  1. where the hell is he going?

  2. Ah, okey, now i get it. it’s about a guy that commits a crime caring zero for people but then feels sorry ’bout his sick dog.
    Eeeeerrrr ok.

  3. Well Señorita, if you aren’t just the image of compassion I don’t know what is!

  4. Anybody else hear that whoosh as the point went soaring over Senorita’s head? lol
    Seriously though, this made me cry too. :(

  5. The look on the dog’s face at 4:03 just kills me.

  6. I cried as well : (

  7. It should have come with a warning… I could get past 2:41. I wasn’t just crying I was weeping!

  8. oh man. shit, tina! Wow.

  9. “Ah, okey, now i get it. it’s about a guy that commits a crime caring zero for people but then feels sorry ’bout his sick dog.

    He isn’t a con, his father his.

  10. Señorita Puri, I hope you lose something you love, since you’re heartless, maybe it won’t hurt that much.

  11. Yeah, I didn’t cry… I wept too. But makes me feel grateful for all the love I’ve gotten to experience in my own life with animals. So not a bad exchange for a few minutes of tears. Hard but beautiful. Kinda like life.

  12. wow – really, really well done, fantastic. Had tears in my eyes to. Such an excellent production.

  13. cry… I am balling… amazing… I have had to put a dog down… it is soo hard, but glad that we can do that for them when they are suffering

  14. i saw this and i froze…

    my dog is almost in the end of the line, it´s so sad…

  15. wow that hit me so hard! I love your blog I look forward to it every day before falling asleep and it had been about a month so i am catching up.

  16. @Señorita, I don’t think it is that simple…

    Beautiful video anyway.

  17. I’ve just heard that this video is a viral for RayBan….

    If so, I am well impressed with their marketing team…

  18. Senorita, you missed the most valuable lesson. Your dog loves you unconditionally and it doesn’t matter what kind of life you have led, she/he will always be there for you. And no matter your transgressions, you should be there for them at the end also. That is a true measure of love. I had my lab put down in my family room by our vet. It was heartbreaking yet she was so sick, I felt that it was a relief for her. It was comforting to know that she was safe and loved at the end.
