Until just about two decades ago, scientists were convinced that pups did not have emotions and could not feel pain (or dream) – despite obvious evidence to the contrary. While some pups are not exactly very empathetic (and let’s be honest – not all of us are empathetic either), there is no denying that they love us very much.
Bailey the Golden Retriever, as it turns out, happens to be a very empathetic pup! In this video, Dad decides to play a little prank on his pup. While the two of them are hanging out in the living room, he slowly climbs down from where he was sitting on the sofa onto the floor, and then pretends to start crying.
Bailey immediately springs into action, hopping off his seat to check in on his Dad. You can clearly see the concern and the worry in this pup as he tries to cheer Dad up! Clearly, he is full of love for his parent, and wants him to be alright too!
