There’s something about dogs tilting their heads that’s super endearing. They look like they’re really trying to understand what you’re saying, or to hear something better. It’s just really appealing. I melt any time Jake tilts his big head.

If you type “Why do dogs tilt their heads” into any search engine, you’ll come up with pages of articles. Until recently there hadn’t been a website devoted to pictures of dogs doing this very cute little move. But now there’s DogsTiltingTheirHeads.com. It’s got pics of some pretty cute dogs tilting their heads this way and that. You may find yourself doing what I did and tilting your head while looking at the best ones.

In celebration of the site’s recently announced International Dogs Tilting Their Heads Day (June 29 – today!), DogsTiltingTheirHeads.com is putting out a special invitation to upload photos of your dog tilting his or her head. Go to the site, and upload away. Other people can add fun captions to it, and you can do the same for other photos. It’s fun over there, and with some awesome Dogster photos it will be even better!

But before we go, please take a moment to tell us if your dog tilts his or her head, why your dog appears to do so, and how it makes you feel. Inquiring minds (like the mind of the guy below) want to know!
