It's such a cliche that it's become common to use the word "dogpile" to refer to the kinds of pileups you see at sporting events. It's even been used as a name for a web search engine. But few people are around dogs enough to actually see a real, live dogpile. It's way more adorable than you can imagine, especially when one of the goofiest breeds, the Basset hound, is involved.
Hounds are especially fond of cuddling up with their pack, whether that's other dogs, or their people.
