Shelter puppy with one light blue and one darker colored eye
Everyone knows about ‘puppy dog eyes’ – that devious tactic which, if executed properly, can get certain members of the animal (and human) kingdom almost anything they desire. Who could resist, much less ignore, that oh-so-innocent expression coupled with those sad, gentle eyes? ‘I want,’ they say. And more often that not, they get.
Now imagine those very same puppy dog eyes were different in color from each other. Imagine the magnetic – nay, irresistible – effect two such dissimilar looking peepers might exert. These images of dogs with exactly this condition – known as heterochromia – will make you see puppy dog eyes to the power of two, and we’re sure the effect will be to elicit more than a few besotted ‘awws’.
