    I'm afraid that's a very unhappy dog who's trying desperately to diffuse the situation :(
    "Grinning" and lip-licking and avoiding eye contact are all calming signals to try and show that she's stressed! The popularity of this video worries me a little.

    I've seen this one before and can't bring myself to watch it again :( I completely agree with Thorne I'm afraid.
     


  5. I agree. The dog is practically baring its teeth it is 'grinning' so much - and look at how the poor dog slinks away when the owner orders it to the 'penalty box'. Looks like a nervous dog to me. I'd be very happy to be proven wrong though :)

    And apparently she's only six - she looks a lot older and is overweight.

    That makes interesting reading. I do feel guilty for posting it and thinking it was a light hearted clip.....obviously i wouldn't have posted it knowing the dog was showing signs of distress.
    This forum is very informative and i have learnt something new this eve!
