This adorable video of a lab befriending a boy with Down Syndrome is spreading like wildfire around the Internet.  Until today, I haven't slowed down enough to really watch it!  Well, now that I have I'm so in love with it!

 

Animals can provide so much comfort and companionship - especially to those with disabilities or special needs!

Hernan, the boy in the video has a condition and it makes him shy about personal contact.  Himalaya, the lab, nudges in ever-so-slowly and gently and by the end, they are BFFs!  So sweet!
