Some believe that dogs are not emotional like us. We, humans, cry when we are happy, lonely, or angry. As for dogs, they shed tears to indicate the status of their health and well-being.
For example, when dogs’ eyes are in bad condition, their tear ducts automatically drain water to keep the eyes functioning.
Others say that a crying dog is a bad omen. According to astrology experts, when dogs see a lurking spirit or ghost lingering around them, you would expect them to cry. That is the very reason why some people drive dogs away when they see them in that situation. It scares them!
But the crying dog in the video below is different. It cries neither because of a bad health condition nor a sign of fear towards an unseen creature.
As expressed by almost a million viewers of the video, this dog sheds tears because it is aware of the stranger’s generosity who gives it food.
Here’s what happens. The man in the video, who probably is on his way home after a day of work, feeds a stray dog. He offers a piece of food and then later plays happily with the dog.
The viewers think that out of the dog’s gratefulness, it becomes immediately comfortable with the man as it runs and jumps around him.
When a dog suddenly becomes playful with us, it is among their greeting behaviors. They do it to show us, humans, their growing affection towards us.
The viewers did not see coming is the dog crying towards the end of the clip. It is not a howl like how you think a crying dog does. it is not that high-pitched sounds like that of music or sirens. The dog’s cry is silent. The pup’s tears fell to show gratefulness to the generous man.
People say that dogs cry when they desire attention, feel frustrated, solicit resources like food to eat and water to drink. But the dog in the video, like humans, is emotional. It indeed knows how to communicate its feelings.
