Last week, in response to research revealing that gazing into our dogs’ eyes triggers an oxytocin boost, we asked you to send us photos of your puppy dog eyes. And boy, did you deliver! The response on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and over e-mail has been overwhelming. Thanks to all of you who shared your pictures with us—if this week’s issue of Science is a little thin, it’s because we’ve all been too busy poring over your pups!
Next week, Science staff will have the impossible task of choosing their 10 favorite contenders, each of whom will receive a (fake) Science cover featuring their #upwardfacingdog shot and be entered into a competition to win a Science swag bag. In the meantime, check out just a few of the amazing, adorable, and amusing entries we’ve received so far.
