From Kaw’s Desk:
Body language is important because a lot of our emotions and intentions are broadcast by non-verbal communication. You assume a dog is friendly because it’s mouth it hanging open, it’s tongue is lolling around, it’s ears are up and there’s a sparkle in it’s eyes, usually accompanied by some tail wagging. They can’t talk and yet they get their message across.
Standing by the door: “Hey human, we need to go outside or you’re going to get a mess on the floor.”
Staring at you while you’re doing something: “Hey hairless wonder, pet me/I’m lonely. You’re lonely and need to pet me.”
Head flopped onto the floor and a sigh: “You disappoint me, biped.”
Food bowl sent careening across the floor: “Fill this!”
We do the same thing, but without the tail wagging. (Although some of us do have some wag in our walks.) It’s very important in our writing. So here’s some helpful stuff for you!
