Sept. 12 is National Hug Your Hound Day, and you better believe we’re celebrating it here at Granite 550. Send us a picture of you and your dog hugging for a chance to win a gift card. Then, stop by our office or get in touch with us for details. In the meantime, enjoy this list of five huggable hounds!

These long and spunky little lap dogs, known for their big personalities and cartoonish shape, are infinitely huggable.
