D’aww. I want a dog.
And a cat. And then another dog. Or six dogs. In fact, I’d be totally fine living in a huge pile of infant animals (my Baby Animal Pinboard is really getting out of hand).
This cute Milkbone commercial is exactly the reason why. Although the dog here is grown, not a puppy, his loyalty to his lady owner, and excitement for her arrival just warms my heart.
That’s probably because the song in the background is “Make This Leap”, by the Hunts. The song highlights the risks of getting into a relationship with someone, but it doesn’t gloss over the fun of things. This band from Chesapeake, Virginia, consists of SEVEN siblings. Which is really a lot of siblings. Thank God for this huge family, though. I think even one voice less would rob us of the full delight of this song.
What makes Pupper-bottom’s excitement so lovely is that he’s excited to see the lady of the house – and really, only the lady of the house. I want that love. Times a half-dozen animals, who will be devoted to me and pull me around town on my skateboard when my legs get tired.
Check out the full song here. I picked the lyrics video, because honestly, it doesn’t get much sweeter than this.
I can see, I can see
Your heart, through your eyes
