On Valentine’s Day or any day Louboutina, the hugging Golden Retriever, and owner Cesar Fernandez-Chavez are ready to make people’s days a little brighter.
The two typically go on three walks a day sometimes lasting up to two hours each as they are interrupted by Louboutina’s hugging hobby.
Since 2013, Fernandez-Chavez estimated, Louboutina has given out some 700 hugs on her walks. Fans from as far away as China have asked to meet her.
So what does 5-year-old Lououtina get out of it? Fernandez-Chavez believes she genuinely enjoys the human contact.
Happy Valentine's Day to all bipeds and quadrupeds
