The boy was lying with fever on the sofa - when Mom came back to check him, she could not believe her eyes
You probably know the feeling. You are home, sick, lying helpless on the couch, feeling a bit sorry for yourself and waiting until you can stand on your feet again.
I think most people would agree that at the moment there is nothing they would want more than a warm, loving and caring embrace.
And loving and caring is exactly what little Carter got from his mother while he was lying on the couch with a fever. But at some point, Mom went to another room in the house - and when she came back, she could not believe her eyes.
It turns out that someone had done her part in caring for the little boy.
And not just someone - the family's dog, Toby.
Toby must have realized that Carter needed to be comforted, so he curled up with him on the sofa and share him a company.
Is there any better way to recover from a disease than a dog's hug?
The mother was deeply moved by the moment, of course, so she immediately took out the camera and recorded it in a video which millions of people from all over the world had already watched.
