Big Dogs Give Good Hugs (Photos)

Doesn't this face just make you wanna give him a hug?

I’ll admit it. I’m a big dog snob. I adore big dogs. They are human-like in so many ways. So it’s no surprise that many big dogs make ideal pets for families with young children.

I’ve grown up having big dogs and have a black lab now, not the biggest by any stretch, but she sure make sup for that in the hugs department. She hugs like a person, with two paws and her head on your shoulder. It is one of the cutest things she does.

On my dream doggie list, lives a St. Bernard and a Great Dane. You can imagine the hugs there!

If you adore big dogs or doggie hugs, or just simply like looking at hideously cute photos, click through these pics of big dogs hugging their owners (and sometimes vice versa):
