Scientists Discover Happiest Puppy
Twice in the past editors at The Fluffington Post have thought they had discovered the happiest dog on earth: once a year ago and then again four months ago. Not so, say scientists at Sapienza University of Rome, who point to Ellie, whose happiness levels are off the charts.
"Ellie may literally be the happiest dog alive right now," said researcher Salvatore Magliocco. "Ellie’s showing extremely elevated levels of serotonin and an increased number of endorphins. She’s just really happy, all the time."
Off the charts happy, according to Magliocco, who says that Ellie’s general mood is unprecedented. When compared to other dogs on record, Ellie is nearly twice as happy by most metrics.
"She never seems sad," he said. "We’d expect this amount of happiness to come with some manic tendencies, but she’s all peaks, no valleys. This is just one happy dog!"
