The patented 5-step process: How to Hug a Baby

Step 1: Find a baby

Mission accomplished!

Step 2: Verify that what you have found is indeed a baby: Employ classic sniffing techniques.

Yup, it's a baby!

Step 3: Be sure to flatten the baby before actually beginning the final hugging process.

Good work!

Step 4: Slide paws around baby in preparation for close-up (the 'paw slide').

Well done!

Step 5: Wait for a camera to appear. (If all previous steps have been performed accurately this is inevitable.) Perform the difficult and patented 'hug, smile, and lean' for best photo quality.

Love to you all!


  1. Those are the CUTEST pictures I've ever seen. I especially love "Step 3." It looks like the dog is trying to protect the baby from a falling piano. :-)

  2. Step 3 is definitely most important. Babies MUST be flattened before hugged. By the by, the dog is absolutely gorgeous!!!

    p.s. The baby ain't too shabby either.

  3. Hello, I stumbled upon your blog and I love all of your inspiring and adorable posts! Like this one! Made my heart warm :)
