Heard this on the Jeremy Vine show on Radio 2 in the office today .... He had a number of guests on for and against, was an interesting listen ...... I came to the conclusion that half these people haven't a clue what they are talking about!! Everyone loves a cuddle ... Human or canine .... I know some not "Cuddly" people same as some dogs but you can't generalise :smiley-rolleyes010.gif:

What a load of rubbish. If I didn't cuddle my girls they would wonder what they had done!! A cuddle is wonderful for me and my girls

Its simple. A cuddle or hug is a SHARED show of love. Both parties (human and/or animal) must be open to giving and receiving the hug. If you can't tell if a dog wants a hug wait for them to come to you and enjoy the closeness they give but do not restrain them in any way.

I don't have a choice but to cuddle Tabitha. She sleeps with her arms round me!
She can't have got the memo.

Rhianna hates cuddles. With the notable exception of if I ever try and date anyone. Then she's on my lap arms around me full leaning cuddle monster. They leave, back to no cuddles just sitting next to me. So yeah - cheers for that Rhianna :smiley-rolleyes010.gif: :D
