I could pet these guys for hours, and honestly sometimes I almost do.

 

Settling in for a good pet/cuddle session with my hounds not only lowers their anxiety, but my own as well.

But you know what? Instead of looking that up and linking it here, I think I’m just going to go pet my dogs and experience the results.

 

May you too have someone warm and cute to cuddle with tonight.
