Saturday Smiley: Baby Hugging Technique for Dogs

Mom gots this in the email yesterday and I thought it was Most Educational. So I thought I would share it with you in case you ever have the need to hug a baby.

Instructions for properly hugging a baby (from a dog’s point of view):

1. First, uh, find a baby.

2. Second, be sure that the object you found was indeed a baby, by employing classic sniffing techniques.

3. Next, you will need to flatten the baby before actually beginning the hugging process.

4. The ‘paw slide’ = Simply slide paws around baby and prepare for possible close-up.

5. Finally, if a camera is present, you will need to execute the difficult and patented ‘hug, smile, and lean’ so as to achieve the best photo quality.

  3. Oh my Cod, look at that picture. That is the cutest picture I have ever seen. What a gentle and wonderful dog. Thanks for showing us this. Hope you have a fun day.

  4. How sweet! In a world where I hear I can’t keep my dog b/c I’m having a baby it is nice to see that a dog and baby CAN exist together. 🙂

  5. That is very educational. We will be needing a baby in order to practice. We’ll have to have a look around the neighborhood. There must be one around somewhere.

    Bawhahahaha! Maybe we should send this to Zona and family? I am an expert at hugging babies – of course, once they become toddlers it is more like they are hugging me (cause then they are bigger than me).

    Your pal, Pip

    Mayzie when we were young and had babies we all needed a dog so smart!!!!! Those pictures were wonderful!!! Thank you for sharing them with us!!!
    Mayzie you had said something about Bambi being brindle?? When she was young she was very brindle but as she aged she got less and less brindle!! She is really very gray now. Bambi is 13.6 years old and for a fairly big dog that is really old!!!! The vet thinks she will make 14 but that is only 6 months away and I don’t want to lose her!!!

  16. Stumpy wouldn’t be so gentle with the baby. someone should have showed her this years ago!

  17. The OP Pack

    That was just adorable. That dog’s humans must have complete trust in their dog to allow that to happen. He is SO big and the baby is SO tiny, but it looks like the little one is enjoying the hugs.
