Anyone who’s done a pet photoshoot with me knows I tend to include at least one shot (maybe two) of their dog or cat with its tongue out. It’s something that’s always amused me in photos even though I know the pets aren’t really going for comic effect. Dogs do it when they’re excited or anxious to calm themselves down. Cats do it because they’ve been grooming and haven’t tucked it back in their mouth yet or because they’re yawning (which happens a lot in our house)
Granted, the real physiological reasons aren’t nearly as compelling as what we imagine them to be but I still like to collect tongue shots and do get a bit of a giggle out of them. Here’s my 10 all-time favorites for your viewing pleasure in no particular order. If you’re so inclined please weigh in on which of these you enjoy most and let me know your favorite in the comment below.
