Dogs don't look at you because they're hungry, they're actually expecting you to solve a Rubik's cube


Dog lovers are no stranger to that specific glance.

This WET-NOSED look has typically been assumed to be from adoration or curiosity. Scientists for years referred to this as ‘canine food-based anticipatory peering.’

Until now, that is.


It's been recently discovered that when your pooch locks peepers with you,

they're actually expecting you to solve a Rubik's Cube.


While dogs are extremely intelligent emotionally, they lack the basic understanding that it is not possible to solve a Rubik's Cube without physically holding a Rubik's Cube. This detail is irrelevant when your dog looks at you expecting you to solve a Rubik’s Cube.

Skeptics of this scientific unearthing have brought up many valid challenges. Recent debates have centered on dogs colorblindness. In fact, dogs can see colors, but only in sticker form on plastic puzzle cubes (h/t)

Note: While canine food-based anticipatory peering has been disproveN as food-specific, dogs still do require nutrition. Please continue feeding your dog(s) while solving Rubik's Cubes for their entertainment and delight.
