Do Dogs Cry?

Dogs have tear glands which constantly produce tears that wash the surface of their eyes.  These glands sometimes get clogged up causing a discharge under a dog's eyes that makes them look like they are crying.  When this happens, their hair under the eyes can get mats and cause eye irritations.  You can simply whip under the eyes to remove the sticky discharge and prevent this from happening.

Some studies say they do not cry to express their sad emotions by shedding tears, but I find this to be false.  My dog crys when he is sad and when I am away from home.  Dogs may be more sensitive than we can imagine.  

Remember to hug your dogs to show them you care.
