Dog Has A Different Facial Expression For Every Moment Of His Life

This is Mutka.

Krista Aalto

He's been making funny faces ever since he was a puppy.

Now, at 1-and-a-half years old, Mutka's a full-grown Great Dane, and his faces have only gotten sillier.

It's because he has a level of energy that surpasses everybody around him.

"He loves everyone and everything, and he's probably the happiest dog I have ever owned," Mutka's owner Krista Aalto, who's from Finland, told The Dodo. "He is always in a good mood!"

Combine that high energy with a face that might as well be made of Muppet foam. That's Mutka.

"Even though he is a huge derp, he is able to be pretty handsome, too," Aalto added.

His good looks don't keep him from whipping out a ridiculous face like this.

Mutka's name means "bend" in Finnish. Aalto gave him his name because he was born with a small kink in his tail.

That's him and his little sis, Luna. They love each other.

Even though their playtime can get a little wild ...

... they always have each other's backs.

Sometimes Mutka uses his funny faces to distract Luna during playtime, like in this photo, below.

At times, that involves sticking out his ginormous tongue.

Other times he just flaps his mouth parts around.

Or his floppy ears.

"Of course goofiness is understandable because he's still a young dog," said Aalto, "but there's something special in this dog!"

Much of the time, Mutka's not even trying to make a goofy face. He's more focused on whatever exciting part of life is coming his way.

Even when he misses.

Keep on loving life, Mutka. With that kind of attitude, you've got many smiles ahead of you.
