There are some dogs or cats that really live at the vet’s office, or simply hang around there during working hours, and have a reasonably special job of their own: they comfort any visiting animals which may be scared.
Actually, one vet “comfort dog assistant” was capturing another dog during a picture providing consolation to a dog patient – and therefore the photo has gone viral.
The caption on the image reads, “This veterinarian features a comfort dog assistant that helps sick dog patients know that everything is going to be alright.”
In the picture, you'll see a cute dog attached to IVs on his little vet bed, while the dog next to him is giving him a mild nudge together with his nose so as to comfort him.
It is such a sweet and tender moment, it’s easy to ascertain why the image has been receiving a lot of attention. there's something with great care pure about one dog comforting another during its time of need. It definitely evokes all the emotions and makes us want to cry.
Redditors are posting all types of comments and opinions about the image. There are many who couldn’t help but gush over the adorableness of the entire heartbreaking situation.
“This is that the saddest and cutest photo I’ve seen in my life,” wrote one Redditor called JungleLiquor.
“Those sad eyebrows and therefore the gentle nose touch,” another called r/putfoodonyourfamily commented.
r/Adventurous_Opinion imagined that the one dog providing comfort must be saying, “‘It’s getting to be okay fren.’”
Then r/conundrumbombs summed it up with the words, “Snoot boop.”
There were many other Redditors who were speculating about the lives of the 2 dogs.
One Redditor, r/tecknoize, shared their devastating theory, saying, “What if that picture is really of a veteran comfort dog, after helping countless others undergo bad days, is now the patient, watching the eyes of a replacement comfort dog recruit. As he remembers how he felt on his first day, he can’t help but do his job one last time, comforting the recruit that everything goes to be alright.”
r/Cactihoarder was suspicious about the extent of cuteness, saying, “Is this true? I desire it could cause more harm than good supported how the opposite dog is.”
r/Elan-Morin-Tedronai replied with, “I mean you're getting to choose a dog supported affableness for a comfort dog, and if the sick dog wasn’t down with a lover you'll just immediately remove him.”
r/ricebasket appeared to accept as true with cactihoarder, and wrote, “Yeah if my dog is unable to smell the butt because she’s mobility limited or hooked to an IV she’s gonna be more stressed by another dog than comforted.”
Then r/malefiz123 chimed in with, “My old vet had her two dogs always in her examination room. She would send them out if the ‘patient’ was an anxious dog or another animal sort of a cat. for many dog patients, they stayed there and that I thought it helped “distract” the dog if that creates sense.”
Regardless of the specifics behind this picture, I feel we will all agree that it's a really sweet moment between two dogs and that we could all use some more of it during this world.
