It was an emotional moment for a Montana rescue dog as he sat in front of the family’s television and sadly whimpered and cried when an advertisement from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty appeared showing abused and neglected animals accompanied by the touching background music. According to the dog’s owner, Happy became extremely agitated when the commercial came on – perhaps he remembers the theme music?

Natalie LaTurno, who is Happy’s human companion stated:

“I adopted my rescue dog, Happy, from C.A.R.E animal shelter in Springfield, Missouri about 9 years ago (he is 10 years old now),”

As to her dog’s reaction, Natalie did admit this isn’t the first time he reacted this way:

“I’m not sure if the commercial played often at the shelter he was at or if he truly just has an emotional connection to the song or animals on the screen. I guess that would be a question only he would know the answer to,” she admitted.

Everyday we learn a little bit more about the wonderful life of dogs. Give your dog a kiss and tell him he’s a “good boy.” (or girl)

    These animals are not stupid. They remember how they were treated by HUMANS and they object to the treatment as much as the “good humans” do. Unfortunately the BAD HUMANS out number the GOOD HUMANS.

    Happy is like the rest of us, can’t take the sad faces of the poor homeless pets. I’m so glad Happy found a wonderful home, wouldn’t surprise me at all that he remembers his days at the shelter.

    Dogs are much much smarter than humans and are also much more compassionate – the only dumb animal is the human one – Happy is just one example of this.
