If you’re in New York and feel you need a hug, you could meet up with Louboutina, the city’s own hugging celebrity dog — who happens to have more than 58k followers on her Instagram account.
Louboutina who is very aptly named after a French shoe designer, loves going out for her daily walk to give the people she meets, hugs. “It’s not just a regular walk in the park”, her owner, 45 year old Fernandez- Chavez told “The Dodo“. “It’s a walk with hugging. A lot of people say she made their day…like, if they had a bad day at work, perhaps this was just what they needed.”
“Loubie, (for short) started holding hands with me, with both paws crossed over each other. A couple of years back, it was around St.Valentine’s day in 2014. My relationship had ended, and I was heart-broken”, said Fernandez-Chavez. “I remember joking with my friends saying; at least I have someone to hold hands with on St. Valentine’s Day!”
Now, Fernandez-Chavez knows, he is not the only one that needs to be loved, other people need it too. So if you find yourself in Chelsea, you can drop him a line by e-mail, and fix a date for a hug with Loubie, the dog with a golden heart.
