— -- Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?

Taylor Duguay, of Sudbury Ontario, Canada, taught her 2-year-old border collie to dole out hugs to his furry best friend. The result are incredibly sweet Vines.

Lottie's latest hug, which Duguay posted to Vine last week, has been looped a whopping 35 million times. It features Lottie hugging her bestie Grizzly, a 2-year-old German shepherd.

"Lottie has a knack for doing tricks and she loves nothing more than performing for crowds," Duguay, 20, told ABC News via Facebook Sunday. "In my eyes, Lottie is a super dog."

Duguay said that although Lottie is a pretty lovable dog, who even sleds, dock dives and plays with frisbees, "she's very much a normal dog."

"Lottie isn't perfect," she admitted. "I'll be the first to admit she's like every other dog. She barks when someone comes to the door, she's chewed a roll of paper towels and she likes spending her days taking naps."
