While the darling dog loves to hug, she is comically picky about her recipients. “Sometimes people run up and ask for a hug, but I tell them, ‘I don’t think it’s going to happen,’ because she has to bond with that person first,” he said. “But when she sits next to someone, then I say, ‘You’re probably going to get a hug.’”
As if she couldn’t get any more adorable, Loubie’s habit of hugging is not her only cute quirk. Prior to cuddling, she had a thing for holding hands. “She started sitting up and grabbing my hands with both of her paws, and then crossing the other paw over her paw,” Fernandez-Chavez said. “From then on, every walk, she wanted to hold hands.”
Though she has since moved on from the hand-holding, Loubie’s love of canoodling suggests that she won’t give up hugs anytime soon. Lucky us!
