Puppy Dog Eyes: Real L Ife

  • Paul McCartney... though we are quickly moving into basset hound territory.
  • Ringo Starr. These days he keeps them hidden behind a dark-lensed pair of glasses, but they were probably his most noticeable feature in the old days (well, besides the huge schnozz).
  • Funnily enough, cats avert this in real life. If a cat ever opens its pupils really wide like Puss is in the page image, it means the cat is tense and/or excited (as in, just about to attack something — possibly you). The cat's way of enticing a human to do something does not involve much direct eye contact at all — they purr and rub their heads/bodies against you or nearby objects.
    • That is, unless they simply meow/howl at you until you cave in just to shut the cat up. This is a common problem for owners of Siamese and other very vocal breeds.
    • Unless you are this fluffy kitten.
  • Jared Padalecki has these as a trademark (at least among fans.) He actually had the nickname "Puppy" among Supernatural fans, despite being nearly six and a half feet tall. There's a reason for this.
