There are distractions this week and not a lot of time to write so here is a beautiful, little story for today that will warm your heart:
Cats are mysterious, mercurial and manipulative beings, ever unpredictable and fascinating. Certainly they are loyal to the humans they happen to like and are sometimes known to behave altruistically toward people, especially children.
That last attribute, however, is more commonly in the repertoire of dogs and this video is a beautiful example. A Labrador with a Down syndrome toddler who isn't sure he wants the dog's attention at all. But the dog gently and patiently perseveres.
Apparently, no one knows who uploaded this video so there are no facts to tell you but it appears that this may the first meeting between the child and a dog. Thank you to Darlene Costner for sending this.
