An interesting thing has developed with Misha lately. I haven't tried to teach her how to hug. Yet, it appears she has picked it up on her own. She will do it on command now.\n \nWhat's interesting is within the last two weeks, she has come up on my lap and given me a hug without me asking. She has decided that she wants one and puts her paw on my arm and her head on my shoulder. It's the sweetest thing.\n \nDo you think dogs need hugs like humans do?
