Here is a fun infographic from Pet Insurance U with comment from dog regarding those hugs you like to give.
Just like humans, dogs are complicated creatures. We have our likes and dislikes just like you. But this hugging thing got way out of hand. We’ve been tight for thousands of years. Are you humans gonna throw that away over this? Sorry if we hurt your feelings, but think about all the good times we’ve shared together. We would die for you. Literally. Cat’s won’t do that.
– Love Always, Your Best Friend
