The other day I looked over at Phoebe and she was standing there grinning at me. I’m not talking about the typical little doggie grin where they show their teeth and it looks cute. This was a cat-that-ate-the-bird type of grin. A little too non-doggish for me.
She stopped and then smiled again. It made me feel uncomfortable when she did it about nine or ten times. Then she stopped and sneezed. In reality it looked like she had some kind of muscle spasm that just so happened to make it look like she was smiling.
I have not seen her do it since, but would kind of like to get to the bottom of it.
Has anyone else ever seen this happen?

Sounds to me like she had something irritating her nose, getting ready to try to sneeze, but not able too, hence the Lips pulling back form her mouth, aka “grin on her face”. You know those moments when you feel a sneeze coming and it just does not come. Nothing to worry about

Well that definitely explains it. She did start sneezing right afterwards. I guess it was just more apparent because she has those little pitbull wrinkles on her face. It just looked weird. I’m glad it’s nothing to worry about.
