Golden Hug?

So Sammy pup does this thing where he pushes his face right into mine and just stays there wagging his tail. I've heard this is called the "Golden Hug" and that GRs do this to show affection. Anyone else get this funny treatment?

We get them all the time! Brew likes to push his head right into our tummies! Or, he likes to jump up and put his arms around us! I love our golden hugs!

Yeah those are wonderful moments. Tucker does something like that too, but usually buries his face in some part of my body... and he loves to stand up (when invited) and give us "hugs."

I do get that from Phoenix too. But it isn't in a specific spot as long as he can shove his face wherever he has access to us. I think its cute!
