The Cutest Guilty Dogs Showing Their Shame

You don’t have to be a pet owner to appreciate the look of shame and guilt on a dog’s face when something is wrong. When you see those infamous “puppy-dog eyes” — the big, wide-open, sad-looking even-seemingly apologetic gaze — it’s easy to tell that something is up, even if you haven’t seen the associated muddy footprints, half-eaten food, or torn up couch and clothes. As man’s best friend, pets get to know you pretty well, so they know what you consider acceptable. When they have committed one of any number of what they know is an unpardonable sin, their guilty glances often give them away.
