I'm not sure if I'm just getting more and more emotional as I get older or what, but there is a commercial right now that just brings me to tears. Happy tears mind you, but still tears every time. 

Have you see it? It's a commercial for Amazon. It shows a young couple on the floor playing with their baby, but when their beautiful Golden Retriever comes up to the baby the baby cries and the dog sadly walks away. The baby girl is fascinated with a stuffed lion, so the dad orders a lion's mane for the dog to wear and the baby girl accepts the dog and isn't afraid anymore.

The first time I saw the ad I kept rewinding it and I must have watched it 10 times. What gets me every time in this ad is the look on the dog's face. He is so incredibly sad looking as he watches the family from a distance. The shot of his face with the lion's mane on really gets me. It seems everyone else laughs at this point, but what do I do? I start crying! Ugh! Talk about pulling at my heart strings. Maybe this commercial speaks to my inner child and my love for the movie Born Free and my fascination with big cats and my love for dogs. Or maybe I'm just turning into an even bigger emotional sentimental fool.
