a leash!  not a chain...        

how many happy dog owners use heavy duty metal chain? i tell you.  NONE.

they would have just tied the regular leash around something, and that would be it.

Got to be honest, I didn't notice the chain until you mentioned it. :(

 

To make up for my mistake, here's a picture of an actual happy dog:

Though observing tale wags in Akitas is hard :laugh: or any curled tail type for that matter

I understand that.

 

Most junkyard places have the watchdogs out in the yard at night and put them inside or on chain during the day... so the customers won't get bitten by the dog.

Since your avatar is technically a dog, you should vote dogs. :p

I see that you secretly prefer dogs more because your dog appears in more of the images and even gets its own selfie. :rofl:

 

Basically you should vote for dogs is what I'm saying.
