Most of us might have watched the movie "The Lion King" as a child and this iconic film leaves everyone teary-eyed. So, when Zoe Ansary (@bosco.and.the.fam) makes her dog Bosco watch the film, she also has similar emotions. Bosco is so into the movie that he emotes at every important part of the film and one could feel his heartbreak. The video begins with a text overlay, "I finally watched The Lion King with my dog and this is what happened" and the caption reads, "He cries at the same part I cried at when I was 4."

Bosco is seen standing in front of the TV and intently watching the part where Simba is surrounded by the wolf pack and he tries to scare them off. After which, while watching the part where Simba's dad, Mufasa falls and dies, the dog also begins to cry with Simba. It seems like Bosco can feel the pain that the young lion is going through.

The video has about 28 million views on TikTok. Many in the comments section were left emotional after watching the video. @ryogarciaaa shared, "How come this dog understands the story? This is mindblowing." @cc_ca2 expressed, "This is actually so cool to see. Sometimes I think humans underestimate dogs/animals." @crazycrayon6 commented, "What do you mean when you were 4? It still makes me tear up and I'm 32." My dog did the same." @angeliccn11 said, "Awww that is the sweetest thing ever. He is super intelligent. Emotional intelligence is high." @alannabenett0 commented, "Awww my pup cried at this part too could see her get anxious when it happened."

This video is a perfect example of how animals also feel similar emotions and they also often support their owners when they are going through a difficult phase. And maybe that's why a dog is called a man's best friend. In another video posted on the page, Bosco can be seen with Ansary's daughter. They are in the car and the child touches his nose twice. Instead of reacting to it, he allows her to do that. Later, he quietly puts his head on her lap and looks outside, this time the child doesn't disturb or push him. That's when the mother tells him, "He loves you." He sleeps off on her lap and then the child gently touches his nose again. One gets to see a beautiful relationship developing between the two.

I love how gentle he is with our children." @skyealleyspeaks commented, "The dog took a second and was like 'yep, I’d die for her. Gimme the boops'." @any0ne1111 said, "I love how she knows she has to be gentle put her arms up and everything love this."@karlypatterson6 shared, "It’s amazing how dogs have a way of finding exactly where they belong."
