Everyone knows a dog is man’s best friend, but a pooch can be so much more.

I found this ode to canines, sadly titled ‘One Day Your Dog Will Die,’ and it reminds us how important it is to soak up each day we have with these companions.

It’s kind of sad and strangely uplifting all at once and the fact the guy narrating it has a William Wallace in ‘Braveheart’-meets Animal Planet thing going only adds to its allure.

So, watch and then go give your dog a big ol’ hug. You’ll definitely want to.
