Nothing feels better than putting a smile on someone else’s face. Connie, a senior Lab from Brighton, England, enjoys waiting for her neighbors to pass by each day from her front porch.

Everyone beams when they see Connie with her tail wagging, but their smiles become even wider when they see the note above her.


One day while returning home with her husband, one of Connie’s neighbors, Becky Albon, noticed the adorable dog lying on her outside bed. When Connie first saw the couple, she immediately brightened.

When Albon got close enough to the sign to read it, she realized why.



“Free Cuddles: I’m old & arthritic, but still have lots of love to share,” read one of the signs above Connie’s bed; “I’m very old & lame, but love affection,” said the other; and both signs ended with a beautiful sign-off, “Love, Connie.”

Albon and her husband did not need any more persuasion to agree to spend five minutes sitting with Connie before continuing their walk.


Albon said, “She was super friendly and happy to see us. She even let us give her belly rubs.”

The moment the Albons stopped to pat Connie, her tail began to thud back and forth in utter ecstasy. Only the sight of additional passing neighbors increased her excitement.



“She was wagging her tail at everyone who went past,” Albon said. “And she was very gentle.”

Connie enjoyed every second of their time together, as evidenced by the Albons. Albon also stated that seeing Connie brightened her day, as would likely be the same for many other neighbors.



Connie, a senior dog, can be found inside her family’s house soaking up all the affection from the folks who know her best when she is not sitting on her front porch giving free cuddles to her neighbors.

And her neighbors, who adore her more and more every day, eagerly await sunny days so they may spend time with and cuddle their beloved neighborhood dog once more.
