Hugging your Dobe?

I know this may sound like a silly question, but how often do y'all hug your Dobes, if at all, and do they like it?

Toro lets out the equivalent of a little doggie "sigh" when I wrap my arms around him and give him a gentle squeeze.

I read somewhere that dogs don't really "relate" to hugs by nature, but what if they're used to it from puppyhood?

Mine love to get hugs. Harmony rests her head behind yours when you hug her squeezing you. I think it is her hugging back. lol. Asher backs up between your legs and rests his body on your chest. That is his hint for hug me and pet me to death. He only gives me the eye when other people are around. Something about taking that macho male picture away infront of people. But he loves it. They have been cuddled on since puppyhood. Too much sometimes I fear.
