Took you long enough
The first thing that comes to mind when looking at this photo is one word (or sound): “awww.” We can imagine this poor puppy with his miserable expression standing there helpless all day, yearning for the couch, nervously wiggling his tail and waiting for his owner to return. We think he deserves some kind of compensation for his good behavior.
Perhaps the most common myth about dogs is that wiggling their tail is a sign of happiness. That’s a mistake; while it is a sign of excitement, it isn’t necessarily a good kind of excitement. Sometimes, dogs wiggle their tails when they are anxious or stressed. In this case, since his wiggling seems to be rapid, it might suggest distress – which matches the look on his face!
