I think each dog may be different in that respect. I do know that our son M was bitten on the forearm by a supposedly docile lab. He was petting him but they were standing in a small foyer with a number of other people. So it was a crowded small space. Also my sister was bitten on the face as a young child by a young dog she was hugging. Makes you think.

Seamus was the biggest hugger of them all (a rescue lurcher who features in our earlier blog posts). Pearl is catching up fast with her hugs and has learned from the master :o) LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Ahh – how lovely – you can’t beat a doggy hug and cuddles! xx LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
