creepy or cute-- Riley the smiley dog

This is a picture of Riley... and it has not been doctored.

Riley is a bichon frise/poodle mix who seems to grin with both his mouth and his eyes.  According to his owner, Maureen Ravelo, of San Jose CA, Riley has such humanlike facial expressions, she frequently forgets he is a dog.  In addition to his grin, Riley also flashes a snobbish and a curious look.

Ms. Ravelo said, "The most unique part about him is he thinks he’s human like us,... He loves to sit up on chairs while we’re eating dinner and sleeps with us in bed... Sometimes, I wonder if he realizes he’s really a dog..."

Cute as he is, I think that having a dog look at me like that would creep me out.

That breed is one of the more intelligent breeds. He definitely is one happy camper in that picture. I have seen dogs smile with little prompting. I have this great picture of me and a friend's long coat Alastian that I took with the cam on my laptop, Beauregard definitely smiled at the webcam, and I just could not help laughing myself in the picture. Wish i could post that picture on here somehow.
