Dog Steals Baby’s Toy and Then Repents by Showering Her With Gifts

It's so comforting to see them make amends

When this dog named Charlie decided to help himself to his human sister’s stuffed animal, he made her cry, because obviously. That was a pretty rotten thing to do. Charlie seems to realize this pretty quickly, because he attempts to apologize to her by bringing her a series of new toys. The remorse he feels is quite palpable.

Note: the music in this video gets to be a bit much, so we suggestmuting it and adding your own soundtrack. We recommend a classic apology track, like Elton John’s “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word”:
