A Puppy Comforts His Pal

There’s plenty of evidence that dogs do dream and this little puppy is sure his older friend is having a bad one. Curled up next to his Golden Retriever pal, the pup wakes up to feel his friend quivering and whimpering. And even though he’s only a baby himself, his instincts tell him what to do.

Like people, dogs experience the deep sleep phase and that’s when dreams occur. You might see your pet pawing as if he’s moving or growling at nothing. Research suggests he’s dreaming. And while we may never know what this Golden is dreaming about, he’s lucky to have a little friend nearby to comfort him. This video could make us all wish we had such a thoughtful sleeping companion.
