A study analyzing 250 photos of dogs being hugged shows that dogs might not enjoy hugs from their owners. Eighty percent of the animals present （A）subtle cues of anxiety in the photos, such as folding their ears down, licking their lips and avoiding eye-contact. Psychologist Stanley Coren conducted the research. He claims that running away is a dog's first line of defense when facing stress or threat, and hugging（B）deprives dogs of that ability.
The study successfully drew attention, but did it really prove that dogs think hugs are hard to （C）put up with? Some experts find it hard to totally agree with. Animal behavior consultant Corey Cohen suggests that whether or not dogs like hugging depends on the intimacy they have with the hugger. Stanley Coren also admitted that the 250 photos used in the study were not peer-reviewed. This implies that the conclusion, that dogs dislike being hugged, may be inaccurate.
这项研究成功吸引了大众注意，但它真的证实了狗狗不喜欢被抱吗？有些专家不这幺认为。动物行为顾问Corey Cohen就说，狗狗喜不喜欢被抱，端看牠和拥抱者的亲密度。Stanley Coren也坦承，研究中250张照片并没有经过同侪审查*，显示狗狗不喜欢被抱的结论不尽然正确。
What most dogs lovers care the most might be “so should I hug my dog or not?” co-director of Duke's Canine Cognition Center Evan MacLean suggests that a sudden cuddle or lifting a dog from the ground might not be a good idea, since it's against dog's nature.
"I would (1) advise against hugging dogs, at least in the conventional human form of hugging," says MacLean “However, there are lots of ways to have close body contact with dogs that don't require (2) wrapping your arms around them in a confining manner.”
1. advise against 建议不要
我们比较熟悉的用法是「建议人怎幺做」像：She advised us when to come. （她建议我们何时来）
「Advise against」好用但很容易被忽略。可以advise against连用，也可以中间有受词：
- I'd strongly advise against making a sudden decision. 我不建议这样仓促决定。His doctor advised him against smoking. 医师建议他别抽烟。
2. wrap your arms around...用双手环抱
I wrapped my arms around my little boy and read him to sleep. （我环抱着小儿子，唸着故事直到他睡着）
