Is This Dog Really Crying At A Gravesite?

The dog's owner believes that he was truly mourning her grandmother.

We have, once again, found ourselves in a heated online debate.

If the Internet has one hobby, it’s arguing over things. Is the dress blue and black or gold and white? Is Kanye West an innovator or an annoyance? And is this dog crying or does he just have a weird breathing condition?

A YouTube video posted a couple years ago that shows Wiley the “wolf-dog” possibly mourning at his owner’s grandmother’s grave is making yet another trip around the web, and for every person who believes that he’s weeping, there’s someone else who has suggested that he’s “reverse sneezing” or has nasal mites.

Sobbing or sneezing? You decide.

Sobbing or sneezing? You decide.

The person who posted the video under the name Sarah and the Wolves chose to interpret it as emotion (and her own emotions could be best described as the passive-aggressive kind).

“I can tell you that he has never done that before and hasn’t done it since,” she wrote in the YouTube description. “I may be anthropomorphosizing [sic] his actions but its how I’m choosing to deal with loss, so deal with it.”

So it’s up to you to decide what you see in these nine seconds. But don’t ever try to tell us the dress was white and gold.
