Your morning adorable: Patient dog babysits chick
YouTube user tamwaimanr's video has left us at a loss for words; viewing it kind of makes us want to curl up in a ball and rock back and forth slowly, watching it on an endless loop and wishing that some humans we know could take a cue from this gentle dog.
Of course, we're unabashed suckers for animals that look out for other, smaller animals -- be it a dog who sweetly nuzzles a duckling or a cat who flies in the face of tradition by bathing, rather than snacking on, a friendly rat.
If you've experienced a similar incident of love among the species, we'd love to see it! Share your photo in the Four-Legged Friends album at Your Scene, The Times' photo-sharing site. Be sure to include a caption that tells us about the animals you've photographed!
