A woman can’t believe her eyes!
Do you need a hug? If no one is available, and you are in New York City, there is a dog who can help you feel better. For a few hours each day, Louboutina (“Loubie”), a Golden Retriever, watches people on the street. She hugs those she thinks need her to do so.
Loubie’s owner, Cesar Fernandez-Chavez, says: “She gets a very good grip. She began her hugging with neighbors she knew. Then, pictures of her started showing up on the Internet. A lot of people say she’s made their day. Like, if they had a bad day at work, maybe that’s just what they needed. It’s nice to see people walk away with a smile.”
Here (see below) are some of Loubie’s new friends.
