Don’t we just love taking pictures on Snapchat? Of course, we do. But do you know why? Yes, the filters and emoticons are so cute. However, these are not the main reasons why we use Snapchat the most. It’s basically because once we have sent a picture, no one can see it again. (Unless they took a screenshot and went out all the way to save it.)

But that’s not what we are going to talk about today. This post is not for you but for the dogs and their hilarious Snapchats. There are so many pet parents who have shared funny pictures of their dogs with the most savage captions.

Think about the naughtiest thing your dog ever did. For me, it’s the time my dog Ralph got into the kitchen cupboard while I was out and tossed a bag of flour all over the house. I was frustrated when I came home to a find flour ground into the carpet, but then Ralph looked up at me with those big, round eyes, flour dusting her adorable nose, her sweet, soft ears flopping over as she tilted her head…how could I stay mad at a face like that?

To answer the question, “Why are dogs so cute?” we have to start by identifying what cuteness looks like. Of course, we can all name cuteness when we see it (our own beloved pets being the cutest things in the whole wide world, of course). But there’s actually a recognized list of characteristics that determine “cute,” all fitting under the German word kinderschema, or baby schema

Even without a handy list of cuteness cues, most of us have an innate sense of what’s cute and what’s not. You look at a sweet, fluffy dog and you just know: that thing is cute. Or you might look at a snake and think: so not cute. Where the science of cute gets really interesting is when we start to consider why certain features tickle our squee response. It’s no accident that every cuteness cue is intrinsically tied to youthfulness and even helplessness.
