Aawww …how adorable. I feel sorry for people who think owning a dog is nothing more than getting dog hair off your furniture and taking them on walks when you don’t feel like it, because this video (and millions of others mind you) show that they are not only capable of acknowledging your love but giving love in return as well. If you ever wanted to adopt a dog but had second thoughts about it, watch this. Dogs are so much more than pets and this Alaskan Malamute is the ultimate proof.
Getting left behind when their humans go to work is hard for any pet but Lakota, as this gorgeous girl is named, sure found a way to make hers feel welcome every time he comes back from work. She learned how to show affection in a way her owner would understand, by giving him a long, warm, unmistakably humanlike hug.
And this is not some dog trick she was taught just for YouTube… according to Jack Pitzer, who has the privilege of being Lakota’s owner, she learned that all by herself. You can’t watch this without a HUGE smile on your face.
