Isn’t it odd how we have the weirdest reaction to certain stimuli? Like knee jerks to doctors tapping on our knees, or closing our eyes when we sneeze.
Surprise, pups have this sort of reaction too! This Golden Retriever has the oddest facial reaction to being petted on the side of his face. The entire right side of his snout raises as he’s being pet! Luckily, he doesn’t seem to be in any pain of sort, and this looks to be a harmless, if quirky, reaction, rather than some muscle spasm. Certainly does make for an interesting look though!
It does bear nothing, however, that this should be a reminder for Moms and Dads to keep a close eye on their pups, and to get to know their quirks and behaviours well. You’ll get to know you pup up close and personal, and sometimes catching something abnormal may save their life!
