This really adorable video shows that dogs really can feel sad about being separated by their loved ones, even to the point of tears! A momma dog is reunited with her puppies after they were rescued and she is relieved in only the way a mother can be. Her puppies swarm around her and she is crying tears of joy.
There were, however, less enthusiastic people in the comments section who claimed that dogs don’t cry. One commenter wrote, “Dogs can’t cry. It’s a condition called epiphora. Stupid people always trying to humanize every creature on the planet.” Another person wrote, “If your dog has fluid coming out of its eyes, you might assume that the animal is crying but actually dogs cannot cry in the way that humans do.”
OK, maybe it’s not technically possible, but we’re willing to believe it because we don’t have coal in the place where our hearts should be. At least watch the video and pretend heartwarming things are happening.
