Dog Joins 3-Year-Old In Timeout, Photos Goes Viral In Minutes
A photo of a 3-year-old boy and his English Mastiff dog standing together during a timeout has captured the hearts of social media users. The photo, taken by Jillian Smith of Norwalk, Ohio, shows her son Peyton and their dog Dash standing side by side during a timeout. Smith shared the photo on Facebook, where it has been shared over 43,000 times.
According to Smith, Peyton had a moment of anger and hit his 5-year-old sister Ryleigh. As a result, he was given the choice to either go to his room or have a timeout. Peyton chose timeout, and that’s when Dash decided to join him.
“I just happened to have my phone on me at the time he was in timeout and took the picture,” Smith told Good Morning America. “I adore the picture, definitely something I will treasure forever.”
The photo has received thousands of comments from people touched by the image of the two friends standing together. Many people praised Dash for being a supportive and loyal companion to Peyton.
Smith’s photo is just one example of the special bond that can exist between humans and their pets. Dogs, in particular, have a reputation for being loyal and loving companions, and this photo captures that bond perfectly. It’s not uncommon for dogs to sense when their human counterparts are feeling down or upset, and to offer comfort and support in any way they can.
In this case, Dash’s presence provided Peyton with the comfort and support he needed during a difficult moment. And for that, he will always be remembered as a sweet and loyal friend.
