It’s been pointed out that petting a dog lowers a person’s blood pressure. Just imagine what giving a bath to a puppy must do. As this adorable video demonstrates, the steady stream of water does wonders for the puppy too.
Undoubtedly, just watching the following video from barcroft.tv can also bring you a little relaxing joy. This shouldn’t be a surprise since interactions like this with dogs trigger the same brain regions activated by the sight of human infants. Talk about a moment of zen.
Things weren’t always so happy, though. Claire Fowler, the woman featured in the video, found this trio of lovable pups in a dumpster. At the time, they were covered in fleas, and as pointed out, this can be especially dangerous for puppies only two weeks old due to anemia from flea bites. Flea control chemicals are also out of the question, so the bathing serves another purpose beyond just soothing the puppies.
It’s pretty certain she’ll also have to perform their mother’s job of stimulating them to relieve themselves until they can manage on their own. Clearly, this is someone with a lot of compassion.
Watch this video and you can witness Ms. Fowler’s dedication to these darling puppies by giving them formula every couple of hours.
As much work as this is, an even bigger chore will be to find them permanent homes when they’re ready for that stage in life. If they can hang onto a little of their current charm, though, it shouldn’t be that hard
