While many people think that dogs do not have feelings, a lot still believe that they actually have a range of emotions.
National Geographic even notes that scientists find it hard to grasp the idea that animals have feelings, though owners understand that their pooches have emotions.
The confusion may stem from the fact that humans use language to label feelings.
But you can always tell if your dog is happy, sad, annoyed, or anxious. Just look at their facial expressions. There are some dogs that have a consistent look on their faces, like this Shiba Inu named Chester.
Chester has been charming people on the Internet through his perpetually grumpy expression.
Getting to know Chester
Chester is an old dog. He is roughly around 65 years old in human age. And just like many old people, Chester is actually quite grumpy.
Kirby Kaufman, Chester’s owner, got him back in 2017. He adopted the Shiba Inu from the Nebraska Humane Society. Currently, Chester is already thirteen years old.
When Chester started living with Kirby, many of his friends would ask why Chester always looked angry. Some of his friends even noticed that the dog looked like a fox. However, others would call the Shiba Inu a demon dog.
A typical Shiba Inu attitude
Kirby said that Chester was a drama queen. He was very clingy and grumpy. He loved being petted — only if he allowed you to.
Kirby added that Chester was many grupmsters aspired to become. His dog, according to him, represented the rage people have on the inside.
However, it must be noted that Shiba Inus are good-natured and bold. They are confident and strong-willed.
They are loyal, so they tend to be overly protective of their owners. And because some of them can be clingy, it is important to consider certain lifestyle factors before getting a Shiba Inu.
If you have a busy lifestyle and you spend a lot of your time outside, your Shiba Inu may feel sad and stressed.
