None of these cuties pictured are my own pets, but in my animal care business, I come across dogs and cats in a variety of breeds (and breed mixes.) They may not be my pets, but I love them as if they were. Here are just a few of my animal friends.
People often ask me what my favorite breed is (of dogs especially.) With all of these lovable cuties, it is hard to choose. Of these photos, which is your favorite?
Sensitivity can be a really good thing. Reading and the arts help nurture our ability to empathize with others. Watch these babies and dogs be moved by music and movies.
Baby emotionally moved by Bocelli song to Elmo
What a beautiful baby. He lights up with joy as Elmo sings and seems moved almost to tears by Bocelli’s singing.
French bulldogs’ adorable reaction to saddest scene in “Inside Out.”
I’ve been following these Frenchies, Griffin and Haru, for a while. Is it just coincidence that they decide to cuddle at that moment? Some dogs don’t seem to notice TV. I’ve observed some of the dogs I care for reacting to the TV, especially when there are dogs or other animals on the screen. Just wait until the last video. It seems it is possible for dogs to follow some of the action and to empathize.
Baby reacts to “Moonlight Sonata.”
This little boy had an emotional reaction to hearing his older sister play “Moonlight Sonata” at her recital. I think there is an artist in this boy. One of the commenters on YouTube suggested he should take piano lessons himself when he is old enough. I think that perhaps he is right.
Adorable dog reacts in cutest way to “Lion King’s” saddest scene.
Before seeing this, I really didn’t know that it was possible for a dog to understand and follow what is going on in an abstract scene on TV. This dog really seems to have some understanding of what he is watching and is sympathizing so much with Simba. No wonder dogs are so sensitive to our emotions and seek to comfort us when we are sick or sad.
We all need sensitive souls and the ability to empathize. I hope this touches you and makes you smile.
