Video of boy and his dog captures pure goodness in the midst of a pandemic

BOY AND DOG

Cerith Gardiner - published on 08/03/20

Get your week off to the right start with this short, but oh so sweet, video.

Before you get into the busyness of your day, take a minute to watch this video of a young Ecuadorian boy going off on a bike ride with his dog.

There are so many things to love about the video … The dog behaving beautifully as the little boy carefully puts a mask on him; the little boy patiently placing the mask on the dog first before his own; the compassion of a child to protect those under his care; and just the plan delight of seeing a child out and about with his trusty four-legged friend.

Enjoy!
