Give a Dog a Hug Day

October 5th, 2009


Boy: “I’m going to give you a great big hug!”



Dog: “Oof!”



They were made for each other.  Don’t forget to hug your dog! Okay, cats are included too!

    That 2nd pic is brilliant!

    LOVE IT!

    As a huge supporter of our local animal protection and Humane Societies — I think these could be used as posters for the better treatment of animals all around!

    Thanks for posting, Beau!

    In a few years time he will truely dislike those photos, and will until he has some of his own.

    Now that he has been gone for over a decade, I wish I had dished out more hugs to my dog. Great pictures!

    Warren- Good point… some cats are just not meant to be hugged!
    Kim- Well, hmmm… it should apply to camels! ‘Course I was spit upon once by camel in Mombasa… is yours a nice camel!?
    Mark- Thanks! That’s a cute idea…
    Vince- Your’re probably right, and a host of other things I’ve written :)
    Annie- He’s a good dog, and completely good humored…
    Ed- We’ll make sure to give some extras for you, but I know what you mean. I remember a couple of dogs I’d like to see again…

    I’m sure the affection between those two is mutual, with each trying to outdo the other. In other words, the perfect relationship.
