Daily Cute: “A Boy and His Dog” Is the Best Thing You’ll Watch All Day

Daily Cute: “A Boy and His Dog” Is the Best Thing You’ll Watch All Day

Some things are just between a boy and his dog. Such is the case for Owen and his Anatolian Shepard named Haatchi, stars of the short film “A Boy and His Dog.”

Upon meeting, the two immediately developed a strong bond that has helped them cope with their disabilities together: Owen has Schwartz-Jampel syndrome, which causes his muscles to be tensed and cramped, and Haatchi lost one of his legs in a train accident in 2012. When Owen’s parents decided to adopt Haatchi, they had no idea how much he would change their lives. Now, Owen and Haatchi are more confident and happy in their everyday lives, and prove that a little bit a love can go a long way.

A moving story from the start. I hope the medical world can find a medicine to relax Owen's muscles so he isn't in pain.

Some particular stories like this evoke strong emotions but all those that find an animal waiting for us when we back to home know what our non-human family members are important. Their's always happy to see you, always willing to love you in their own way.
In the difficult moments that I passed, my little babies, with their feathers or fur, had given me the strength to go on.
We are the "dominant species" due to the reason, but we should learn from the animals to "dominate with the heart."
