By now, probably everyone in the known universe has seen the following video. I think it has been viewed several million times, but perhaps this will make it several million and one. There has been some debate recently over whether animals are sentient beings. I have always felt they are. How often have we witnessed an animal doing something, and we have said, "That's almost human..." I remember when I was a little girl, my brother told me that humans are animals, and I didn't understand it. How could we be animals? We're human. But I realize now that humans and animals share much more than we realize. And sometimes, judging by some human behaviour, we are fortunate to share some animal characteristics. And yes, I believe animals are sentient beings ~~ very much so.
All together now, "Awwwwww...."
