Sometimes we just need a nice, big hug to get us through the day. And our dogs know exactly how we feel. That’s one of the reasons we love them so much, because they just LOVE to hug.
These ones especially. Check out 21 adorable photos (and gifs, obviously) of hugging dogs that will instantly make you feel all warm and fuzzy:
1. Just enjoying the view…
2. When in doubt, hug it out.
3. That feeling of having their head on your shoulder…
4. “As long as we’re together!”
5. Oh wow, French Bulldog puppies hugging.
6. Nothing beats a big dog jumping into your arms.
7. “Nope – this hug ain’t over yet, buddy.”
8. “Let’s take a break from our walk and hug on the bench.”
9. Hugs on the sofa are the best. Especially with such a fluffy pup!
10. Nothing can keep these two apart.

21. Finally, if you’re desperate for a hug – hold your arms out and hope for the best!
NB. Hugging increases feelings of safety, trust, love, self-worth, belonging, happiness and appreciation. Hugs increase the levels of oxytocin in the body and reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol. So hugs = happiness 🙂
