"Himalaya" may be the world's most gentle dog. A viral video shows the canine refusing to give up on a toddler who doesn't want to play. It will absolutely melt your heart. The little boy in the video is Hernán, from Buenos Aires. Hernán has Down Syndrome, which, according to comments posted by his mom Ana, causes him to shy away from physical contact. But Himalaya is persistent and gentle, and Hernán ends up giving her what looks like a hug around the 3:12 mark. Watch this and you will smile all day.
