A Dog’s Sixth Sense

There’s this beautiful, little video floating around the internet of a young child with Down Syndrome, which according to his mom causes him to feel a bit uncomfortable with physical contact. He is seen sitting outside with their dog, Himalaya, a sweet Golden Retriever. Himalaya is lovingly persistent and gently coaxes the little toddler into coming out of his shell. At minute 1:35 Himalaya looks Hernan in the eyes and rests her paw on his shoulder as if she is saying to him, “It’s okay. I understand.” After a couple more nudges, she is finally able to sit next to him in comfort. It’s a moment that bridges the gap between mankind and the animal kingdom, solidifying the belief that animals really do have a Sixth Sense when it comes to helping their humans.

Take a peek at this extraordinary moment:
