Eye Contact

 In Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know by Alexandra Horowitz I read that dogs make eye contact with humans more than any other animals. Through domestication, they've learned that looking at our faces gives them information, guidance, and basically gets them what they want. This leads dogs to being the masters of looking pitiful, as you can see in this photo of Teddy mid-bath.
