A much needed dose of humanity from one golden retriever who’s obviously a reliable part of this man’s family

There’s nothing overtly political about this video, except perhaps its providing clear evidence for the fact that animals need to be recognized for their dignity and humanity, and have their rights protected under law. Just see how this dog sits, perched up beside its owner’s bike, protecting it while he’s away; then, when his human friend returns, the dog carefully steps up onto the back of the bicycle, then barks, signalling that he’s ready to ride away. If that’s not an animal with a keen sense of how the world works, I don’t know what is. Have a look. It’s truly adorable.
