Thousands of great viral videos have blessed the Internet over the years; Lazy Sunday, Charlie Bit My Finger, Amish Skydiving — the list goes on. But those clips are old piles of crap compared to this fleeting moment captured by a home security camera in Lousiana.
Every other shot in cinematic history pales in comparison to the raw power of this goddamn little boy jumping off his bike and the moments after (no more spoilers, just watch if you haven’t seen it).
SNEAKING AROUND? This young boy was caught on surveillance camera regularly running into his neighbor’s garage…but what was he stealing? A hug from a very lovable dog! http://abcn.ws/28l5Ijb

#YouTubeLife must have made me a pessimist because I was full-on expecting the kid to run into the garage and punt the dog. Why else would the video have gone viral? But no – that little hillbilly gives that stupid mutt the most sincere hug you’ve ever seen.
I can’t help but hate the little jackasses for making me miss my own furry friends so doggone much. Honestly, I’ve changed my mind. Screw these shitheads.
… or enjoy the kid’s happy ending below.
BOY AND HIS DOG: Our story about a Louisiana boy trespassing in a neighbor’s garage to hug their dog reached 100 million people worldwide – many offering the boy a dog of his own. His mother finally gave in and Steve Osunsami has the lovable update. #AmericaStrong
