Owner confronts dogs about eating shoe – their reaction is hysterical

Oddie the dachshund and his big gray pal may not be saying anything or pointing fingers, but their body language tells quite a story. It seems this pair knows something more about the destroyed insole than they would like their owner to know.
This appears to be a recurring theme for this these canines, as the owner and videographer also displays his mismatched flip-flops. Could this be another possible casualty of a doggy duo with unusual but consistent choices in non-designated chew toys?

But the longing looks may be deceiving, as animal experts say dogs hold little capacity for displaying guilt.
"There's been a number of studies done, and it's pretty clear that dogs don't feel or display guilt," veterinary scientist Doctor Susan Hazel told ABC. "It's not the way their brains work." Hazel said that instead dogs are extremely good at picking up clues from our behavior and acting empathetic.
Tracey Jones, a dog trainer, also told ABC that positive reinforcement is probably a better hope of improving behavior than seeking what may or may not be shame from a dog.
"Probably the dog's a bit confused more than anything, because it knows that you are upset but it doesn't know why," Jones said.
Whether they are just showing sympathy for their owner or true remorse, it's certain that these sweet puppy dog eyes get your attention. Pass this along to other dog lovers you know.
