National Hugging Day is January 21st. We are a family of huggers, especially Bailie, Olivia, and Mom. Olivia loves to hug people and other dogs whenever she has a chance.
Bailie is Mom’s first hugging dog. She has the nickname huggle hound because of her hug/snuggle combination. She took this selfie with Mom for the special day today. Bailie wraps her paws around Mom’s neck and if she isn’t ready to stop the hug when Mom wants to stop, she squeezes tighter.
I’m not much of a hugger, most likely because I am short. Being hugged is great, but I don’t initiate hugs on my own. Mom loves to hug and cuddle me. I’m really good at standing on my back feet so she can give me a real good squeeze.
Olivia is the most huggly, snuggly creature roaming the planet! We can’t even count how many hugs she gives to Mom in a day. Being tall it makes it much easier for her to hug, but she also loves doing her leap (video below). Once Mom catches her, she hugs Mom and gives her kisses all over her face and ears. The two of them are kind of weird but their ritual makes them both happy.
Happy National Hugging Day! Make sure and give your pets and humans you love some extra squeezes today! Good hugs are something to be thankful for.
