Dogs always seem to know when we are most in need of their affection. Did you know that dogs actually have a wide variety of ways in which they show love? Whether we've had an awful day, suffered a great loss or simply need someone to talk to, dogs are there for us.
This little boy with Down syndrome was sitting by himself when a large ivory lab approached him.

While we may not know what was going on in either of their lives, it's clear that they both cared for each other in those moments. If you'd like to see another example of people and dogs caring for each other, check out Owen and Haatchi's story.
