    "I think most dogs and some cats do smile at a human they like. Dogs are easy though, compared to cats whose 'smile' with eachother is a slow blink. I have learned to smile with a closed mouth at my cats (showing teeth is a threat with them) and now dogs look at me funny, like a closed mouth smile is unnatural to them."

    "All dogs can smile. Their facial structure is just different from human, which makes it hard for humans to recognize as a smile automatically. One can learn to detect dogs' facial expressions with some practice, though. (Same with cats, rats and basically any other mammal with enough facial motility - all mammals share the same set of facial muscles and instinctive reactions involving them, apparently it developed early in their evolutionary history.)"
