Dogs seem to have some unusual superpowers that heal us from stress and anxiety with just a hug. Probably that’s the reason why therapy dogs exist. This video shared on social media is testimony to that.
A Twitter account, @welcomet0nature, recently posted a video that has everyone going ‘aww’. The 22-second clip opens up with a toddler strolling in the home’s corridor. That’s when the child is startled by the loud and harsh sound made by a vacuum cleaner. It visibly frightens him. It seems like the kiddo doesn’t like it when someone vacuums the house.
Scared of the noise, the toddler immediately runs to a doggo comfortably seated at the other end of the corridor and gives him a tight hug. The baby probably felt safe by standing next to the dog.
Here’s the adorable video:

Tweeple found the cute gesture of the kiddo ‘touching.’
Too funny, and touching. My cat, who hates the hoover, heard your video and ran to snuggle into me!

Some also concluded that even the doggo was scared and found solace when the child gave him a hug.
Plot twist: the dog is scared of the vacuum too 😂

Actually, both are scared of the vacuum. Doggo finds some support finally.

Doggie says “but who’s going to protect me from the vacuum”?

Husky: what makes you think I’m not scared of that monster.

Haha the dog doesn't seem to be in much of a protector mode.

Talking from experience, a good cuddle and some playtime with your pet doggo is the ultimate stress-buster. Try it!
