Tumblr Fetched 5 Of The Most Huggable Dogs And We Can’t Resist

Being able to play and interact with dogs is one of life’s simple yet powerful pleasures. According to Psychology Today, the psychological, sociological, and physiological effects of pet ownership are so powerful that they “might actually have a causal role in decreasing cardiovascular risk.”

You don’t have to own a dog to appreciate and enjoy them, either. And if you don’t think that’s true, just try to get through the following pictures without smiling.

Can’t Outgrow A Doggo’s Love

They say dogs are a man’s best friend, and if there’s ever a picture to demonstrate that, it’s this one. As it was pointed out on Tumblr, although both the puppy and the kid have grown significantly in size, they did in parallel proportions, making the ratio between them stay (adorably) the same.

The Dog Who Did The Impossible

Many dogs spend a lot of their days trying to accomplish what seems impossible: catching their own tail. However, this very good boy defied all odds and actually did it — demonstrating that a pup shouldn’t limit his dreams to simply chasing squirrels. That’s quite a hug-worthy accomplishment.


Generous Dog Shares His Socks

Dogs will do anything to make us happy, even if it means sharing their favorite, dirty socks when they see you’re upset.

“I love my dog,” explained one Tumblr user. “If ever I cry, he collects up dirty socks and brings them to me. They’re his favorite thing in the world and they make him happy, so they’ll make me happy too. He’s a good boy.”


Sheepdog Takes Duties Very Seriously

This sheepdog demonstrated just how seriously he takes his duties when he herded an entire flock of sheep into his owner’s kitchen. Unfortunately, they ended up going to the bathroom everywhere and creating a mess. But the dog’s intentions were in the right place, and for that, he deserves a hug (as well as the owner).


Unbreakable Bond ‘Til The Very End

If you’re wondering what genuine love looks like — look no further. Meet Schoep, a 19-year-old dog suffering from arthritis. Every morning, his owner John takes him out to the lake because it helps alleviate his arthritis pain and helps him sleep. If that doesn’t warm your heart and make you want to hug this dog, what will?
