This video of a golden lab attempting to befriend a little boy with Down syndrome is adorable.  This will definitely put a smile on your face.  A must see video!  This dog is so gentle and loving to this sweet little boy.

SOURCE – Here’s a video that proves once again why a dog is a man’s best friend.

A Labrador befriended a 3-year-old boy with Down syndrome and the child’s mother caught their touching interaction on camera.

Himalaya, a gentle giant compared to little Hernan, approached the boy outside his home in La Plata in Buenos Aires. The pup belongs to Hernan’s uncle, his mom Ana explained on YouTube.

Ana said that Hernan, who will be 5 in December, does not like to be touched, and he often shies away from contact. However, Himalaya was patient and tried again and again to connect with the boy.

At the end of the video, the pair settles down side by side.

The video was taken in May 2012 when Hernan was 3 years old.

The original video, which was posted in June 2012, has nearly 360,000 views. Jim Stenson’s version, which was uploaded in Sept. 2012, has more than 10.7 million views

With almost Biblical precision, the earth opened up and swallowed a clump of tall trees in Louisiana on Wednesday evening.

In just a few minutes, more than a dozen doomed trees vanished underneath the swirling dark currents of the Assumption Parish sinkhole.

In a Youtube video of the incident, the water looks placid at first. The trees lean in slowly, inch by inch. Then, the waters begin to churn and the trees sink underneath, lost forever to the sunlight.
