Giving and receiving attention is a very important commodity for pups. It is something actually inherited from their wolf ancestors, where this sort of social interaction is related to the animal’s position in the pack’s social hierarchy.
And considering this shows in the form of pups showering their parents with affection whenever they see them, this works out pretty well for us!
This can be seen in the interaction between this German Shepherd and his Dad! This pup clearly considers his Dad as part of the pack, and is happy to receive some affection and attention from his Dad. It really lovely to watch this sweet bonding moment between the two of them!
It says a lot that not much beats cozying up with your pup someplace safe and warm. They are just so full of unconditional love for you that you will always feel better after spending some time with them!
