Here is Kalisi, the red/blue heeler mother keeping watch over her pups while my daughter, Willa snuggles them all. These are the puppies of my niece, Kelsea Kenzy Sutton and her husband, Billie Sutton (obviously Game of Thrones fans).  Kalisi’s puppies were a real added bonus of our trip to South Dakota and I hope these images of love tell the story.

OXYTOCIN is widely dubbed the love hormone, numerous other names have been given to oxytocin recently – hug hormone, cuddle chemical, moral molecule, bliss hormone even since researchers have begun to uncover its effects on behavior, including its role in love, in addition to its female biological functions in reproduction.
