Dogs are frequently used in therapy as they increase child’s confidence, reduce anxiety and fear and serve as a backup if a parent suddenly loses focus. But the most important, of course, they never turn their back on you.
These two definitely speak one language and share many emotions. The boy charges from the dog, and the furry fellow is over the moon with his human. Against everything.
