“I’ll be back in a bit. I think there’s something in my eye or something. sniff. This is the first reddit pet video that has caused me to cry!”
Those comments represent the majority sentiment of those who have watched this emotional and heartwarming video, filmed in Chennai (eastern India). The video was posted on November 27 and has (not at all surprisingly) since gone viral. In it, a Labrador retriever named Jack Daniel and his owner are locked in a long and emotional embrace after a surgery to remove a lump discovered beneath the pup’s right ear.
The emotion is almost palpable as the camera pans in slow circles around the man, who’s sprawled out on the floor of the vet’s office with a Christmas tree in the backdrop. His faithful companion stands on his haunches, as close to his human as he can possibly get, with his paws clasped over the man’s shoulders.
“They got it, right? We’re never going to have to come back here again?”
“Yeah, buddy, it’s all over now … I’m so sorry you had to go through that, but I promised to always take care of you.”
Watch this incredibly touching reunion in the video below, and share if you agree this is one of the most emotionally powerful videos ever.
