A corgi named Graffiti, who lives in the United States, has an unusual way of showing affection and love. If he thinks you’re his new friend, he’ll come up to you and cuddle you while you’re lying on the couch.
“He has been suffo-snuggling ever since we can remember, but it has increased in duration and frequency over the last few years,” Graffiti’s mom told The Dodo. “He will stay there as long as you let him, and you usually have to lift him up and set him down next to you to get him off.”
But Graffiti “hugs” his loved ones in an unusual way. While they are lying down, he climbs up and with his whole body hugs the head and neck of the one to whom he has chosen to express his feelings. In fact, sometimes the owners even find it hard to breathe from such strong expressions of love!
“He does it every day to his poppa,” Graffiti’s mom said. “Usually in the mornings and before bedtime. But sometimes when he wants attention or is feeling extra cuddly, he’ll come up to you and make a weird ‘snook’ noise, which either means he has to go to the bathroom or he wants to cuddle.”
At first, the owners were amused by this behavior of their lovesick dog, but then they decided to gradually wean Graffiti off of it. But the dog doesn’t understand why – he has no problem with such displays of affection!
