The Gentle, Loving “Nana”

I just had to share this incredible video.

This little Peter Pan has his very own patient, attentive, and devoted "Nana"...

You can see an extended version of this interaction (without the music bed) between the little boy and the Golden Retriever here.

Recently there was the story of a lost 10 year old Down syndrome boy that was found by a mother dog looking for her pups. The puppies had huddled with the boy through the night, keeping each other warm. Around the same time a 4 year old Down Syndrome boy in New South Wales became lost in the bushlands with three of the family dogs. They too loyally stayed with him through the night, barking out when they heard the humans searching for the boy. Turnabout is fair play when a 7 year old girl with Down Syndrome saves a dog from drowning.
