Researchers at Purdue University are looking into why Alice the Shih-Tzu appears cuter than normal just after a nap.

“It’s a physiological property we’ve temporarily dubbed ‘Extra Cute’ while we figure out the appropriate Latin term,” says Dr. Khalid Tepper. “Right now we think it has something to do with blinky eyes and wobbly paws, but we have a few more experiments to conduct before anything’s conclusive.”
