They stare at us for numerous reasons, such as expressing affection or confusion, if they want something, or when they are reading our body language.

Their senses are heightened, and so they can see, smell and hear a lot more than we can. If ghosts were real, they would be among the first to know.

Salman Haqqi, pet insurance expert at money.co.uk, commented on 2021’s funniest questions:
“Man’s best friend always keeps us entertained with their funny and cute mannerisms, but some of these quirks are just plain odd.”
“Quintessential British questions like “can dogs eat baked beans?” and “drink tea?” have high annual search results due to the importance within British culture, and probably the frequency of occurrence.”
“Another popular query Brits question is why their adorable dogs eat faeces. It may gross us, humans, out seeing it, but for our pets, it allows them to understand the marker (as well as enjoying the taste), similarly to when they sniff each other’s behinds.”
