Nothing can put a bright smile on your face quicker than the heartwarming antics of man’s four-legged best friend.

When it involves human connection especially, dogs seem to have a soft spot for us like we do for them. A recent video is being circulated on the internet that perfectly captures the beginning of what looks like an everlasting friendship between a little boy and a Labrador.
