About

Dogs with Eyebrows is a photo fad in which dogs are photographed with eyebrows drawn on their faces.

Origin

While some dogs are born with eyebrow-like colorization, the fashion trend for pet dogs originated from East Asia in the early 2000s, as evidenced in an article published by the Chinese news site TVBS in March 2004 and a forum post submitted to the South Korean humor forum Bittalk on in October that year (shown below).



Spread

Between 2004 and 2008, a slew of additional photographs and videos featuring eye-browed dogs continued to emerge as part of a larger photo fad staging dogs in humanlike situations, which became quite popular on Korean internet humor sites and microblogging communities. In 2009, two pet dogs born with eyebrow-like dark spots were highlighted on Japanese TV show programs, one named “Panda” from Fukuoka and the other named “Ran” from Osaka, leading to numerous mentions by Japanese culture blogs on the English and French-speaking web.

This meme seems boring to me. Dogs naturally have eyebrows. Some dogs have the markings above the eyes, like the Doberman, while others don’t. Still, the muscle is there and dogs use them to show facial expressions much like humans do.

In fact, much like how humans have domesticated dogs, you might say dogs have domesticated us to their own ways. Humans are emphatically capable to detect the emotions of our canines via facial expressions.

That aside, the meme seems redundant since it’s just human eyebrows on top of dog eyebrows. It’s a strange kind of personification in which this creature actually does have this characteristic that’s similar to us and yet people still place it on them as if it didn’t exist. What we get is a weird picture of a dog with two sets of eyebrows.

The real fun is catching them making very human expressions (with their real eyebrows) and taking a photo.
