Just because I look guilty doesn't mean I did it!

Finally, science proves what we have been trying to tell our humans for eternity: just because we "look" guilty does not mean we did it!

Read about the new study in Science Daily:
"People see ‘guilt’ in a dog’s body language when they believe the dog has done something it shouldn’t have – even if the dog is in fact completely innocent of any offense."

The dogs that looked the "most guilty" according to the researchers were the ones that did nothing wrong but were scolded anyway! Not cool...

I feel a little bad for the pups that had to participate in the study. I hope they got lots of treats and bellyrubs afterwards.
