Can dogs look up?

Watching the movie “Shawn of the Dead” and one of the running jokes is the question whether or not dogs can look up. One of those absurb urban things that hang around. Instinct tells me yes! I’m sure my two dogs look up at me when I’m stood above them, both in standing and sitting positions.

The question comes up on the Yahoo! Answers site, the reaction is a yes.

I’ll end this short silly post with a quote from Churchill:

“I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.”

Swicki: Can dogs look up


I’ve seen my dogs watch aeroplanes go over several times… so that certainly answers that then :)

    Dogs are sentient beings and can look, hear, feel, smell, love and show fear. So, of course they can look up :)
