damn you, smart advertisers!

For those of you who know me, you know that I can't get through a commercial, movie, tv show, or greeting card that involves dogs without crying. There's just something about puppies that make my tearducts well up and I just can't stop. Even typing this I'm getting a little verklempt.

So when Purina launched this commercial for their adoption drive, I had to shield my eyes from the screen pretty often. In fact, I'm sittng here at my desk, tissue in hand, because I just accidentally watched it. Oh, Echo.



Do you see how sad it is? Honestly. If you can get through that without getting emotional, you must have no soul.

So, imagine my surprise when watching TV the other night and THIS comes on!



Happy tears!!! So many happy tears!!

So, if you can, go out and adopt a dog. I mean, honestly. Save an Echo.
