Reader photo of the day: Tayah the Rhodesian ridgeback gets a hug from a young friend


Submitter jim shares this sweet shot of dog Tayah and her human friend, 18-month-old Josh, enjoying some quality time in the park.  Tayah, a 2-year-old Rhodesian ridgeback, looks like she could get used to this kind of attention!  "This wasn't posed," jim explains -- just one of those great moments when magic happens and someone happens to have a camera at the ready.

Think your animal photo should be our reader photo of the day?  Show us by heading to the Pets & Animals category of Your Scene, The Times' photo-sharing site, and selecting the album that's the best fit for your photo (for instance, we found jim's photo in one of our favorite albums, Best Babysitters).  Once you've chosen your album, just click the "submit" link at the top of the page, pick your photo (.jpg format) and include a caption that tells us a little about the animal or animals in the photo -- it's as simple as that!

It is a lovely photo, and Tayah is clearly a wonderful dog - and Josh is too cute for words. I just wrote to say - it doesn't look like Tayah *could get* used to this, it looks like she *is* used to it.

Being hugged by a human is NOT something a dog likes without having learned to tolerate it first. Yes, they can and do learn to enjoy the closeness and the affection the human intends. Generally, though, without prior socialization, a dog will find it scary and threatening - so, please, don't let your kids just go up and hug a dog they don't know!
