Adorable photos of fluffy corgi butts have been breaking the internet. And regardless of our own preferred dog breeds, at least we can all agree that corgis have the cutest butts among the members of the canine kingdom. But their cutesy backsides aren’t the only feature that makes them stand out. With their expressive eyes, wacky smiles and sometimes clumsy movements, these dwarf dogs are indeed fluffy balls of happiness.
Dogs are probably a bit more expressive than most animals. Since they are constantly bred for so many generations, they tend to adapt to human behaviors and emotions better than other household pets. Dogs are able to display facial expressions especially when we’re looking at them. They smile when they’re happy, they frown when they’re upset and they look glum when they’re sad. Whatever emotions they’re trying to express, it’s always fun to see their amusing facial expressions. And we believe we’ve just found the most expressive dog from Okayama, Japan. Meet Gen, a corgi who makes whimsical faces that will surely brighten up your day.

That look of excitement he makes when his favorite favorite treats are shown in front of him. Or the amusing grin he makes when he poses for the camera. This fast-rising internet canine sensation only makes us wish to have our own cute dog too. One can only assume that this happy canine is living a healthy life. But behind Gen’s fascinating expressiveness lies a range of medical issues that he has to overcome every day of his life.
“Gen was born with hereditary chronic renal failure. It cannot be cured,” Gen’s owner said. “This disease causes Gen to experience polyuria (urinating more than usual), polydipsia (being thirsty all the time), anemia, malaise, and high blood pressure. To make things even worse, Gen was also born with other convulsive seizures prostatic hyperplasia.”
It’s hard to believe that this happy-looking dog is suffering from a chronic medical condition
Because of these health problems, Gen has to be on dialysis three times a week, get a blood test and echo test once a month, receive 6 types of medicine and get 4 injections on a regular basis. His owner also revealed that his special diet is centered on his chronic renal failure. Also, all his treats contain no additives and are made in Japan. Despite his miserable medical condition, this delightful dog seems to just enjoy life with his loving owners.
“A dog is family. Even if a puppy comes to you with many incurable diseases it has had since birth, it’s not a reason to let go of it. Yes, Gen will live a much shorter life than your average dog and yes, his treatment costs a huge amount of money, but we, his owners, will continue to give him [the best treatment we can] and enormous amounts of love. I think that sticking to your treatment and spending time with your loved ones are the secrets to having a great short life.”
