I read something one time that said as dogs have become more domesticated, their eye muscles have evolved to show more white around them to appear more human-like and more expression around the eyebrows. This connection leads to more food and better treatment by their owners.

I don't know how true that is but it kind of feels true. When I look at my dog and he gives me "puppy dog eyes" the white part is very visible and he almost looks like a cartoon character. Then when he's in trouble, man those eyes tell a story. And he's not really even sorry because he will go right back and do it again. Turd. All I know is that he's dang cute and it's hard to get after him.

And when my cat feels squirrely, his eyes get big and round. You know to stay away because he's ready to play and has no limits.
