These 25 Dogs Giving Hugs Are Here To Brighten Your Day

Pet owners love to hug their dogs. We all know that. But here is something you may not know. Dogs love to hug their owners, too. Sounds crazy, I know, but I have proof.

Sometimes when I pick up my dog, she'll wrap her arms around me, and if that doesn't sound like a hug, then I don't know what does. 

Here's my other piece of evidence. This entire list. That's probably the more compelling argument.
