Puppy to Give Free Hugs in 2013
According to his publicist, Alfie, a Jack Russell Terrier from Utica, NY, has decided to offer free hugs to all takers in 2013.
"Next year, Alfie will begin giving out up to 25 hugs each day on a first come, first served basis," said Jane McDuggan, of the William Morris Agency, which represents the puppy. "Hugs will be given free of charge and may not last more than a half minute each."
When asked why Alfie plans to give out hugs in the coming year, McDuggan explained that he just wanted to make the world a happier place.
