A cute puppy:
Cute in the same way that the airbrushed models on magazine covers are beautiful.
Thanks Greg, I needed that.
Don’t kid yourself guys: everyone knows atheists don’t have feelings and are therefore unable to distinguish cute from evil. Nice try, Mr. Laden. We’re on to you.
I’m guessing the head has been made larger, the eyes are made larger and the features of the face have been softened. Cuteness is a biological response.
Wow. That is the ugliest puppy I have ever seen. Poor thing.
It looks like some deranged photoshopist hybridized a cat and a dog.
@ppnl — you think this was photoshopped? Go out and see some real puppies; they are *crazy* cute. The “cute-response” features are incredibly exaggerated. Why go to the work of photoshopping when all you need is a camera and a bunch of puppies? See dailypuppy.com or somesuch for examples of amateur photos.
Human newborns have nothing on most animals’ little ones.
It is two things, chiefly:
1) The angle of the eye causes the white to show, which ever so slightly anthropomorphizes they expression in the eyes;
2) The dark smear on the muzzle (which may or may not have been digitally added), clearly mimicking a smile.

That, and it’s a cuddly, soft, fuzzy widdle baby. Awwwwwww…
